Quote of the day

“Who would you be, if you would not be what you wanted to be? You would be you, yet not entirely you, accepted by others but never by yourself.” – Momus Najmi

A place to call home

The world that flies on its own, without the wings, of ancient shrines, The world that caters its own, and feed not the militia, of a madman, The world that seeks to understand, and deny none the lore, is the place I call home, But for fame and fortune, can help me find not, and…

Quote of the day

“It will all come to an end, with a crash and a bang or a whisper. But before that there has to be a start – do not meet your end before you begin something.” Momus Najmi

The feel of my feel

I have waited, the eternity of time, to feel how I now feel, and now that I have, found myself, In the midst of such a feeling, I begin to wonder, if sharing would diminish, its grip on me.

Till the end consumes it all

I had a feeling, this was going to happen, at some point, a moment of fate’s choosing, when you would come up to me, and ask me to be, someone you have always wanted me to be, but I also had a feeling, that I would resist, any notion of being myself, a self that…

Ambiguous God

Follow me, to a place, unknown, to do a thing, never before known, do not ask me what, and do not ask me how, my godliness lies, in the ambiguity of it all.

I do not know

I do not know, whether to care or not to, about you, or about me, or about the world we live in, I do not know, because, well ….. I do not know, If I care enough, to know why is it that I do not know.

Cowards who fight

And so I see them killing and hunting, Crying for blood of those they know not of, And I see them howling and growling, Spitting on the fates of those they care not of, Vicious eyes and ferocious heart they carry, No reason they have to slaughter so many, I see them coming from the…

Shadows are dancing on my grave

Shadows are dancing on my grave, I see them from the hole that I have made, What reasons they hold to do so to me? Why do they laugh and be merry in my misery? I sulk in my dark horror with disparity, And they dance wildly without a moment’s clarity, What senses keep, do…

Crooked Dream

I found one day a crooked dream, Lying inside in the very heart of me, I looked upon it and I feared it breathed, Horror it revealed, terror it held for everyone who creeps, Dream of light beyond darkest nights, Dreams of cleaning old lake’s might, What must I do, I trembled upon my chair?…

Silently into the night

Silently, into the night, walks a soul, of misguided fright, into the depths, of despair, filled with grayish hell of misty sight, it goes unnoticed, without a sound, till we hear a blast, and find… Source: Silently into the night

A world of my own

Escaping into a world of my own, following footsteps, which I have never heard before, I tread carefully, but with courage and determination, this is mine to make, mine to keep, Mine to be forever … Source: A world of my own

The shrine of human intellect

An eternal wait, we endure, to come here, to what is great, awakening of senses, discovering thoughts in multitude, yet we give it away, for one man’s folly, endorsed by many a like, and enfo… Source: The shrine of human intellect
