Amidst The Sands of Time

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 above, Which in turn return … Read more

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 eat, Not out of hunger. … Read more

Break Away From the Cacophony

Dead to the core, but moving still, Trying to make a change. Letting go; breaking down to cry; cacophony When adversity strikes. *** Dragging our feet, Watching; waiting to hear the siren’s call. Pushing onward until we find, The answer to this, inside our mind. *** We slog ourselves every day, And attempt to stand … Read more

Chance Encounters

chance encounters

Lies; hypocrisy; Mediocrity of thoughts Strange malaise, One I can’t place. Persistent lethargy. Sloth-like and heavy. Expulsion of anger so violent; chance encounters Incessantly recurrent. Confusions and misgivings. The enigma of the absurd. *** In a moment, Of silence and solitude, I stand dumbfounded; Completely baffled; perplexed. My inner being, Unable to understand, Labyrinths of … Read more

A Woman; Between Pennies and Sandwiches

Woman

A mother; a daughter, A daughter in law; a wife, A sister; a girlfriend; a lover, A boss or An employee… You can watch her run  A company Or a kitchen With the bread  Butter, knife or a pen. *** Sandwiched between, Both the worlds Earning pennies; making sandwiches; Sometimes facing, Loneliness and ire, Between two slices, In … Read more

A Twinkle So Dear

Twinkle

It’s been a long time Since I have heard You to be excited about something In words describing the joy It brings to you… It’s been a long time Since you spoke About something with passion That captured your imagination And put a spring in your steps. It’s been a long time Since I caught … Read more

Caress of Blissful Divinity

Caress

Separated; like the night sky from the day, Caress; the soft embrace of love, pulling at their heartstrings, A desire of a union meant to be withheld. Love tearing them apart with a cruel and swift hand. The world split in half, And on each end were lovers… The sun and the moon *** The Moon; … Read more

A Tune So Grand

  The muffled sound of your baby breathing. Voice of your parents on the phone. Sharing thoughts with your beloved, Or screaming of kids as they play Is a tune so grand. *** In the midst of silence; at nightfall, The sky turns into a sheet of grey. Thunder, lightning and droplets of rain, Pleasantly … Read more
