It leaves you

Something dear, Something close, It leaves you, It vanishes suddenly. And you, Left bereft, Trying to fathom, What you lost, Will it ever resurrect? The void remains, As you reminisce, Tears roll, But to no suffice.

If tomorrow will come

As I stand at the cusp, I pause and think. What had gone by, Its kaleidoscope whirred in mind's eye. Those buried dreams,those inane desires, Those silly joys, Long gone and dead, Now get a whiff of life, Make tarried movements, As they rouse from their hoary slumber. I reminisce our camaraderie, How we wove… Continue reading If tomorrow will come

Torment:(a cinquain)

Torment, A perverse joy, A vitriolic jibe, A trail of boundless agony, I smile.

Finding yourself

She had learnt how to love herself, And that was the most dangerous weapon of all. She changed the hoary paradigms, As she set precursors new. New beginnings, Distant shores, Lands beyond and unknown, She strove to find her lot.

All the world's a stage , And I am a thespian, Hiding behind a hundred different masks, And none to unmask the real me .

The branches brown and bare, Stare at the leaves… Continue reading When the tempest died down

May be……

The dark clouds hovering on the grey sky, The sun blotted out. The air dead and calm. An eerie stillness all around, Shackling its claws sharp and profound. She stood in the eye of the storm, Impervious to tumult around. The myriad grains of scattered thoughts, Embroiling her, Taunting her, Laughing at her, Telling her… Continue reading May be……

Under the starry skies

Under the starry skies, I walked into unknown lands, Weaving dreams big and small. I was afloat with unbounded zest, I wanted to grow new wings to fly, I was not daunted by strange things and new. Flushed with bubbling fantasies, I grew new plumes to fly yonder. I wanted to do more, I wanted… Continue reading Under the starry skies

Forest

I can see the sun, Rising over the rooftops of my town, But the darkness lingers in the forest behind me. It drips from broken branches, Only in ways that only darkness could. The peace has long fled my being, I can feel the talons of darkness, They grip my heart. The sun warms the… Continue reading Forest
