Cheerless

A plaintive day sits on the pinnacle like an unpolished stone Woebegone feelings, a steady stream of unkind afterthoughts Placid darkness is the most dangerous at complicated moments Feels idyllic to the temporary journeyers after cursory glances Rare chances of looking beyond the thick veil of stoic images A poniard fails to cut thick reins of desolation around the area Tumultuous undercurrents snatch the early … Continue reading Cheerless

Meaning Less

Magnification of the dreams and gibbous reflection No one can illumine them at the chosen hour The suppressing darkness strolls with an unknown intent Scraping off time from the worn out clock Less noisier moments are like a heavy burden Wrung out clouds across the tattered melancholic sky A part of tenebrous life worries the part-time thinker Curiosity of the eyes, a heavy heart pushing … Continue reading Meaning Less

Far Away from Home

Words wilt, a weary world’s stillness worries the waiting travelers There are no stories to be believed anymore… an undesirable calm Evaporating happiness and trust- when can one believe again It is strange that the houses did not feel comfortable during the night A change as hard as the stubborn boulders shatter peace and dreams Following every possible lie was easier… convinced about them Grief … Continue reading Far Away from Home

I Cannot Follow the Stories

You speak in haste and voices change tracks without warning My ears are strained while listening to your stories Before my mind can examine, they get entangled with a new theme It irks me that I cannot listen to you in leisure Go away- travel some more, gather some more stories; carry some patience next time As if your tongue is misdirected by the misdirected … Continue reading I Cannot Follow the Stories

How Long? Enough to Think

How long can you slouch over the morning and try to repress the lights Sitting erect may become an arduous task due to the immense burden Of the unseen worries, the imagined times of turmoil, and scant hope Dreams that were seeded never had enough opportunity to germinate Feels, like the flickering horizon, is trying to communicate frantically There’s never enough room for the contradictory … Continue reading How Long?
