Cataly-6
















This is about anything or more precisely any phenomenon that happens to us atleast once in our lives which creates a mind altering scenario where much of our critical reasoning and logic fails. This phenomenon cant be judged in a scale of good/bad , the right/wrong or the positive/negative. Its just stateless and its there. But you can relate to it on several other emotional dimensions like courage,love,apathy,telepathy,fear, etc. Its really upto you on how you feel like relating yourself to it. Thanks!
. . .

An intervention in me , became you
Endless years in wonder
That voice in rain calling
my name, the silent thunder

I gave up slowly to your charm
And embraced this transience
From a vacuum to void calm
to a metaphysical genesis , became you

An interaction in me , became you
Clutched the tenderness tightly
Afraid to shove the unbearable
Therefore I changed slightly
Like blue water into a crystal

Your unsurpassed dexterity
Created a neutral world inside me
With full of dreams and purity
Now rendered vague but indeed , became you

An imagination in me, became you
A helping hand , the moment's need
But from where I stand, its not too deep
Your thoughts keep evolving like a seed
Inside this mind trampoline, the change is so steep

Beneath the soil lies this unfinished portrait
Not a cognitive synthesis but a psychic bet
Within a span of intimacy and a smile that's due
Thus I changed , I became you

Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer.
