what transcends and what aspires,
of hopes, inhibitions, dreams and desires.

music has but failed in its course,
playing a sodomy, a vernacular intercourse.

disturbed thoughts, distorted dreams,
alive and kicking, a distant discourse.

what inspires and what deviates,
stuck on a crossroads, the mind fluctuates.

one cannot run, one cannot hide,
customary silences, a blessing in disguise.

what is love and what is life,
do we get the returns for the investment we desire?

carnal pleasures seem a thing of past,
someone to talk to, a protagonist’s desire.

jaded self, a weary mind,
where does he turn to, the clock is way past time.
