Tear drenched pages, And memoirs of a haunt, The refuge of darkness, And the sombre gaze, Canopied mane, And the downcast sight, The trembling lips And the steely breath, Rushed nerves, And the fervent thoughts, The chutzpah of pain, And the echoes of diffidence, Ephemeral realities, With the wisdom of a lie, Merging greys that...

If only..

As the embers freeze and the dew swelters, As the shards embrace and words kill Some days like this, When senses override thoughts And memories loom As decisions haunt; When nothing changes yet affect hopes, And cognition ponders As regret battles truth yonder. Some days like this, When lines get blurred And ink is bled... Continue Reading →

Life of a skeptic

When the sun goes hiding And the stars gaze down, When clouds embrace their darkness And the sky canopies the wayfarer; When the lamps fade out, And the ones in flight rest their wings; When most souls pace their breaths And sleep away their toil, When silence takes a hushed reign And the cogs come...

A step here, a step there, A quivering ring Of chaos undealt. Integrity witnesses, The debate of perspectives And calm turmoils. Hypocrisy testifies, Shouting itself, Loud and clear. Is right always the right? Or is wrong the new right? Mazes of conviction, Hooded eyes And Naying lips. Contingencies of escape Rituals and summons. Knowing and... Continue Reading →

I Write.

Today, I am writing because that's what I always do, the one thing that my heart still believes in. Words. The ink and the paper, creating magic capable of healing many and wounding many. Words and their catharsis. A life-force that help souls live another day, breathe and survive another routine of mundane existence. Today,... Continue Reading →

Muted Voices

To her, an ode She, who may be next She, who already has She, who so presumes But She, who is She, who will shout and shriek And cry. She who will beckon, for humanity She, who will knock every door and beseech every soul She, who was but not is And will probably never... Continue Reading →


The ripping of masks. The startle of reality. The begining of a rut. That's how disillusionment sets in. A point from where there is no return, a point that just sucks one in and inner. This is how it feels,the meaninglessness of life, the insignificance of existence, the lost connections, a lack of energy and... Continue Reading →


Words unsaid Thoughts undone, Memories unfettered, And Reminders unbound. Starry nights ungazed, Tears uncried, Hollow barks, And rooted trees. Stones and rocks, Ebony-black, Unfazed, undaunted Swept ashore; Raging waves In silent harmony, Tired and fallen, As lost legacies kiss feet. Identities and storms, In furores over existence. Of the created and the Creator, Of obeisance... Continue Reading →

Ballad of the Forest

Daily Prompt: ForestCanopies that hide songs,Carpets that pervade miles,Barks that crunch footsteps,And roars that split asunder,Cracks in the prism,Flame-quenched oceans,Parched nomads,And withered terrains.Forests of the wild,A Schrodinger's cat,Alive yet dead.Miles across,With glittering ensemble,And swirling smoke,Tiles that crunch footsteps,And breaths that steal life.Cracks in the prism,Icy gusts that seep in cold,Parched throats,And wrinkled souls.Forests of cement,A...

Stormy Tides

Daily Prompt: Tide Frantic waves that beckon the rock And the receding shore that eludes its grasp, The only anchor, sunk to the bottom. Victim to the years of corrosion, The metal turns dust. The rage and furore of the crashing tides, The swirling foam adding to the edginess, Evasive hands, with lifeboats none The... Continue Reading →
