I’ve been dwelling in this abyss, Unaccompanied and fragmented, Seclusion took away my gladness, And desolation became my friend. Save me from this ill- fated curse! Touch me and feel my hollowness, Wait until those philosophies surge, Don’t let them dissolve in the crest. Hold me tight and defy ambivalence! Carve what’s in … Continue reading A Pen’s Outcry
Not so long ago, in a faraway land, There lived a maiden named Lebana! She used to ramble with her magic wand, and turned every place into a nirvana. The country dwellers venerated this lady, Not for her beauty, nor her omnipotence, But for her noble doings and her purity, Silhouetted by the untouched … Continue reading The Lost Queen
Why should I write again? This clamor muddled my mind. What would I really gain? Retorts were still unkind. I have penned many ruminations, those scribbled and mundane. Some were merely imaginations, which could all make me insane. So I rummaged far and wide, But alas, no ripostes can be found. Obscurity never … Continue reading Lebana Speaks:Why Should I Write?

I then escaped from the realm of uncertainty, … Continue reading Lebana Speaks: Untold Poetry (A Sonnet)
What Shall I Write? (Sonnet IV) What shall I write in this world full of words? This question often muddles my cognizance. Long hours of discerning dissuades my moods. So, whisper me your thoughts even in a trance. Shall I write about the splendor of nature- Its fecund landscape and verdant vegetation? The lakes, rivers, … Continue reading What Shall I Write?
In a realm where pandemonium subsists, you intrepidly stand to provide armistice, blowing away the impenetrable mists, and embracing victory without a notice. In a vast territory where darkness prowls, you keenly arrive carrying your raging torch, spreading the light and mollifying the howls, driving humanity to the unbending porch. In a world … Continue reading A Poem for Bloggers
Sunday mollifies the dreary mind, from the past monotonous days. It permits the equable chasers find, the land of temperate rays. Sunday soothes the physique, from the week’s strenuous task. It unbends the infuriating oblique, and unveils its impenetrable mask. Sunday provides music to one’s soul, with its sweet and melodious cadence. It … Continue reading Sunday’s Sonnet
