Disguise

I wait to call bluff on her nonchalance, smeared like a disguise in her chaotic charm

Confetti

Sadly, often our actions are nothing but a collection of should or shouldn’t have done thoughts

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

By, Shantanu Baruah

Elide - Omit
Abjure - Renuounce
Paean - song of praise
Farrago - hotchpotch
Ignominies - Shame
Deification - Worship
Servile - Please others
Vitiate - Spoil
Ostensible - appears to be true

Hope

My thoughts, though amorphous, never fail to show me the shadows of abstract love smeared across the alfresco of tomorrow

Abstract

Often time what eludes us is not happiness but its amorphous definition

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

By, Shantanu Baruah

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
