Food for Thought

keeps on continually trying to cleanse itself."

EDITOR’S DESK

The past stood witness to my present uncertainty while future was evasive. And it is this uncertainty of the present and the evasiveness of times to come that gives birth to poetry and poetic words. The standstill time stays put, the moment doesn’t pass, yet the day is gone. In gathering these moments the life is gone. What gives us a reason to wrap up these bits into one whole is our dreams, the reason to live. Dreams, even while staying silent, speak volumes. Give words to your dreams and they come alive!

Turning the pages of life I find some words half-baked, some half-erased, others half-written. I choose to tell those tales now.
I too have grumbled at bitter loss, have experienced the pain of being a lost winner, my eyes have had tear behind laughter and lips trying to hide pangs of pain. Yet I always believe one should hold on and keep trying to string the fallen beads. In the end, the story of what has been will connect to what will be, though the moorings of the past will never be snapped!

HAPPY READING…AND LET YOUR MINDS BE FULL OF THOUGHTS AND PENS OVERFLOWING WITH WORDS…AMEN!

‘Masks People Wear’: Divyakshi

masks people wear

A beautiful lie

A hurtful truth

A bitter smile

A fake tear

A deceitful confession

A pretentious obsession

You are unaware

Of the masks people wear

 

A brilliant show of goodness

Malignant thoughts

An insincere prayer

Nonchalant care

The truth does scare

the masks people wear

 

Innocent face.

Intentions amaze.

The one who hurts tries to mend

An enemy in the guise of a friend

You stand.. unaware

Of the masks people wear.

 

Cheatful love.

False words.

Celebrating a win.

Jealous within.

sugar outside.

Spite inside.

You thought its care..

*Sigh*! The masks people wear!

 

Tumbles one day the pack of lies

Enlightened you realise.

The beautiful picture is morphed..

People don’t change their masks come off.

‘Detachment’: Avinash Dev

detachment-quotes-7

It’s not easy for me to put the genteel screen between us in the name of conduct,

And it kills to behave sane in the wilderness of my love and lust for you

 

Neither is it easy to hold back from tasting those lips which I always wanted to quench my thirst

And near to impossible to stay afloat in those deep eyes of yours that draws me in like a whirlpool

 

The eternal fire of love could only be allayed in your bosoms

For the savage in me does not understand the ways of the civilized

 

Your heat would what can alleviate my fervor and nerves could be cooled when feeling the wetness

Music of your heart is what my ears seek in a world where theres only You and I

 

Your ear lobes between my lips while we struggle to find our feet

You over me and I over you, fight for who over the top ceases to stop

 

Take me in and keep me there for I sense heaven

Feel my passion tremors and relieve me from this prison

 

That’s the mind of the barbarian, who does not see the educated ways

Distance yourself before the devil takes over

 

In his world there are no strings attached

Better for you if you stay detached

‘Being Human’: Avinash Dev

being-human-is-given-but-keeping-our-humanity-is-a-choice-humanity-quotes

Where did we falter my dear
Where did things go awry

What is that we did do that we are here
What is that we did not do that fate took over

Whom to blame for all this mess
Just wondering if there’s a way out of this.

If only I can undo the changes going back in time
And fix those things that went wrong,

Do I think that we can be together,
and regain the eternity that is gone for ever

Alas I am just human, tuned only to move with time
No way I see to pull it back and set things in line.
