Reclusive Confinement

The hunt for escape roots has begun

Amidst their fragile lives slapped with insecurity.

“ How do I get out of here ?

Is there some place else where I can be happy ? ”

 

Overshadowed with intolerable compulsion,

And heart so heavy, forbids every attempt to raise a smile.

Has darkened the sky of dreams with rain clouds,

And brought before an innocent prisoner

And had him bid this world good bye

 

In search of reclusive pleasure to escape from this confinement

Have parted with age old morals and tales from grandma’s behest

Witnessing the ugly side of life’s face,

Fades away all princesses and childhood fairy tales.

 

I stand as refuge, as utter blunder

Harbouring fugitives of some broken war

And all it took was a defunct epiphany

Of some constrained relationship

To set this childhood dream free…
