Cypher - Poem by Akshat Shukla

The mist blurs my sight, frozen the eyelids;
The drizzling of sloth and paranoia over
The infinite precincts of finte life—
No retreat, disquieting bells, baseless strife.

    The feeling of melancholy overwhelms the poetic souls often. A poet's biggest battle is to fight his own sad, lonely self. This feeling makes one feel like a loser and it seems there's no way out. But writing it, describing it is a way out. An ingenious piece that describes melancholy so well. (Report) Reply

    Come out of this mist that blurs your sight..... and come to the light! Let not sloth be allowed to overpower you! (no preaching!) But the sense of melancholy that lies frozen in all your poems disturbs me. Powerful compression of feelings in this terse quatrain! A 10 (Report) Reply
