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

Life- story

A life, A story, You write some , Erase some. You wish to draw some, But gusts of stormy tempest, It blows the grains away. You look on. And you still draw, Small lines, Broken lines, Anonymous, Indistinct. Someday, Those lines would merge, An amalgam of all the broken ones, And a masterpiece borne. For… Continue reading Life- story

Play Of Time

You spend years of life, Years of life that go by, Years that you dreamt of, Years that you cherished with dreams of life. 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

I oscillate to and fro, Trying to fathom the flow. I hit a dead end, I rebound back, Not to bend but to transcend,… Continue reading The silent knock

I shall do

Like a sea in tempest, My soul reverberated with plans, Daring and dull, Steering my life's hull. Drifting through untested seas, Enigmatic, Unknown. Taming the tempests, Battling my stars, I surfed ahead in a frenzy untold. A zombie caught in its vicious hold. Weathered and weary, Wanting a respite, All I desired was to stand… Continue reading I shall do
