Untraceable Decays

Updated on July 24, 2012


Perishing in the hem of doubts

I search for answers unknown

Everything I touch becomes a question

The slightest of hopes are blown




Trapped amidst a silent sea

Unable to realize a passage

To unfold the scenes of ambiguity

I know no drug no dosage



A spiral path I walk around

A labyrinth an invincible maze

Standing twixt a handful of fellows

It’s loneliness that meets my gaze



Eluded emotion insane irritation

Form puzzles I’m unable to solve

The mist in my mind is double cross

It tends to linger, not dissolve



Smothered in husk is worthier

Than this diced state of peril

Unsinkable yet drowned by force

I lose, me myself the Devil

      You are a master of poetry my young friend. If this is about you, be strong and keep moving forward. If this is simply an expression of your talent, it is beautiful.

      Blessings and peace my friend.

      Hi Rahul,

      Deep and dark.

      "Perishing in the hem of doubts

      I search for answers unknown"

      Instead of searching for the answers let them come to you. The harder we try to figure out the answers the more frustrated we become. Perhaps, we are not meant not to know all the answers.

      Voted up and away

      Have a good day.

      I truly hope your physical pain has not brought you to this place. It can and does for some. Sometimes the treatment creates diabolical problems that outlast the physical pain. The poetry is beautiful, yet, not knowing makes it impossible to not worry. Very powerful words and images.

      Rahul,

      You made me reread my comment. I originally wrote blood. However, I changed it to tears because I did not want to frighten anyone. You wrote what I know you feel, yet it is healthy and healing and expressive and beautiful...I know you are growing stronger with each drop of ink that touches the paper, as are we by reading your words.

      Dear Rahul, your insight and comprehension of a condition you have just observed and not yet experienced in person, is absolutely amazing. You almost frighten me with this poem :(

      Writing is, of course, the best medicine, especially when you write fictive adventures.

      Take care, Rahul! Your granny is proud of you :)

      Rahul... you're an awesome poet. I really liked this peace. It was dark and gritty and kinda depressing! That's a good thing, trust me. The fact that you can evoke emotion from your pieces is the greatest of qualities. Also I see some uncertainty about the life one lives and the people one interacts with... it causes a great deal of distress and a flurry of thoughts that are somewhat uncontrollable. I feel like since we're the same age I can relate to this feeling... at least that's what I interpreted... am I right?

      Hello Aubrey !!

      I am humbled by your kind comment here.

      Life is indeed uncertain... and the moments it brings upon are more uncertain... If one says he can plan his life ahead... he can only do it on paper...

      Somewhere down the road of life there come moments ... sometimes prolonged when everything seems lost, untraceable.... and we are unable to find a path...

      but in the end... God will show us light... we will need our own senses to see it :)
