Escape

entry picture

After the party and lots of rollicking

I felt uneasy .

And some droplets of cold perspiration came

on my forehead.

I felt someone following me.

I turned back hastily.

I found nothing except my frail shadow.

Suddenly it grew larger and larger.

I could not move.

I cried for help to drag me out.

I just heard a cackle and felt a suffocation.

I woke up and found my body...

What more ?

The garish lights,

Artistic banners,

A milleu of intellects.

such well chosen melancholy music.

The costliest bouquets.

Dear society!

What more do you need

in your funeral?

Indelible

Erase the pencil mark from the

yellowish page of my heart.

You are fool as ever.

I can still read every lines,

every notch.

Some Scars,Some Joys

entry picture

Let us kiss the sunshine,

Lets adore the shy wind.

They know our story better than

You and me.

You and I were chosen to love,

to bask in the aroma.

How fooolish are we to break some eternal knot !

I feel your grin,your wit and wink.

But who cares,

I live within the moment,

Let us just accept and apart.

Then some tears may be.

But it hardly matters.

I am in so...

Seeking Help

entry picture

Every time I broke up,

I seek your help Poetry.

You are my balm.

I took up my fragile pen,

an scribble.

I dont know if they are poetry or not.

Just they are my life.

I seek your help Poetry 

everytime,in every rainyday.

I dare not ask me the reason.

I am afraid if I reply something more 

than Poetry somehow.

I just need your help Poetry.

O Sleep,O Dreams !

entry picture

How good our cosy sleep !

How good!

The burning smell does not bother

now-a-days.

The roomfreshners are doing their jobs.

ok,we need not heed their problems.

We just sleep.

Nightmares are our friends.

Dreams are dead letters.

Hush!We are sleeping.

Celebration Day

Its good to be goods,

In the invisible hands.

As if we are in a cheerful mood

to celebrate of being a puppet.

The concocted movement

all that forcible dance.

They can not restrain

they succumb.

I was labelled.

And adorably ostracized.

I hope you are celebrating

your anniversary of bondage.

So,champagne!

An Old Story

entry picture

Broken hearts practice the role

day after day.

Its an ordeal.

A metamorphosis or ecdysis.

A retribution or reward.

After a long spell of shower,

a wink.

They did their part well.

Have you heard the silent scream?

The stony path

And dried leaves ahead.

I think to subjugate.

The Sun above

And a decaying hearth in me

keep whispering "move on,there's the gate"

Glimpse of love,the cosy lap of life

all are but a day dream.

The journey is the life

and the struggle is destiny.

Debt

You have gone too far.

I am done and dusted dear.

Nope,I will move on.

Move on with a smile.

I owe nothing to you,

even a second.

Rain reminds me the days .

Yet I shed no teardrop.

Really I owe a lot to rains.

The Desire

The phoenix is dejected, may be.

The dreams are in sleep slumber.

The obstinate shadow pricks.

Alone I am in a shabby couch

turning over the pages of life.

I decided to wake up .

Lets gamble again.

I can not succumb to helplessness

Better to burn out day by day.

Lie ..

Suppose I lied all,

All our smiles were fake.

All the vows you made

are nonexistent.

Suppose all our walks

were merely walks.

The bower we made

is a hoax.

Forget about me..

Can you console yourself ?

Sick of

Sick of your packaged life,

hatred ,cry and laughter.

We are selling same musty emotions,

in different colourful wrapper.

Review

I didn't write as they said,

directed or instructed.

Naturally I was outcasted.

I was not in a hyped review or

Concocted rostrum.

"Just gibberish" they said.

I didn't not mind.

Why should I ?

My words and emotions are

no saleable commodities.

I write for I have to write.

My joys within are my best reviews.

Just a Teardrop

As if numb with ache.

deep wound within.

Time snickers sitting somewhere.

I got down to the sea

with scars and wound.

The salty waves taught me

a lesson.

I started taming those wounds.

I make little banter with them.

I sleep better now-a-days,

Just a teardrop comes unknowingly.

Life's Poetry

Whenever I awake in morning

And look through my weedy window,

Life seems to be spoilt prose.

I get down

And go to little garden.

I relish the smell of fresh air.

The scampering squirrel and

the twittering birds awake me twice.

I start humming.

Life seems to compose a poetry again.

Shadow

the drakness trickles

over the lawn.

A body rests on couch,

Mind roams like a fawn.

Journey

Baffled by the spurious light,

I started embracing pure darkness.

I hear the whispers,

I hear the clappings.

I feel the pulse of this madding crowd.

I feel the mystery scripted within,

All colours are roaming naked

with lebels.

I am sinking in the unfathomable darkness,

There is no lie,no hoax no adulterated joy..

I know..

I know the clappings you give

are none but a trick

A trick to stick to the hard and fast system

You are afraid to vomit or swallow properly

Yet you like suffering from irreparable digestion.

You adore to be remain a hungry mendicant

Your hands are itching

Your each and every vein carries

the blood of moral sycophant.

Your nerves parrot after the crazy milieu

Flea Market

In this flea market

fake emotions sometime turn us blind.

sometimes body is sold,

Sometimes mind.

No Battle at all..

entry picture

No battle at all,

No fight,

Just kissing the lonely sky

Like a tattered kite.

Life is now at the grace of time.

Who were we?

And who held the thread ?

Each and every kite falls one day,

making the flight sublime.

I know not

 is it the rule or merely a consolation ?

Life sometimes gets vengeful

Putting us into cage of desolation.

Fading fast...

Fast fading,fast fading,

Light and darkness mixed up in cocktail,

Masks jeer at face,

How can beauty hide under polished nail?

In the golden cage,

Souls feel suffocation,

Lets join the flea-market

Bask in the concocted distinction.

Fast fading,fast fading all the divine gifts.

Give Me Word

Tedious are the ways,

Growing old with you Sun,

Burning now and then,

Still the voice haunts me "run,run".

Life is becoming stale,

Coloured wings growing pale.

I feel death when i awake,

I need sustenance to revive,

Give my burning heart

Heavy with the fragrance of life.

I want to write,I want back my thousands wings,

Bury the desires of life

that making me cowa...

Wither

The leaves of relationship

starts to fall.

Lost in the labyrinth of time,

In the carnival of show off

I found myself sticking to wall.

The wick of bonding 

is at the mercy  of petty conjunctions

Nowadays callousness in relation hurts much more than betrayal in relation.

Quest

on my painful way,

i stumble and stumble,

I wake and see the starry sky,

I laugh or grumble.

and every time I groan,

Yet I walk and walk,

still I'm in maze,

In Praise of Your Glance

entry picture

when you come thousand flowers bloom,

the gentle breeze plays the most beatiful note,

then my hearts forgets all gloom,

and the joyous lyrics begins to float.

the sky pours fourth bliss endless,

I lost in your beautiful glance,

your presence endow me with devine grace.

my desolate heart starts to dance.

your words are the most sonorous strain,

even the muse will lost,

"WE" and..

The hunger striken faces

the torn clothes,

the dying shanties,

the dusty narrow lanes,

are sobbing.

The identityless buds are searching the

diamonds of livelihood in dustbins.

our fashionable outfits steer clear

from those demasked flowers.

Can our concocted emotions and

glamourous sympathy hide us?

The oppressed are being made each day

just to showcase our galv...

Gift Me a Rainy Day

entry picture

Turning over the album of life

I find you drenching in a rainy day.

Raindrops trickled down your locks.

your captivating eyes mesmarised

all around us.

The fawn like wind seemed to

touch you on and on.

I dipped in the canyon of you lips

I lost in the abyss of bliss!

The rain seemed to be jealous.

The aroma of your body

made the time intoxicated !

The next pages ...

Camera On...

The smell of burnt blood,

The showcase of corpse,

Hunger,pain and oppression,

Fashion,sex

Lascivious life of multiplex.

Light,camera,action

Grey faces smile with dejection.

Humanity is being strangled

by the shadowy hands,

Jack-o'-lantern we are all,

sinking day by day

In the quicksand.

An Ache

When the beauty of poetry

is measured  in balance of

callous "like" ,

I ache.

And who am "I"?

I am merely an ardent devotee of poetry.

Thats all I know.

People scorn,pity..

I know,I have seen.

Yet I ache.

Don't you?

A Question

"Rip off your mask" I said

she cackled

And said "Which one ?"

Silence the night was,

save the hooting of an owl.

And the whistle of chill wind.

Fool

Sitting over the debris of love

and life,

I am looking for scattered moments

with the shovel of love.

I know not  it is insanity or not !

Whenever I try to make walls

with the cement of hatred,

your wink dissolves them all.

I know not who surpasses other

in folly.

May be you or I

or the necromancer love itself.

Murky

entry picture

enveloped by the sombre fog,

coming ways seem a cog,

sitting beside the mystical window,

there I see the passing of shadow.

Retreating towards the days of bondage,

the icy stagnant moment,

reeling over the amorous foilage.

The envy of ecstasy,

ferny murky impalpable future,

haunted by the time's prophesy.

Then comes the frail halos,

born of the breath of wizened su...

So I write

entry picture

 

My pen is no way obliged to cheap fame,

I write for I have to write.

My struggle is no way a shame,

I am awake forever for I have to fight.

My words are no way adulterated

with fake emotion,

I write for my soul makes me restless,

without striving callous attention.

Accused

The sky breaks in the border,

The lifeless walls are accused of partiality,

A life is being scrutinized under a  microscope.

People throng in the butcher shop,

This budget also defense ministry gets higher allocation,

ah!sleeping pills are getting cheaper.

We are flourishing indeed,

People bask in the exhibition of oppression,

Wherever you look you can hear

Ya,Time.

Many a times i am traumatized

I am in Lithe

Weed

The devil snickers,

Cruelty all around.

Humanity has gone into hibernation.

No rhythm

Save diabolical sound.

All humane feelings are sinking deep

into quicksand of greed,

There is no face only mask,

Human heart is getting wrapped in

colourful weed.

Wounds are sleeping here

entry picture

Silence please,

Here the wounds are in sleep slumber,

I made them sleep singing

a lullaby of life.

all pains are safe in the casket,

They are fine with me.

Dont prick them.

I have been learning to

tame all sorrows.

The new moon will go,

I konw,

I may not be there,

But you can see

how beautiful a night is !

Life Goes On

entry picture

Everday we live and die,

die and live.

Every day is a year 

Every year is day.

Mourn not ,mourn not

Live your life in a day

or live your day in life.

The gamble is on,

we are walking on footprints of 

our fate,

living in the mercy of a hunter

like a agile fawn.

Yesterday sinks into today,

Tomorrow engulfs today.

Some are lost in ob...

Like the petals opens up

And be a flower 

Spreading bliss,

Oh!dear open your lips,

I wanna kiss.

Let us lost in the labyrinths

forever and ever,

Our earth is decaying first

Let us love now or never.

I am withered feather,

Tossing in the lap of air,

Hide me your bosom,

Love me o dear.

Let your touch play piano

on my dropping thoughts,

Its an open market

Everything is sold here -

Love,hatred and care.

We are all commodities

Here your every smile can get

a good fare.

greed , violence and sex

are sold at a high price.

Its a handy chance

to be fit on the moden paradise.

Some hamane outlets 

are on the way to be bankrupted,

One step before gettinng ultra modern,

Make haste to be corrupted.

Fading..

Bundled with the drudgery of life,

Dreams are getting gloomy

day by day.

Walking over the sharp knife

reached at bay.

Our pure laughter,cries have reduced

to a microscopic size,

Our feelings are concoted

Love has become a compromise.

Sweet Wound

entry picture

My painful days

are solely mine.

Your love embalmed the pangs

making my tears sublime.

When the paths turned back

You gave me shade,

When the words left me alone

You didn't let me to fade.

Oh!time ,Oh!days

You left me deserted 

In the cage of hour,

I was numb for long,

Waking I found 

My wounds turned into flowers.

Weapon

I was at daggers drawn with my enemy

I was mad at defeating him,

So,a weapon I needed,

a weapon uncommon

that would make him bite the dust.

Hatred made me furious,

restless and an alien.

One day I saw my mother in dream,

I was in her lap and

She was ruffling my hair

And I was red in anger.

She was just adoring me.

Next day I went to my enemy

with a bouquet,

I know the melody that runs within,

flooding over the arid land,

I know the whispers that left her footsteps,

Making one after another castles of sand.

Yet the touch never fades 

Nerver fades her first sight.

In the balance of her refusal

Written In a moment of Crisis

Who am I ?

A vagrant,a poor,an unemployed youth?-

as you say .

Possibly not.

My lines are my identity

My pen is my weapon

to rip off the cobwebs .

And your love is the

the unending wealth,

a blessing forever.

No crown,no kingdom I have for sure,

But I have the purest

feelings of your heart which

fades not like the rusty sceptre.

Yes,I am poet as you know,

Camphor

entry picture

Once you gave a toast of
Your tender heart.
We lost in the abyss of
of divine bliss.
Time went on
ripples after ripples.
Your heart got black.
I felt sting of your kiss.
The meadows have 
turned into desert.
Now you've gifted me abhor,
with much care and love.
I don't exist more
living like a camphor..

Heart Roast

entry picture

Morning to night,
I can hear the sight of boast,
Morning to night,
I can feel my heart roast.
Your winks pinching me off and on,
I cant sit or stand,
You words sometimes set me ablaze,
I find myself in a deserted land.
Day and night
I am facing the same fight
In my dream you become the host,
And wake i smell the heart roast.
