Liberosis

A desperate yearning
spilling out of the hides,
To plunge into the voids
And care less about things
To liberate this heart of aches
And the mind of faces.

These chain of thoughts
That refuse to stop-
Scream back and forth.
Though the lips stay silent
And no words dare escape
Even in the madness.

This burden of sanity
Weighs heavy on life-
becoming the curse of my kind.
Bound by cords of crimson
which cannot be broken,
Alas, stay stifled in silence.

These walls grow higher
and the lights get dimmer
but holding onto that glimmer
Hoping for a miracle
just a push to tumble forward
Into a world of new hassles.

why?

Why is white called just as beauty
and black as “black beauty”?
Why is it hot and sexy
and not bold and free?
even in this age and times
these unbroken stereotypes!

Why is a woman asked to be safe
and not to be strong and brave?
Why is a man asked to be tough
and not to be kind to one self ?
even in this age and times
these despicable advice!

Why push him to be the MAN
and not her to be the WOMAN?
Why tell him you can’t cry
and ask her to only cry?
even in this age and times
these disheartening bias!

Why is it all about wealth
and not about mental health?
Why is it just to reap gains
and not about saving lives?
even in this age and times
these heinous crimes!

Why?


Hide and Seek

How much we loved playing
hiding and seeking those evenings
no seeker could find us
no hidden could escape us
oh those innocent days!

And I am still playing with life
hiding and searching each night
not wanting to be seen
not wanting to even seek
oh these guileful ways!

All these chaos in my head
seeking a constant companion
hidden from one and all
eyeing strangers in crowds
oh such restless days!

What a twisted tale is this
this game of staying alive
is it concealed from me?
is it a quest for me?
oh these baffling ways!

Do not label me.

unsung words

Are you an atheist?

Are you a believer?

Are you a feminist?
No.
Are you judgmental?
No.
Are you so damn open minded?
No.
They asked me bewildered,
what are you then?
Which box of people do you fit in?
I said, None, I am not to be labeled!
I am just a human and not a thing!
And would like to remain human,
So DO NOT LABEL ME world!
For I am free of your cages
and your box of rages,
do not fit me into them
your stereotypes and glasses!
So, DON’T LABEL ME WORLD.
As I don’t want your suggestions
Please not even your opinions
And I won’t throw mine at you
But you do for all you disapprove!
So DON’T LABEL ME WORLD.
As I can think for myself
And not need your heads
Please look into yourself
And not into others dens!

The bygones

unsung words

The moments of utmost joy
Expires like a presto
You drink in the merriment
As the laughter crinkles facets

You stand alone in a corner
Looking for the lost moments
Which was just out there
And begone the next breathe

You walk mislaid in crowds
Fading in and out of bounds
Searching in vain for known
A familiar face still unknown

You touched those minutes
Slipping through the fingers
Grasping for a piece of sparkle
For making it last a bit longer.

You sigh, a sign you are alive
Closing the eyes for blind sights
Embracing the life for now is right
Let bygones be bygones tonight.

Found you

You fascinated me, cloaked in the shadows of secrecy
I ventured carefully, afraid of what you will think I will be.
I tried turning around but you pulled me back into your soul
You plunged into my abyss, a shining ray of light unfold.
I am still scared to let you see me in plight
Terrified if you will avert your eyes
My broken pieces as shattered they lie
You went through more anguish but got up every time.
I edged closer
Wrong as it maybe, love wrapped tighter
I got drawn into your smile that got brighter
You took my wrath of sadness deeply buried
Made me laugh louder, my eyes radiant
I found you where I lost myself valiant.

Do not label me.

Are you an atheist?
No.
Are you a believer?
No.

No.
Are you judgmental?
No.

No.

and your box of rages,

But you do for all you disapprove!
So DON’T LABEL ME WORLD.
As I can think for myself
And not need your heads
Please look into yourself
And not into others dens!
So DON’T LABEL ME WORLD.
As I don’t fit your measurements
For I stand on my own terms
And you can’t bear my indifference
For I stand beyond your barriers.
So, DO. NOT.LABEL.ME.WORLD.

One of those days -3

Where are we headed? To race on or to collide? Where? When? Why? The questions that haunt each one of us. I keep having one of these days, where I am questioning so much without any answers. Once in a while I sit in that corner and stare at nothing, sometimes tears roll out of my lost eyes, sometimes it’s just the clock ticking past me, seconds, minutes, hours, just fly.

I am not writing because I have got the answers, I am still questioning relentlessly. But I am writing because I have realized that we will keep questioning ourselves at each step of our life until we reach a place we aimed for. Then we aim for something else and the process repeats. The time in between, the journey which is supposed to be enjoyed burdens us sometimes, it seems so slow that we feel like it’s never going to reach the end.

Even after going through the feeling over and over I can’t seem to learn that things do fall into place. And I know for sure, there are more of you out there like me. So, let’s just keep hanging in there, eventhough unsteadily, let’s be relentless and perseverant, for all we want.
