Destination Nowhere

Destination Nowhere long poem

I read a book

it doesn’t seem to end

thousand pages I have read

and yet the end is nowhere near

characters keep appearing and vanishing

no apparent design no apparent destiny

sarcasm without wit

irony without intent

maybe I should finish this chapter

close the book and pick up another one

Perhaps I have to read this one

cover to cover

a trail of talking pictures

it seems like the soap opera

it never ends

new twists, new plots

new actors for old cliches

facts stranger than fiction

no sir, no truth here

just an unabashed indulgence

no shame, no remorse

take it or leave it

but leave it i can’t

the reels keep rolling

am glued to the spot

till end credits roll out

I witnessed death the other day

a giant came from behind my left

missed me by a few feet

carved an arc towards my right

mangling everything in its way

for a moment there was deafening silence

followed by a wail from a child

then the honking to get out of way

people rushing to destinations

destinations important than crushed humans

I stopped for a few moments

then continued on my course too

shaken but not stirred

The road to destination is wide & vague, Some get ahead, others lag behind, Other’s mission is to fail those ahead, Some find excuses to stay behind, Others are spectators, just watching the race, Others are oblivious to their status

Nowhere In Sight

Nowhere In Sight short poem

I will cross the twilight zone to meet you in zero space negating the fear. The mauled city strikes the dumb sky in unilateral war. Coming from a bleeding torso a scream agitates the dolls playing with pebbles. Flaming death

Going Nowhere short poem

On the blue icicles you were colliding with orbiting electrons naked legs on the rocking chair were expecting the visual words to spook for clairvoyance with the sun decline beyond borders my eyes are damp, I know the bottom was

Lost Destination

Lost Destination short poem

Lost Destination I peep through the window: they keep running with the mobiles humming warming up their frozen spirits till the last breath in them. They run every morning on the bank of the lake to be afar from the

Going Nowhere

Going Nowhere short poem

The nowhere road the nowhere road going for a very long walk down the nowhere road. What do I see, what do I see? Going for a very long walk down the nowhere road. Wild wild flowers, wild wild flowers,
