Life Is A Railway Track

Life is a railway track. There’re trains moving swiftly, And trains moving sluggishly. On what seems to be An unending journey. Uncertain— Though the rails appear To meet near the horizon. But will they meet?   There’re platforms for stopping And reconsidering, But it’s all about moving. If you stop for too long, You’ll become one of the Goods trains, discarded. Standing on derelict tracks, Converting iron into its oxides.

(This poem is a tribute to Sir Alan Rickman)   I’ve been given this book Which seems not to end, No matter how many nights I spend. If I’m supposed to read it or write, I’m not very sure. I think, I should’ve asked this before.   There are lines in permanent ink, Then there are blanks for me, To fill with episodes of sorrow and glee. When will the

Solace For All

When the night descends, Descends over the luminous city. The city plunges deep, Deep into the dungeons of slumber. Of slumber which hides, Hides beneath the dismal eyes. Eyes which have lost their luster, seeking, Seeking that rebellious solace, Solace which is not meant for them. Of luster lost, Lost to the yearning for the beloved. Beloved who’ll never reciprocate. Lost to the longing for a morsel. Lost from the
