What’s yours?

You vent your pride over a castle Oblivious, you call it yours The earth crumbles it with a slight tremble Leaving you with wails and tears.  Do I need to say the pace at which wealth dwindles Or how long people last It takes but a minute to lose them all You believed you gainedContinue reading “What’s yours?”

Pain and Poetry

Today why my heart rips apartMy soul knocks on my chest expecting propulsionWhy I drown into nothingness todayWhy sorrow feels like something to be sufferedAnd not expressed.I remember there were daysNot so rosyYet days when alphabet clamoured in mindSwimming in the pool of emotionsDays when I would sit backTo carefully string them into wordsAnd stuffContinue reading “Pain and Poetry”

Don’t Listen

If we stop for a while and look around us, most of us will not find ourselves in the place we wanted to be, someday. We have often changed paths. Presumed adversities have overpowered our exigency to explore a new way. Most of the time it’s our well wishers who hold us back. Their intentionsContinue reading “Don’t Listen”

Wish there was a God for real

Not much explanation this time. This poem is self-explanatory. Though we have unflinching faith in Him and know that we will always have Him to fall back on, at times we can’t help wishing his presence to be a bit more pronounced. I wish there was a God for realWho would encircle his colossal palmsContinue reading “Wish there was a God for real”

Decrypting latent disciplines

As my skin glistens under the blazing charismaOf the sun,The warmth pervading my skin,Melting the frozen carapace around the sensesStoking them to rise from a deep slumberI struggle to severe my hypnotic lashesOnly to be blinded by the glowing sunWho apparently mocks at meLike it does at a million others, under its shadeWho grapple withContinue reading “Decrypting latent disciplines”

Paradoxical life

Despite enduring all the pressure, a diamond stone won’t dazzle until its cut and polished. A lot of times there are people quite unfortunate who undergo all the pressure but are forgotten by the diamond cutter to be polished. And, because they don’t shine we fail to notice them. Not all those who stand onContinue reading “Paradoxical life”

Know that..

In a ted talk I was recently listening to, the speaker used a line, ” Life is a race but who asked you to take part? ” This hit me hard. We have been so busy finding a space in the queue for ourselves that we have forgotten to ask what we want out ofContinue reading “Know that..”

The Union

Towards the end of every sweltering summer, life on earth fails to keep itself pepped. Eyes go up, towards the heaven and hearts devoutly call for the tranquil drops to come down. Monsoon, clouds and rain have always amazed us. From the petrichor pleasing our nostrils to the sober wind carrying it, to the rhythmContinue reading “The Union”

Yin and yang

“If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation” These lines have their roots in the ancient Chinese philosophyContinue reading “Yin and yang”

Shed The Drops

When mind is crammed and heart sunkenBut words betray and you fail to speakLet your lashes kiss each otherAnd a drop of tear roll down your cheek. Oh! What a blissful respite to feelThe lump in your throat, dropping through eyesThe heat of it, momentarily meltingThe agonizing façade that you use as disguise. How longContinue reading “Shed The Drops”
