Memories of Farewell Songs

Memories of farewell songs

Pour down like gentle rain.

Wash off our sins and wrongs

And make us what we were again!

**

Be a bit more than frivolous nostalgia

Stuck in this vicissitude of life: –

We don’t have our visions clear

Gasping for breath in this hopeless strife!

**

Those days when we sang with no fear,

The iron resolves we wore as crowns-

Now like fallen kings in disarray so sheer,

We’re going down in leaps and bounds !

**

In the sea of broken glass

We stand bloodied to the core.

Doomed in the abyss of hell,

We’re so very far from shore.

**

And tears trickle down our eyes

As the songs hit our senses

The ones we sang while we bid goodbye

Hoping to make it big immense!

**

In the race to the pinnacle

We so lost our way!

What we set out to achieve

Never saw the light of the day!

**

And as we walk down the memory lane

We brush the dust from our suits so grey …

Still we raise a toast to our glory days again,

We live to fight another day!

Stuck

The blank page,

Looming large in front of me,

Stares at my hopeless face

Helplessly transfixed

In a never-ending baffle

Quivering in the air

In harmony with my

Arrhythmic heartbeats!

The fluttering sound

Aggravates my desperation

As I try again

Perhaps in vain

For a break-through

For the thousandth time

Silently

With an air of nonchalance

And a pen in my hand

While a storm rages inside

Destroying my pride,

My achievements,

My self-assurance!

Not even few shoddy lines,

Not even a word!

Am I done for life?

I ask myself,

As I close my eyes

And I scream and I scream

Again and again

Till my lungs explode

 I gasp for breath

And my body goes numb!

With cold eyes

I stare back at the blank page

And let the truth sink in –

Paralyzed and trapped

I wait … oh I so wait

For this feeling to pass

And these shackles to break

If at all …

If at all …

Reality or Pessimism? … or maybe just a Simple Realization!

There are times when I close my eyes and think

Feels like I’m staring at my shadow without a blink.

Lost in its emptiness profound

As in my fears I get drowned!

All the thoughts that plague my inner self-

What have I done with my life … oh please tell!

Did I dare to dream or did my feet tremble

Or was I wrapped in my own world like a frog in the well!

Unaware of the truth that drives the world.

The truth that brave-hearts in their lives unfurl.

The truth that’s evergreen like a drop of dew:-

The one that says – chase your dreams till they come true!

 

In this life that never seemed to be of any good!

The violence that ravaged my dear childhood.

Setbacks were too many to stand on my two feet.

An agonizing lot I did try, I really did.

Nothing is good enough when the glory seems light years away!

The silent routine of trying hard and waiting for my day.

And as failure decayed the hopes of rejuvenation

The mind played games over this hopeless situation

Weakening me to the core as I fell on my face

Am I a loser, a no-good, a disgrace?

It was that moment when I couldn’t but rue

No matter how much you chase, some dreams don’t come true!
