Time flies, the clock ticks away

The seconds that were never meant to stay

Cuddling my pillow, I close my eyes

Pretending to be a dormant seed frozen in ice,

Waiting for the springs’s Sun to shine

So that I could sprout and bloom with the flowing time..

══════ ∘◦❁◦∘ ═══════

There are memories I want to erase

And dreams I’m yet to chase

Roles I’ll have to eventually play

And stages I have chosen slay.

Only if I could wake up from this dormancy

That has numbed me into a frozen sheet!

══════ ∘◦❁◦∘ ═══════

No! I can’t let this winter last forever

And I mustn’t wait for the spring to be nearer

The ice must melt from my inner fever

I’m my own fate’s weaver!

So, the pillow needs to be thrown away

My eyes have to be kept awake

For I’ve colorful dreams to chase

Before it gets far too late…

  1. That which is unbreakable and insoluble, and can neither be burned nor dried. That which is everlasting , omnipresent, immutable and immovable, eternally.. That is what powers one’s body and mind.. how can any ice in one’s mind survive the thaw that this realisation gives ..

    Brilliantly manifested and gloriously presented too.. kudos.
