A Lie

Poem By Poornima Kanasen

Seems genuine but not,
Questions different facets of truth,
But the truth is hidden beneath all disputes,
Left unnoticed, unattended and unclaimed,
The truth remains dormant,

In a world where satisfaction can’t be pronounced,
It dominates, it abides, and it hovers,
Feelings aren’t valued anymore,
A whole lot lays barren, spiritless,
Nothing is mere, lucid or veritable,

A lie speaks for another,
A well intentioned untruth is still a lie,
A lie is a lie,
No such thing as little lie,
Can’t be straightened, can’t be taken back
The way you yell into a forest, the way it echoes out.
You square up for your misdemeanor,

In the throes of calamity, life’s forgotten,
Untruth, a lie, stays real,
Instead of solidity and life itself,
When a lie is entrusted to us, unbidden,
Witness the threadbare of humanity…

A lie camouflages the truth,
Yet, the practice doesn’t vanish,
As forbidden fruit is the sweetest….

If I Die Tonight....

If I die tonight,
Will you feel my lost?
Am I worth your tears?
Will my absence be felt?

A Journey....

A journey that never ends,
Yet, its own beginning is uncertain,
Uncertain it seems,
But it treasures almost everything,

I Am Not My Mistakes..

I am not my mistakes,
For I don’t pretend nor masquerade,
Comfort can’t be achieved in illusion,
Allow the reality to speak to you,

Faraway, Yet Dear To Me! !

Faraway, yet dear to me! ! !

Those lips, conceals love between,
Dreamy eyes escape into mine,

The Quest, Yet To Be Accomplished...

The mist,
Barely made my path visible,
Even if it did,
It couldn’t elucidate anything,
