Stagnant Sea


A slow death you die
When to yourself you lie
Day by day you begin to lose
By wrong priorities you choose

Time slips away like sand
From your sweaty hand 
Regret becomes your consort
With to-do lists left to sort

You stay awake all night
Pondering how to get alright
A stupor strangles your day 
Keeping all calmness at bay 

Waves of worry wash ashore
As you struggle to do a chore
Every moment is a torment 
Every act becomes a lament

An Ode to Running

Running helps me clear my mind
From the chaotic clutter of daily grind

It takes me towards a better state
Devoid of any regret, grief or hate

It shows me the pleasures in pain
Like the desert's unexpected rain

It silences the questions and doubts
Emerging in my mind's whereabouts

It teleports me to a heaven of hope
Where inspiration is the only dope

It frees from the cage of comfort zone
With a zingy zest to have my body hone

It fills me with a sense of satisfaction
To my wandering life, it adds traction

It provides me with means to defeat
All the ambrosia that I eternally eat

It gives me a kaleidoscope for seeing
One of the prime purposes of my being.

Soothing Solitude



Loneliness
quiet, empty 
boring, terrifying, torturing
dreadful, desolate, desirable, delectable
satisfying, tantalizing, soothing
silent, complete
Solitude



Written for OctoPoWriMo Day 6 prompt -  Tantalizing

This is in the Diamante form.

When I look into your eyes


I ponder all night
So everything's right
I wonder all day
What words to say
To you.

When I look into yours  eyes
All my fear and worry dies
Words flow like a waterfall
I blurt out my feelings all
My hears leaps out a mile
As you agree with a smile.

an oasis of ecstasy
in deserts of time

(ii)
Memories flow
    From rivers of remembrance
   To seas of forgetfulness


(iii)
Free your words
Board an express
To free your life

The Haunting Number

No matter where I go
No matter what I do
I see it everywhere 

In my favourite TV series 
On my social network feeds
It slips in  with utter ease
Irking me like watermelon seeds

On billboards in big malls
On discounts in e-commerce sites
Dragging me into lost memory halls
It always falls into my sight.

In issues creeping up in office reports
In default settings of eBook readers
Sending my thoughts on swift teleports
...

In high scores of games I play 
In a great mathematicians puzzle
On my watch every night and day
Warping me into a nostalgic hustle

On the stats of my fitness trackers
On prices of books I wish to buy
Bursting up my thoughts like firecrackers
And lighting up my mind's sky

--- To Be Concluded later --

Plans for Afterlife

When I die

I will eternally fly

across the enigmatic sky

a comet I shall be

all the cosmos I shall see.
