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

Expectations Getting Older

Angst getting older
Unfolded expectations
Buried years ago..

To Be or Not to Be

I often see disgrace in love
I often see selfishness in giving

I feel the force of hatred in me
I feel the shade
But its only a Tree

Sometimes to give
And sometimes to be

As loving as one can
And selfless as a bee

I know it as today
But tomorrow will I see?

A dream of togetherness
with depth of a sea

I don’t know it now
who will tell me how

or whether
‘To be or not to be..’

Happy Endings..

Stayed
With the bruises for long

Been
In pain throughout

Futile efforts
Chasing my dreams

Wandering alone
The silence screams

Empty,
Without love were vases

Until you walked
Filling blank spaces

Muted

Flower
Colored the deserts

Did not know how

Abandoned,
No longer now!

Bliss of the Unknown

Invisible shackles and untied bonds
Fastened up across the ankles

Speculated thoughts work all day long
Like dusk forever and waiting for the dawn

Twisted arms in the veil of love
Dried tears gradually gathering up toxins
On the morrow of victory the joy deceases

Unknown defeat from the mirror it laughs
From considerations to reasonable justifications

One side sea and other side is the valley
Swim across, not willing to take the mighty fall

Looking ahead with the regrets of the past
Unwilling to walk ahead along the lonely boulevard

Impressive power possessed in fate of the day
As night comes opening it’s deprived claws

Crushing the fictitious dreams of the meek
Enslaved lives unhappily wearing fake smiles
Indulged souls, a vicious bliss of the unknown
