***** The Craving *****

Sometimes for sweets, sometimes for words,
The craving begins as a small itch that refuses to leave unheard.  

It stays within, clogged and heavy... swirling like a blocked chi with no vents...
While the mind continues to deal in mysterious ways, sometimes with brute force and at times, with pretense.

A scoop of caramel custard or a slice of lemon tart seduces the mind with its creamy flavours on one hand....
While a mug of hot choc or a slice of the decadent chocolate cake indulges in the tug of war unmanned!

But that is not what bothers a deviant mind the most....
For cravings are mere coping mechanisms the mind adopts to stall impending chaos...

While, the meandering thoughts continue to sprout new weeds of uncertainties in the head...
The rational mind struggles to bring the soul back with hope and faith & in good stead!

*** Envy - the arch nemesis ***

Disillusionment is powerful.

More is the anger towards life and fate...

As often man forgets... his purpose could have been different...

Whilst he spent his precious life burning in envy to cage the elusive fame...

But as luck would have it,
the butterfly called success flutters with no agenda of her own...


As she jumps from one man to another...
She cares little about what emotions feed a life, distraught and forlorn...

It is not the absence of success that breaketh a man...but loss of purpose...
When man measures his goals with the purpose of another soul....

He brings down the kingdom of hell on Earth...
With all its devious army of minions and ghouls...

Envy is a termite that devours life with utmost relish...
While the life continues to ponder.... "why did fate play unfair...?"

Forgetting that every man has to bear his cross designed for his spine....
The disturbed man continues to walk in circles not realizing - Truth bleeds regardless of who cares...

***** Empathy : A lost virtue *****

Posted by Narayani Karthik at 6:18 PM 5 comments

Empathy, the maiden virtue of all times...

The most sought after and least respected of all..

Its presence is neither acknowledged  nor celebrated...

But its absence brings down the world on its knees, with a mighty fall!

Did they say - Blood is thicker than water...??

And that, empathy is inevitable when blood is a connection...??

Just then, exceptions come along to render blood worthless...

And that, blood is nothing but a coloured water, a wasted sentiment...a useless emotion...!

As self wonders, what kind of apathy must eat a man of the above kind?

Who measures his connections based on status, money and clout?

That he cleaves off connections he was born with....

With absolutely no pain or remorse?

Humble beginnings are underrated always...

For none wants to acknowledge the roots...

But time is such a wheel of whim...

When the call comes, it brings one down on his boots!

Currencies, clouts and shallow connections are passing  clouds of dew...

That feel good and soothing for a while until the weather changes its moods...

Never turn your face away from your roots, is what ancestors whisper each day...

For roots is what shall hold you firm through tides and storms, come what may!
