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 …

Words of the Fallen …

I am the prisoner of my indolence.

I am the prisoner of my inability.

The stoic in me can never express.

I am the prisoner of my velleity!

 

I have been too timorous.

I have been too shy.

It haunts me thinking that,

That much I never really tried!

 

Perseverance is bliss!

Sadly I am oblivious to it!

The dreamer in me is paralyzed:-

Giving up at the first sign of defeat!

 

Shelved in my own grave,

I am the dead man alive!

Wills eroded, emotions dried up;

I am a lost soul, grayed and naive!
