Before The Storm

I open my eyes, I remain silent.

The people around make noise and look violent.

Asking myself every second if I should hasten ?

The people make fun and wait for something to happen!

My mind says,”Run , take some hide”

“Hold on , fight back”, says my pride.

I listen to my pride and see the mocking crowd.

My ideal Chester, I will make him proud!

Love lost, frightened, the past bleeds through the iris.

But life’s true potential awaits some crisis.

And  the people Evoke ,”Why this silent form?”

Thats a proverbial lull before the strom! 



The New Year Rhapsody

Alone I stood wuthered by the wintry moon light,

Upon the old and shaky roof — undisturbed by day and night;

By the cold winds that make my limbs and spine shiver

But roof stays undisturbed through out the year!

And then, HE came, landing heavily on the roof

And the people made merry as if some miracle has come aloof,

But someone standing beside me deeply sighed…

Did I tell I was alone? May be I lied.

Soon after landing, HE went for the stairs.

Down my family cheered and sparked flared,

And welcomed HIM with such warm applause

For a moment I thought HE was the Santa Claus.

And people shouted HIS name, they said “New year has come!”

They bursted crackers, sang songs and drank fine rum !

Perhaps, the lady I love is somewhere down there…

Too indifferent to remember me, too far to see me standing here.

But who is this lady who stands beside me?

With her grey eyes, I wonder how she can see?

And her face was ragged and her voice would shake

Pretty she was, her hair scattered as a shipwreck.

She said , ” I am called  the previous year.

And I must leave to make HIS path clear!”

Something I learned when she was gone…

The toughest battles of life , you always fight alone!


Merry Chirtmas and Happy New Year to one and all.

On Last School Day

(Today we had our last school day… so with heavy heart , missing all those good old days I composed this short poem…)
The winter suddenly got more cold

Feeling alone, no one to hold

Am I the only one who says ?

“Gone are my old school days!”

The night will fade, day light will crack

Those good old days, they won’t come back

And so my soul regrets and says

“Give me back my old school days”

And yet what begun ought to end

Feelings, memories and emotions blend

With hope and faith we all day

“Tomorrow may be a better day”

Our eyes wet and faces swollen

Courage and strength, taught and spoken

Someone from nowhere suddenly says

“Coming are the better days!”


Mid-night Wilderness 

Mid-Night was an hour before

Asleep I lay in my bed,

When wild music woke me up

“Where am I? ” I said…

At first a thud on my roof —

Then dusteps, bass and dance

Where I am I wondered aloof

For I was in a trance

It seemed I was all alone:

For no one I could see,

Masked folks then entered the scene

Jokers broke free!

At first they all surrounded me

Then dusteps, bass and dance

Where I am I wondered aloof

For I was in a trance…

And when the pomp and show was on 

So lost I was, nothing seemed wrong

An earthly call woke up…

And my lively trance was gone

“Where are you ” someone asked

“Asleep you rolled and danced!”

Where I was I cannot tell 

For I was in a trance.

And Out

Indeed when the mind is conquered by anger, hatred and vengeance, we feel miserable. There is no point breeding any of these inside the mind. Once invaded by these so called demons the mind starts resembling hell. 
We like it when people call us brave, when people call us strong. But how often do we ask ourselves ,”Am I brave enough to fight the demons inside our mind.” 

Are we really brave enough to forgive true ones we hate.

Are we strong enough to supress our desires and follow the path of virtue.

So what do you do when you feel sad because people have not given you the same emotion or feelings that you have them.

Well if you know how it feels like to be betrayed,  you won’t betray anyone.

If you know how it feels when people hurt you, you won’t hurt anyone.

The one and only way to overcome your sadness is to make sure that no one else suffers from that same sadness.

Try it.

Believe me your sadness will vanish into thin air.

Into The Abyss 

This is a continuation of my previous post “The second battle of animo“. To visit click on the link.

And down I fell 

In the face of hell

Waiting for the devil to ring my knell

Scared and shocked

Scornful and mocked

In the face of hell

Down I fell

Waiting for the devil to ring my knell

Demons every where 

Thundered and glared

But they seemed familiar

As at there faces I stared

In the bottom of hell

So down I fell

Waiting for the devil to ring my knell

I have faced you before

Your faces are ugly and sore

As you stand in a queue

Oh the demons of hell

So tell me who are you

So down have I fell

Waiting for the devil to ring my knell

And dumb stood I

Wishing all this to be a lie

As the demons said

We are so and so 

And we live under your bed

And alone in hell

My fate with me fell

Waiting for the devil to ring my knell

One said I am anger

And here I linger

I rule your mind

I make you blind

So welcome to hell

For down you have fell

Now wait for the devil to ring your knell

One said I am vengeance 

For the soul a penance

For a fool a dream

For the wise a scream

I am the gateway to hell

Now that down you have fell

Wait for the devil to ring your knell

Call me lust

Said another

And I am a must

I am your brother

And a tout in hell 

And your life will I sell 

Just wait for the devil to ring your knell

So in the chamber of hell 

So down have I fell

I must wait for the devil to ring my knell.

The 2nd battle of Animo

This is post is somehow related to a previous blog post. If you haven’t read that then you might give it a try….to visit click on the link given below…the battle of animo

I have a habit of over thinking. In fact I am very nostalgic. I like changes in my life but I am so dumb that I keep dreaming about the past ,thinking about the alternate realities that might have existed.

Sometimes I believe I am just a drama queen. Well I don’t think that’s bad. There are people who think life is meaningless and spend there lives in a silly irony, there are people who slaughter mankind in the name of religion, I mean terrorists and similarly there are people who love to dramatize any situation and can go to any extent to do so. Well I am one such dramatic people.

However that day as I walked into the Bank Colony- a place where I had spent the whole of my childhood- I was put in a trance. I have been to trances before but never have pushed my mental abilities to such an extent.

When I left bank colony I was 14. My life had gone through a major change. The world seemed to have changed. Pressure of studies, more tuitions, moving to a new place, new friends, changes in my body and what startled me the most was a strange desire for the opposite gender. Things went on like this. Then began my days of love. Pondered one whole year in the false belief that when someone says ,” I love u” they really mean to stay faithful and committed. But after an year when THINGS were over I suddenly found myself stuck between my ego , my desires , my sense of irony and of course academic pressure.

But that day the tables turned. As I walked in the place I had left years ago I could see those two worlds clashing.

The world I had left behind and the world in which I live now. I remember how happy I was back in those days that world which nourished me all about my childhood. But this new world…what has it given me apart from sorrows and regrets and blames?

So the worlds clashed. Deafening loud noise was produced. Sparks scattered. Flames everywhere. The ground cracked. Strange demons flew out from the ABYSS . 

The fall has indeed began…

It’s time I fall… down ….even below the hell..

Indeed the fall has come.
