The Watchmaker

1fb2b600b3a21543babb7848f8525621

Standing here and watching
The horizons close down
As the clouds float by,
Birds hasten back to their nests
And the night shall go whispering past…

On the verge of tomorrow and the brink
Of today, m
y heartbeats quicken
As my thoughts and images expand.

Overcoming the unreal fears of today
And investing in hopes of a brighter tomorrow

He, the watchmaker of the Universe,
Has kept us all in time,
Never for a moment deserting us
But always moving time forward,
For each at his own pace.

Dancing With the Devil

justinbower_closeup_truebelievers

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

My heart beating,
That’s all I hear.
Getting faster and faster,
Head pounding 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,
I wonder why I’m panicking.
All I can think of; how did this happen?
Why me? Why my kids? Why my dogs?
Why? Why? Why?

*****

It’s as if someone took my sanity,
Making me go blind.
Worries controlling my thoughts,
I cling to my insecurities that threaten to devour me.
My brain: moving a mile a minute,
Racing my thoughts to the finish line.
And suddenly the panic sets in….!!

*****

All my body’s strength ebbing away.
I have to sit, so that I don’t fall.
My legs suddenly unable,
To support my body weight.
And then I’m staring, praying desperately,
Everything is too tight, too close, too much.
As I sink to the ground the tears come pouring down.

*****

Alone. Helpless. Trapped.
I feel I’m dancing with the devil,
His nail moving down my spine; spreading his poison.

As I Lie Dying

article-2618009-1D86AFC200000578-135_634x410

 By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

The trees shivering,
The skies weeping,
The steady thump of falling mortars,
Sounds dull to my ears.
Shadows bending silently,
Towards the spot in which I lie,
Tiredness engulfs me,
Like the diminishing glow of sunset,
Silhouetting the naked trees.
Death beckons me.

*****

As if in a dream,
My mind now playing games with me,
Ceaselessly trying to remember,
The sweet remembered melodies,
Soft ringing; of my beloved’s voice.
With a deafening thud the shell lands;
Exploding: the world echoes its way in, and,
I am left to be aware of what was before me: warzone,
Ever so slowly ignoring the ache snaking through me in whispers,
Pick up my weapon, I fire again.

*****

My comrade lies still,
As I glance at this hands; shape of those fingers,
Hands that once held his son: lie lifeless now,
A moment of infinity enters.
Memories of happier days flash across my mind: like a dream,
I had almost forgotten how it had begun.
Now I lie here in the battlefield; Equally suffering;
Sharpnels ripping me apart,
Seeing the shooting star fall like ash from a charcoal sky,
Wondering why we’re all stuck in it?

*****

The night growing colder still,
Wraps its icy fingers around my heart.
Numbness spreads; feeling nothing but a dull ache.
A sense of betrayal creeps in.
What my mind has tried so hard to erase,
Who do I lay down my life for?
For those indulging in red tapism?
For those who refuse to give me my dues
While I was alive?
Their ideologies and excuses don’t hurt me anymore.

*****

As I die lonely today,
Abandoned by the Govenment and bureaucracy; that rejoices today,
And continues to feed the lies
to the nation it leads;
That a soldier doesn’t need money to go by…
I cannot pin the shiver that runs across my skin.
Because when they don’t care enough,
While I die protecting them…
What will they care about my world: my family,
That I have left behind…!!!

 

This poem about the anguish a soldier is going through fighting at the borders.
How betrayed and let down he feels as the Indian Government refuses to give the dues to the Armed Forces in the 7th Pay Commission.
Today the 1st of September 2016, the whole nation gets its 7CPC dues except for the Armed Forces, as the govt lacks the time and inclination to solve the anomalies in it.

Lies: Truths We Wish To Hear

download

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Lies;
Broken promises and crushed hopes
A different brand of heartbreak
Mind rationalizing the malady
Sabotaging relationships
Unknown depths of dark deceit
Stabbing; silently through the chest.

***

Cheat;
Playing wicked games of mind
The truth hidden, a black vacuum
Choking the essence of love
Chooses to stay on; ignoring,
Caging our sanity; paralyzing the heart
Strangling  commonsense till blind.

***

So easy to lie and cheat
But can one cheat on Death…?
