Myriad Of Dreams

Myriad of Dreams…


21st June 2010

           I returned from my office and threw my shirt on the floor. I was not in a mood to live the way I was living. With my brain forcing me towards a stable career and my heart mingled for the one I loved – creative writing. I felt myself like a tennis ball jumping over the net now and then. The track from ‘The Better Life’ called Kryptonite became a reality for me. Specially the line which said ‘I feel my body lying somewhere on the sands of time’ I think I spelt the name and the lyrics correct. My balcony faced the bridge they made over the river’s chest. The evening star sparkled as if it were laughing on me. Give me freedom…!

Myriads of dreams in my tired eyes…
   Millions of voices I listen all the time
The pace so slow and
   The dreams all swift…
Wanting and Wishing to leave all
   The shackles so rigid and the sorrows shallow
The belief I believed shook all the time…
   The rage all sunken; all mine
The traffic roars on the feeble bridge…
    As it crosses the shabby river…
The evening star I see so clear…
    Standing in my balcony gripped with fear
Someday I go motionless
     Someday I go directionless
Today I went a little ahead..
    With the translucent smoke in the air…
It’s all in the mind; Its all with the soul…
    The brain resisting and the heart beats all foul…!
