NUMB

Amidst a flurry of thoughts
Sometimes
Numbness feels so close

In windy deserts
Some days
Only stillness blows

Through gushing rivers
Somewhere
A transparent silence flows

Like the ever increasing entropy is
in some way
the order of the universe

a continuation?
(i hope u dont mind)
***
butterflies scream in the garden of life,
and by the banks of the frozen stream,
beauty goes to sleep.

the eyes in the mirror look down,
and the ugly face,
suddenly resembles my own.

good to see something on this page at last.happy new year.

lovely poem Sadia.
Were it slightly longer it could be put to music and sung...great words indeed.
Keep writing.

na jaane kis liye ummeed-vaar baiThe haiN, ek aisi raah pe, jo teri rah-guzar bhi nahiN...kahan hain aap?

The Illusionist said...

sandeip: doesn't feel like a continuation but the mood is same and its nice :)

siyaah: yes comfortable indeed but the comfort of it is now causing discomfort.. weird creatures we humans, Don't seem to have comfort anywhere :)

Max: I'm glad you like dit. perhaps a really happy time for me would be when i could play the guitar to a song written by me and may be attempt to even sing it badly :)

Kumail: rahguzar to yehi hai... kuch dino.n se jaan boojh kar raasta bhoolne ka man kar raha hai :)

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
