Sleep Away My Son

On the days when you don’t feel, Like getting up, On the days when you wish, You could hide away under your pillow, And block any glimpse of sunlight, When the dreams paint the world around you, Sleep away, my son… This is for you on the days, When laziness …

To Dig Up Knowledge, You Have To Dig Around

Sweating students; Anxious parents; Invigilating teachers Clinking of pencil boxes, Scratching of quills, Rustling of paper, Mindless pouring out of knowledge. *** Students write, scribble and scrawl, In the solemn air of the exam hall; brain dead they are. Diarrhea of all sorts spilling onto papers. Doodling with numbers, And …

A Facade of Laughing Bonhomie

Behind her facade, Is a sorrow with reason. A girl who was filled with, Insecurities, and sadness. Emotions; locked and imprisoned, Like a tiny white-winged dove. * Behind her facade, I know a different person. Who lives in a hope with dying light, Looking happy and carefree. Hiding a boiling, …

Shall We Agree To Disagree

  Tell me, Shall we agree to disagree- That fear exists only in the mind And wealth is entirely subjective * Tell me, Shall we agree to disagree- That poetry is a form of expression; a means to protest, It’s not for the faint of heart but for the strong …

Nothing Is Ever Finished

I keep your memories Locked in a box, Hidden in my heart. Like you keep Your love for me, Hidden in your mind. * Incomplete; Without the piece You took from me. Life is a spectrum that exists Between the black and white. Grey; being questions that have no answer. …

Amidst The Sands of Time

Poised like an ocean; deep and infinite, Sometimes calm, at times tempestuous. But with whatever happens on the surface, I do have a serious qualm. Ripples and waves that arise and subside, Are all signs that there’s life existing down inside. My mere existence; Encompassing the land, Clouds and atmosphere …

Sometimes It’s Just Better To Pretend

  I’ll pretend Once again To be fine and happy That lies and deceit don’t bother me anymore That I don’t feel sad, that nothing hurts me anymore. * I’ll pretend Once again That I didn’t notice your silence That I don’t feel bad That you are forever busy and …

Dancing With the Devil

My heart is beating… That’s all I hear. Getting faster and faster, Head pounding with every second that goes by. Constant nausea; plagued by fear. Tightness in my chest, Suffocating: I can’t breathe. ***** I need to get out of here, I need to breathe. Sweating cold bullets of fear, …

Life Touches You Like That

Wandering aimlessly, Begging for food to assuage his hunger in life He wore a shirt, Old and tattered… Holes in places faded all over; Sans buttons; Chest plastered with bandages; Of injuries unknown to me. *** It was so ironic, Me alighting from my car. Going to buy samosas* to …
