Strangely Forward

Strangely forward…. by Susi Bocks

I Write Her

like out of a sci-fi film
the tension builds
as our reality becomes an unrealistic
and an unwanted fantasy
we’d never have dreamt up willingly

personal habits mutated overnight, for some
people affected before our eyes, everyone
all steps ventured became tentative
a feeling of a strange abnormal that couldn’t be defined
the markers of who to be kept changing

many were lost, not just the dead
their lives upended with new realities of despair
retreating into themselves, forced there
alone with the grim reaper
loved ones watching from afar, helpless

covid-19 will cease to be eventually
oh, but the cost of the lessons learned
as mentally, emotionally and physically we heal
the scars of devastation will linger
the pain of the losses great
as we, the left behind, begin to emerge anew

Lonely …… by s.s.

Lonely comes from knowing you

liked morning to kiss your lips

lulled from dream drenched slumberings,

little aware of my heart

longing for your mulled murmurs,

lured into sweet pain of hope.

Lonely comes from knowing you

Lockdown Reflections

Go to sleep with hope …. By Ramya Vivek

My Musings

The country or atleast most parts of it is heading towards a re-lockdown. Though I understand the reason behind it, it pains me to look at the small time businesses that are heading for a shutdown and daily wage workers struggling to cope up. Whenever I read news of people ending their lives with the hopelessness of the situation strangulating them, I feel helpless and sad.

I wrote these few lines keeping them in mind.

In a place I (don’t) wanna be

Image: Saturday Evening post He remembers a sense of unease in company right from childhood.  He would be full of enthusiasm for a new experience, but find himself at the other end of strange looks. There was something that others could not relate to, and preferred staying away. He attached no great value to relationships …

Confusion

She came every Thursday, dressed in a shade of blue matching her eyes and her straight, long, auburn tresses burnt the consciousness of all participants there.  “I’m fit enough to leave the asylum”, declared a confident-looking young man. “Good to know that, and I’ll bid you goodbye after you have undergone the mandatory tests.” “I …
