Dreams within dreams

made life for him

a bubble in which

nothing was waxing and waning

It was a foolish task

to put any pretentious mask–   

to show he was one of the mass

No, he had a simple life

carried by his poetic lines  

something between the whiles–   

an evanescent, but constant state of his heart

It was in line with nothing but all his poems’ rhymes

The Centrifugal Tendency


A pent-up emotion was imprisoned in my heart

And I had a centrifugal tendency– 

to break the centripetal existence and escape the custody of My Being

But I was in the jail-yard of my individual attachments and relations in which I was enclosed

As if, it was a spurious mode of obtaining freedom

There was, in fact, no emancipation

And if it were, I could feel the dissipation and the deterioration of liberty–  

which was chained by the basic needs

I was so, till the sublime vision came–  

when I wrote poetry

Then, the gift of mere life sufficed my inspiration to feel free from any chain of heart
