Numb…

Frozen,
all my emotions..
Frozen,
All my thoughts
Yes, I am numb,
To this pain I succumb

Cold, Cold as ice,
burning inside,
Calm deceptively,
There is storm in waiting,
Hidden, It wont subside

Tired I am,
Tired of ever-present lies,
Tired,
Of the over bright smiles,
Tremulous and fragile
Tired,
Of the variegated guiles!

Is it too hard to see
What lies underneath
disguises multi-fold?
Or are we afraid,
Of the face of Naked truth?
Whom do we really cheat?

Ceaseless,
Web of despair,
Ceaseless,
Resentment and guilt
Restless
As the dream flowers wilt
and yet I, unaware

Hollowed within,
Shallowed without
I wait to thaw
Numb numb I am

Lost in the bedlam

  1. “Is it too hard to see

    disguises multi-fold?
    Or are we afraid,
    Of the face of Naked truth?
    Whom do we really cheat?” – this pricks the conscience hard and painfully. If only we knew these lines say. Reverence – my response.

    “Hollowed within,

    Lost in the bedlam” – lovely! I like your reptition of words in some lines like “numb” here. Gives a dramatic effect!
