Always free.

Like an idle useless old tree,

I am for you always free.

Confused I am about the time,

Like in darkness one is counting dimes.

Unless autumn when a leaf from tree fall,

You don’t need any reason to call.

So make me hear your beautiful voice,

Whenever you want it’s your choice.

-Shivesh Gupta


Too much to bear.

You will be there only for a year,

That too now seem too much to bear.

Even the mirror now started to make fun and jeer,

Life is here going like a car with stuck gear.

Away from you I stay in constant fear,

So all I wish is for us to get near.

The illusion of loneliness.

Loneliness is so overrated,
Can we ever be lonely even for a moment?
I think not.
In this world that’s full of chaos,
Loneliness is a luxury.
Everything around you is in conspiracy to give you company.
Everything around is a constant reminder that you can never be lonely.
The constant ticking of clock,
The song of the crickets.
This makes me wonder then,
Why people need to be lonely and alone?
Why do they carve for something that they cannot have?
Maybe the question itself is an answer.
It’s human nature to want something they cannot get.
Fact is different from what it appears.
Most people don’t want to be lonely,
They just want the illusion of loneliness.
