Air seems to be receding in

A spiraling wave seems to be a tornado

A tornado delving in,

Magnetizing the zillions of droplets,

Marbles that carry molten bits of emotions,

Extracting from the hidden and shady edges the shattered marbles,

And the thinning form of soul fillings assimilate,

Forming a legion,

Revolving in a tightly wound Chakravyuha

Each emotion love, anger, greed

Fear, passion,

Form concentric circles,

Circles that revolves continuously and simultaneously,

At the center revolves our conscious,

Each element that enters this ring,

Quite possibly succumbs to the gravity of the magnetized molecules,

 A soldier with a razor sharp will Iron clad,

A constant belief in the existence of real element trapped in illusions,

Slashes through multitude of alluring decoys,

At each victory another challenge succeeding the past one,

A serenity settling down upon his being as he drew closer to the “I”

A Chakravyuha’s intellect, tact and overwhelming strength defeated, but intact.

Awaiting the entry of another such soldier,

While keeping all those trapped, hypnotized in an endless trance.


P.S- I am guessing the word Chakravyuha to be a sanskirit term, I heard of it when I started reading and watching Mahabharatha. Chakravyuha is more of military tactic used then. However I have used it as a psychological imagery.

I am just including a link and also a excerpt from a blog post which explains more about it.

It was a physical formation which caused devastation due to its strategic and military superiority as well as its psychological impact. Fighting the Chakravyuha can be mentally damaging, but it was a combination of a deadly formation and its corresponding psychological effect that escalated Chakravyuha to its mythical level. Placement of key warriors in strategic locations could cause mental stress for incoming force significantly. The knowledge of getting trapped inside due to the rotating nature of each layer can demoralize any warrior. 
Thus, one thing is confirmed, that irrespective of its physical formation; the psychological impact of Chakravyuha was huge. Hence mostly it is understood that Chakravyuha was a deadly formation which could kill too many people in a very short span of time, and its psychological impact was extreme.
