Awaken

When the blur evades 
and the mind wakes up to a beautiful dawn,

When a blessing
marks the moment of truth to reckon,

When nothing can drown you,
and no dreadful words can trounce you anymore

When the absence never bothers you,
and the longing of any unsaid words

When such clarity embraces you at-last,
you liberate,
a moment to treasure for a lifetime to then commence,
for the smiles then grace your visage,
and the world appears beautiful once more

Illusion

You can elide me from your thoughts, 
abjure my presence,
and aver your paean to some newfound zeal

You can expatiate your farrago emotions,
shield yourself ignominies under the veil of deification
and servile your oblivious world

You can do everything to prove your illusion
but how will you vitiate the spark of the ember
that glows relentless beneath your ostensible heart

Abjure - Renuounce
Paean - song of praise
Farrago - hotchpotch

Holding Hope

At the kink of your wayward words,
when you hesitantly display your tentative smile,
eluding the traces of that eroded love,
right there,
the residues of some patina thoughts
get scattered in the thin air of nothingness,
while everything stil remain blurry,
one thing that shall hold against the atrocities of any gale
is an incandescent flame
that screams in silence but firmly
about a possibility called “US

Kink - Bend
Patina - a green or brown oxidized film
Gale - A strong wind
Incandescent - Emitting Light

Honest Try

If you are trapped in a gossamer 
weaved by your miscreant mind
entwined in some unwarranted quagmire
if you remain asphyxiated
confined in some abysmal blind

If you are unsure at time what to do
anxieties caging you
leaving you frustrated without any clue

If your hope has diminished
and your life has become a dismal tale
and you feel entrapped
in a reel of gory thoughts
rising from some obnoxious hell

Despite such unruly times
I implore you not to give up just yet
I know it is hard to find me
for we are not together anymore
your heart may be hollow and our hands aren’t clinging like the times from the yore
but remember one thing and never let this thought die
that my love still remain like a cinder in my ethereal heart
and if all doors are closing on you
give my love another chance

What Shall Define you

Your virility is not marked by your dominance on the world, neither it shall veritable by anchoring your scepter with a loud thud, nor by any boisterous claim on how you own boudoirs spoken with an amorous tone, but shall be visible by your relentless consecrate on uplifting humanity, and through the care that you shall bestow

By, Shantanu Baruah 

Virility - manliness
Veritable - metaphor to intensify
Scepter - ornamental staff
Boudoirs - women’s bedroom
Amorous - lustful

Memories

Memories are obnoxious, for some it never fades, and for the same moments for others vanishes in a trice.

Indifferent Parable

The allegory from some hazy nightmare is bellowing silent screams of agony, but the disguised countenance has a different story to say.
