The Purpose

Poem-Header-800x100-0001

With this site I will bring together various writings, quotes, and poems that interest me and that draw together the themes of my writing.  Rather than write in a conventional way I want to use this site to draw together all the themes of my writing into one full integrated whole.  It will be writing in it’s transparent rawness: at times incoherent how the threads hang together, at times flowing and fully formed.  Technology will aid it’s transparent form, which will also emerge with the writing.

DARK OVER HANGING CLOUDS

When life devours your very essence
Engulfed you stand in complete abeyance:
Paralysed the N’th degree.
To escape is where I want to be.

As cavernous and wondrous thoughts
Grapple to see where they ought
My mind seems seized and quite inert,
Everything just seems to hurt.

Are the circling vultures mirroring me
As around and around we go with glee.
These new experiences cause confusion
Is my learning becoming compulsion.

O’ to have your clarity of vision
And swoop on carrion, my only mission.
That one clear goal guides your thinking
As you pursue it without flinching.

Rest, sit and pause a while.
To much too soon can taste vile.
Gorged and bloody we think we are sly
But now neither of us can fly.

ONCE AGAIN

फिर कर बैठे खुद को मजबूर, दिल की जिद के सामने
फिर चले दर्द से यारी करने, फिर ग़म का दामन थामने

VIRAL IMAGES

Mysterious mind thoughts
Drifting across an inner landscape,
Motivated by emotions triggers,
Infect communities of ideas.

OUTSTANDING SELF-DELUSION

Expectations are the enemy of the brave:
Worrying about a future beyond control
Brings with it the burden of self-delusion.

Rating me against you fails the test
Human against human leads to war
Bringing with it mutual destruction

Outstanding people show only one trait
Humility about the possibilities of selfhood
Holding with it a loving distance called care.

LEFTOVER FEELINGS

कम हो जाती हैं, सोच कर तनहा दिल की सिसकियां
चाहे फ़ासले ही सही, कुछ तो बाकी है दरमियां
