And I lived another day!!!!!

I made a promise
To myself, not to judge you
You and your omnipotent powers
Power of truth and power of dependency.

But, every time I falter,
When the sun sets, and
When the birds are
Mutely cocooned.
The eerie darkness
Brings along with it
The dark ghosts of yonder
Like scythe marauders
Thirsty for fresh blood..

Unknown fears too
Knocks at the soft walls.
Revealing a fogginess,
Laden with rapier edge.

Night, a nemesis
Like a sepia tomb
Curses the breathe
And, when dawn sets in
It leaves its marks
With deadlines of
Another night in waiting......

And again, fear steps in......



Brave words
So easy to say
Than be done,"self-denial"
An overdue of conscious effort.

How long does one go on?
Faking every waking moment.
Slow decay seems like "lead".

The stench, sometimes
Reminds of the residue
Is it "life" crying out?
Or some shapeless shadows?

Finality of things
Scares the "HELL"
Of being alive
And not living enough.

Deny and deny till one drops "dead"......


The unwanted Guest!!!!!

It came,
Unnoticed, stealth
Invader with sharp claws
Carrying the tools of death..

Dark it was
But, what force!!
Left gasping for breath
Like a marauder in pursuit!!

Who can fight against it?
The chemical composition
Or the spiritual affiliation?
The sheer myth of life in shreds!!!!!

It came,
Dangling on heartbeat
Twisting and gripping
At its own will..

Pain......what audacity thy!!!!

The Cuckoo

I awoke with a jolt
A hushed silence pierced through
What was that sound?
So sweet and melodious
I let my soul wander
For that momentarily pleasure!

Ah!! It came from my backyard
Concealed among the foliage
Such bliss in the voice
Serenading the morn galore
Dark and small it looked !!

I peeped through my window
Craning my neck to view
What a contradictory sight
Dark and melody entwined
In one of god's own miracles!!

Ah!! the branches cradled
The beauty of voice
Among its midst atop
And lo behold!!
I gave a cry of pleasure
To see the queen of melody
Nestled among the green!!

The sweetest voice
Of the dark countenance
Held me in its maze
And worked like an antidote
Against the darkened clouds of my soul!!!


Sweet Adversity?

Sweet Adversity?

So sweet are the fruits of adversity
So says some with such aplomb
Serenading bravely the leaf of hope
Sarcasm laced with a pinch of salt

Somehow, some fall for the falseness
Stupefied with the sharp tongue
Scattering thorns across the brittle path
Scavenging on the plight befallen

Shady ghosts laugh aloud
Stealth eagles hovering at every toll
Show the sky, dark clouds
Shooting stars awaited too long…

Make way for the cross bearer
Timeless adversity….


Wait for me..

Calm down!!
Why such hurry?
Let me take a breather
Yeah...i know
Can see the clock ticking
But...there is so much to do...

Maybe a little
Just a little ..
The time stand still
And i shade the scars
For a little while..

The darkness
shriek in all directions
Claiming the leftovers.........


I let it engulf me wholesomely........

Milestones of Destiny

There are so many issues in life
Which forms the milestones of experienced strife.
Some hard to bear, some are too soft to tread
But still, we move ahead with all the courage and fire..
Surging emotions does hamper the journey
Causing deep scars, brewing with acrimony
And, it does shatters the living reality
With the buried ghost of past memories.
One cannot change one's fateful fragility
Life takes U-turn, when one is hardly ready
And, we flow with the winds of changed destiny
Pushed ahead with the rest of the synched humanity.
We are the chosen one .......
