Dreams, Poetry

One-way Stream

A place I long to seek

or it is just solace that I need;

A crusade between

dreams and reality

Oh, tell me how should I go about with it;

To trail along with reality

or stamp my feet through that unbeaten path

of darkness and forestry

or truth be told to none I know of what lies within;

One thing be sure it will be crazy, thrilling and nothing short of a reverie

a clear choice

as they snap and preach;

Yet there is never an easy one

when it comes to choices

of a one-way stream.

Fingertips

Laid in bed

a stone throw away from sleep

a mind full of figurative

saturated with hues and

bobbing glints

yet unknowingly caged in

were all of these;

and when she wandered off

into her supposedly eden setting

how untouched it was of riches or vanity

yet conspicuously coated of warm pink kinship

and piles of fable reads;

Oh what irony, for her utopia

was always just at her fingertips.

Stardust

Flipping through

her astronomy book

she casually murmured

“how much do stardusts weigh?”

not expecting an answer

to this inanity;

He peered at

the tall mirror

to their left

fingers along his chin

took a minute

before moving his lips;

“As light as air and

as heavy as meteorites”

It all depends

on what the person

infront of the mirror sees.

Caged

I sat in a cage;

When they came

and read to me

stories

of those

who wandered

beyond

these four edges;

Men who

reached for the stars

could fly high in the sky

and cross mountains of all heights;

So I lusted

for an adventure

out of these walls

day in

and out

I fought the bars

that held me in;

Believing that one day

I too

can be like those men

that they read

doing almost

unthinkable things;

Tears

and sweat

I shed

till one day

I see them

came back;

 with a silver key

hanging in one of

their pockets;

They sat

and read

the stories

of those

who conquered the beyond

not once touching the keys

dangling on;

Go out there and

you too can achieve wondrous things

they smiled

then left;

And I sat

baffled and disheartened

wondering what

should I do next.

(If it helps you to understand better, “They” refers to society.)
