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*

The Barred Choices

The air filled with mourns
In an empty amphitheater

Waiting for the carnival of souls
Returning to the home ground

As the slowly dropping silence
Melted into the deplored voices

Of the unheard and unwanted
Joy of the barred choices

Every week! Week after week

Pain of feeding the monster, weak
Every week! Week after week

The clock is on the run
Time is having its sweet fun

This is a Friday Pun
Still 2 to go! Hold on Son!

There will be a Monday
After a run over Sunday

“Give me freedom”
And he grunts at your wish

Locked in a 10×20
Caned by words plenty

Revelations
Post-mortem operations

Awakened you will stand
But dance to tunes of same band

Every moment! Week after week
Brutally strangled, is the meek

Transparent Darkness

They have lost their way
From bed in home to their office bay

No smiles and cares
And only stranger stares

Falling in love with the screen
Living a virtual dream

Its off and they are lost
Like fearing a ghost

Running to the plugs
Crazy mad ducks

Wired connections
Unholy directions

Sad inside and laugh out loud
Artificial masks in front of the crowds

Not all they know
Nor a friend not foe

Still lost in the clouded day
From bed in home to their office bay

Been so Long

The orchids have stayed for long in my books
I do not even remember him opening the hooks
Been so long
He’s been so late
Admitting, contemplating – its been an awful wait..

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!
