Deciphering this Enigmatic Life

The listlessness, 
the emptiness,
the yearning,
the longing,
often we are crowded in such emotional turmoil without being able to comprehend why?

Why do we long to meet someone?
Why do we fall in love with people who we know will only give pain?
Why are we nostalgic about the past that is engraved deep in our hearts?
Why do certain places keep reappearing in our conscious mind, making us restless all the while?

The answers to all the whys are hidden in the depth of our souls.

When we don’t learn to be content with what life has bestowed us.
When we blind our soul with an imaginary beauty that pretentiously shimmers a tad more than what we possess.
When we fail to look within ourselves.
When we yearn in the past and remain anxious for the future.
When we don’t accept the moments, which is here and now.

Then it leads our mind to unattainable desires, making us perturb and anxious.

Let us shed away all such illusions and enjoy every moment of this beautiful thing called life.

Reflection

Desires are curtailed when heart surrenders to the pretentious rationale put forth by an overthinking mind

A Diwali Wish

The pewter skies 
though draped in grayness
without giving any sign of thinning
stirring anxieties within you
is transient

And how long the darkness will last
is leaning on how you conjure hope
and nurture belief

May the festival of light
shed away all the shadow of doubts,
let the light within you glow with an ambient spark
and may your perturbation fades away
Levitating your shining soul
in every moment of your life

Turmoil

If I can conjure enough willpower, 
muster enough courage,
to drive her thoughts away
from my mind
that infests within me
like some Corinthian dreams,
echoing from a distance,
ricocheting the past reminiscence,
with a constant hum
that refuses to subside

And even if I succeed
in driving her thoughts away
from my mind
by cajoling and pleading,
will I ever be able to
shed her off,
from my bleeding heart?

Dreams


There are so many dreams that I see with open eyes,
and as I dwell deeper in my thoughts
drawing on my mind the art of possibilities ,
the emotions fills me to the brim,
the heart seeks
and the eyes dazzle with a smile.

The oneness that we both desire,
you with a bit of skepticism
and I with the surging rage,
though contrasting
yet has so many hues to cherish in disguise

Love needs Aberrant eyes

Not every feeling has to be weaved in verses or proses, nor the restlessness we feel inside needs a label, for at times we need to feel it in the depth of our soul

Hope robbed

The emotions fades away, the deepest feelings erodes, the desires often subdues, when the person you love robs your hope
