A LULLABY TO MY OWN SELF

A LULLABY TO MY OWN SELF

‘rishi’



  A feeling unknown-
weighing me down….
What is it
Way beyond the mist….

I drift along
through nameless pangs
in these very moments
leaving no trace
yet having grace and force
Proving the very source
of all that is our being

Language proving
ineffective
to pinpoint the pricking spots
nor ease the ache therein…..

Words unwritten
Poems escaping the pen
Minutes slipping through
The fingers failing to grip
Sleep overpowering
the lust to keep awake….
For my own sake….

Just give and take
what …. not…. this… that
What’s up
who asks whom
Ma’m, Sir, Hon’ble,
May you  all be able
to wade through these endless wanderings
Windows are or is
just a capital W decides
so is Mouse, you see
Sea is sea, near or far
Shore is there;
So fares Nature.

 Secret-cameras mushroom
in dressing-rooms
bathrooms
courtrooms
bridegrooms
brooms
there zooms
the tip of a gun
targeting you me everyone.

Get up
Go to sleep
No time to sup or weep
True, between the cup and the lip
Lies a chasm so deep.

Moon unseen
Song unheard
Death not defied
Sensitivities defiled
Mystery shrouding
I move on
A feeling unknown
weighing me down
