Beyond Labyrinth by Dr. Alok Kumar Ray
I separate wayward thoughts from my mind and send them to dazzle elsewhere , remind not me again like twinkling stars
From now I want to disseminate love and light like the morning sun.
Sending positive vibes all-around
Banish darkness like the silvery moon
Blooming amidst long deserted desert as an oasis , to be the cause of perennial source of charm.
Torpedoed night has already been buried in its grave dug by itself
Lost its vigour and ferocious temper to mingle my alluring dreams in dusts of despair
I regained my lost and bygone energy
Breeding of past deeds only will create in mind severe anomaly
Of symmetrical upheavals in-between my inward and outward beings
Blood strains like deep impacts of the past relationship will be washed away by heavy rains of time
Tears in my eye substantiate my decision to forget the past and remain ever calm!
