Daunting Times

Click on the image to hop on to my journey of self discovery through art on Instagram.

Little by little
Feeling of void kicks in

Trapped in arms of
Daunting times

Scarred by dreams
Of sweet illusions

I’m losing my way
Come, hold my hand

In no particular direction
Am I headed.

I thought I knew
And I wish I could do
Things I was not meant to!

Discovering places that
were never made for me

Hearing those words that
were never said to me

I’ve lost my way!

*My experiments with Life*

Love in a Wisp

A wisp of love led me astray
Sipping the toxins unknown, dismay

See rains in May, clouds tearing the sun
Supposing – the mist dripped one by one

It were tears, leading solitary fears
Not willing to give up, fleeting warmth

Sniping the reality, like a foreign dream
Call into question the innocent sleep

Insane – the crossroads, no one around
The winds playing, make a pensive sound

The wide light orange, kicks in a hint
A shadow’s stint, demands to lead a way

Blinded by trust, the clouds too follow
Searching for morrow, unsated desires

Lying deep within the illimitable oceans
The darkest secrets of broken hearts

Will never be the same – love in a wisp
Love in a wisp, devil’s sip, angels dip

Cluttered head

There are knots of thoughts
In every corner of my brain

Some needed clutter
And the ache of strain

Unfolding some
Dumping the other

With every passing day
Its only crumbling further

Shadows of reality

Shadows of reality
Darkness in prosperity

Don’t be a fool
You’re no more in school

Turn around
Listen to that sound

Its calling you by its side
You just should not hide

Run on this ground
Now cease to frown

Life is beautiful
You got to be a bit careful

Just untie your soul
Why don’t you wanna go

Stop living life in grids
Open up the lids

And fly at least try
Stand up again tall

Let life take a call
It may hit, every bit

And you cant go away
Coz You ought to stay
