Shadows

You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent. And your memories are suspended in time. Lives that you have brushed up against, Now live with an imprint of you, Firmly trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory not. You leave the steps in the sands of time, And you come… Continue reading Shadows

Vagaries

Vague are the vagaries of life, They tell us To silence us. They show us To blind us. They lead us To mislead. Vague emotions And nameless turmoils, Make you fall in the vortex of life. The cauldron of life Brims over With life emoticons All over.

Cobbled Clutter

Full of adamant edifices, They never let us go! We fall, We rise, Only to fall again. Traversing rough terrains, Clanging on the cobbled clutter, Life goes on.

One day these dark clouds, These dark clouds that overcast my sky, My sky that is no longer blue. Blue overwhelms my soul, My soul yearns for the sunny warmth, Sunny warmth with its irridiscent hues, Hues that no longer colour my life. My life awaits the day, The day the sun will shine again.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto

Years roll by, All in a silent cacophony, The nimble tread of time, You failed to hear it's chimes, It eavesdropped, It knew your secret desires. But the stealthy elf, It… Continue reading Play Of Time

Unexpected Ways

Unexpected are the ways of life, It's brethren are known but unknown. You assume to forget, You walk to get lost in the life's maze. The travesty of life, It's turns and twists, Consume you, Overwhelm you. But a brave heart you are! You sleigh the unforseen demons, Surfing on the fortuitous furore, You reach… Continue reading Unexpected Ways

A Question

Doing the daily things, The hours go by. The days go by. The weeks go by. The months go by. The years go by. And then one day, I wake up from the stupefied slumber, Hair all tousselled, Eyes sleep puffed, And mind in inertia. I wake up, And ask myself aloud, A litany of… Continue reading A Question
