In the outskirts of fun and frolic
In the midst of alluring night life
I find mounds of grief
spilling over from untold stories
Impacting serene blessed space of divine
In the distant orchards of melancholy
I find unnerving stillness
That pierces through heart
Drifts me away from goal of spirituality
And I remain buoyant
In the sea of folly
I bury my cluelessness
In the alley of drooping silence
to be able to peep into nostalgic trail
hone my perception to remain away
from pale imitation of bliss.
I crave for soulful rhythm and rhyme
not just a place in space
but also in time
to boost my sagging morale
bloom as per ordain of Supreme.
