Crowded Room

The wretched racket of quiet

has entered this room

dancing mockingly at your gloom

I laugh back

for I am in love with solitude

little had they knew, I relish and catch-up

on conversations I started with myself

by clear water lagoons

they had forgotten

I passed many a moon

Still the dancers; erect ears

set on doom

I will tap on their shoulders

for a spin about my room

laughing playfully

they thought they could

grate my ears with

their crackling croon

of quiet performances

bowing down at my gloom.

Evil Septets

Evil Personal Dilemma

The personal dilemma again struck

With its roots finding way within the soul

It really does suck

When it creeps within, 

Loosening tears of confusion.

It laughs at the agony, its evil-

Really evil.

Evil Mind

My mind is again playing games;

With its prey, that is me.

I don’t know how to react-

I don’t know how to tackle-

The evil schemes against me;

By the mind

Which belongs to me.


Evil Gloom

Right from the back door,

Enters the new gloom.

With its shadow out of form-

It moves ahead

Bringing to some one’s life-

A  new evil doom;

The verdict of which is in itself a gloom.
