Deck of Cards

Today turns out is my blog’s two year anniversary. Yes two years, I started the blog when I was still in college.:)

It was a nice surprise to open my blog today and find the notification.

Just a poem from by subconscious which rose to the surface today..:)

Deck of Cards

An uneven bed of rough pebbles stacked at the bottom,

Stray thorns from dried up moments adorn it,

Tears no more nourish the roots; the roots have sunk below the bed into abyss,

Yet each breath that rushes grazing the heated uneven surface,

Stutters through the being, it struggles to keep the soul alive,

Thorns pricking at the flesh, keep the wounds from healing, seeping blood now and then,

But now the walls are numb, aching breath is only silent breeze,


 Passing moments shuffle the deck of cards,

Some moments lost in a gamble, some moments shadowed by the dark joker,

The loss’s price the soul must pay, yet the pain of it sinks into the abyss brushing the numb walls,

Somewhere the mind knows numbness is the refuge, it dread’s the intensity of the sensations,

Lest the soul is lost in them, drowning and dusking its purpose for existence,

 Hence it says, let the pain go beyond, let it rot and decay into a mere flecks of almost nothingness,


Now, I see a strange eyes peeking through, are they seeing me or have I been stranded by their aura,

Eyes of my other self, also the eyes of another, my enticer,

Do I edge closer to those beings just to breathe their fragrance, do I take the gamble,

There ain’t anything to lose says the mind, after one has to play till the last set,

No matter what, the end is inevitable, let’s live a life as blasphemously as the soul desires,

Let the raw you surface and blast through your wall of dread,

Clutch your dreams and rise above yourself and the shallow reality,

Let your other self shuffle the deck of cards, blow away the shadows of arriving moments,

Indulge yourself drugged in this one, playing to live the life of a free being.
