Forgotten to dream

Day to day, the same mechanical steps,

Like the robots created by witchcraft

 It’s been a long time

Experiencing a heart touching bliss

Forgotten to dream

As commanded by someone

Closes… opens…


Framed this life in a narrow groove?

What I want

What I give to others

Who carved it on my forehead?

The same walls…the same people…

Needs… opportunisms

The limits are belittled

Around iron veils

Let me go somewhere

Where my heart responds firmly

Where love is preferred than body

Where a warm smile flows from lips to closed eyeballs

I will prove myself

Where I recognise my existence ..!!
