Burning Bridges

 

 

 

Bury the long dead past let bridges burn behind 

Bounty what life holds be cherished full in kind

Nothing stays forever in  rapid passing of time 

There still be choices to relive your lost prime.

At the end somewhere will be a beckoning light 

Ridding built up solitude to future  shining bright

Changing Paths

Path deemed distinctive

in reality turned opposed

 

Odds proved enormous

from humanly supposed

 

All possible had a shot at

for unviable to come true

 

Now logic takes primacy

to ditch all on a good cue

Tribulation

If living for subsisting

or existing to survive

 

Purpose stays elusive

any sense can’t derive

 

Going about in vortex

moving at  rapid pace

 

No time for indulgence

in own personal space

 

Stuck in same tedium

since been on to avoid

 

On face near amiable

In inferred conspiracy

Looking over the shoulder

wasn’t so long ago in past

 

With hoards of aspirations

and prospects spread vast

 

Near lifetime since elapsed

never took stock to assess 

 

All dished if in conjunction

or dealt out somewhat less

 

Known paths earlier chosen

how divergent turned about

One of Those Days

 

Trying hardest to dispel

but the feel’s returned

 

Perfect thought utopia

has tables since turned

 

Back at a very juncture

bit uncanny and unsure

 

Strong urge to move on

for an  enigmatic allure

 

Environs are inhibiting

lackluster same routine

 

Needs ditching tedium

& explore vistas pristine

Riding a Tiger

On face a sham normalcy

the core filled with dread

 

At a very cusp of no return

can’t help but forge ahead

 

 All deemed plain pushover

how it ended up otherwise 

 

None other there to fault

since caught in own devise

 

Those efforts painstaking

 a well thought over intent

 

Ended in such an imbroglio

that no one could prevent

Overcoming Fear

-Caught in vague phobias

of all future may present

 

Riddled with ambiguity

 it might never represent

 

A fear of ensuing failure

 logic gets to wear a veil

 

Inhibiting valid outcome

it otherwise would entail

 

Unless strange tried out

not known if be achieved

 

Nothing stays impossible

The Ride

Old sense of exhilaration

for the spirit to soar free

 

To be one with elements

on an aimless kind spree

 

No destination so to say

nothing planned as such

 

Tad touch of spontaneity

& escapade a sole crutch

 

Legs straddling untamed

not broken in yet mount

 

Uncertain of the outcome

and what it’ll tantamount

 

Timidity all but vanished

Puppets on Strings

 

 

 

 

 

 

None our own devices

in any scheme of things

 

We all are but nothing

than puppets on strings

 

With advent designed

for a set time on stage

 

All expectedly ordained

impossible to rearrange

 

Often get manipulated

and to probable comply

Evaluation

As much try shaking off

On face seems normalcy

  deep within I’m paranoid

 

All evident brave fronts

and donned blasé guise

 

Reflect chinks in armor

of societal compromise

 

Frayed old compulsions

often daunt and afflict

 

Daubed in hues darker

sane rationality restrict

 

Old emotional stockpile

Fazed but withstanding

Stretched to the optimum

Reality proves daunting

Rigidity seldom sustains

Each time tried resurfacing

in a new vortex got caught

 

Adding on presented misery

to existing scene distraught

 

Tired of repetitive challenges

Little placidity is yearned for

The Cortege

Lived life being damned

in death getting adored

 

Extolled to extremities

in past all but abhorred

 

 Dwelled in deprivation

in livery being adorned

absence now’s mourned

 

May the dear departed

Lo and behold that feeling

To tease test and torment

dead past willfully spurned

Beset current despondency

goads me again to express

 

Reason for disenchantment

and issues crucial  address

April Rain

Welcome overcast sky

from incessant heat

 

Drizzle gently falling

on freshly wet street

 

Feel is overwhelming

for indolence to set

 

With drop in mercury

Odd for time of year

Time to sever all alliances

shades dark which depict

 

No purpose those serve

Staring out of window

admiring nature’s awe

 

Picture full of perfection

sans single evident flaw

 

 Indolent tepid sunshine

As if time has stood still

Living known paradigm fortunately unfortunate

With all dished copiously yet with an empty  plate

 

With situations definitive I am unable to equate

How the twist of events

Striking at susceptibility

At core of it all is yearning

to someone similar belong

 

Another there to relate to

and walk  distances along

 

Bond in sort of perpetuity
