Madhurantika Sunil: Figures of Thought: Collegiate Voices across Spaces

How Does it Feel?

How does it feel..
When u cry, but...
The tears don't come by..
Perhaps they are dry..
Does it mean we do not cry 
Or We do Cry!!!!
Maybe the tears are shy..
Or wait are they coy..
How does it feel..
When u cry, but..
The tears don't come by.. 

How does it feel...
Being called careless..
Accused though faultless..
Nights sleepless.. 
Head restless..
Moments countless...
Life faithless...
More or less..
The burden useless..
How does it feel..
Being called careless.
Accused though faultless..

How does it feel..
To witness 
Absolute policy of no tolerance
To witness
the pain in silence..
Inside their is storm of violence..
Taught the lesson of endurance
Only to be in surveillance...
Lies of assurance..
How does it feel?
Is there a Voice in Silence?
How does it feel
To cry
When the tears 
Don't come by... 
How does it feel?

What Do you do?

What do you do?
When u have immense sadness,
But still u portray happiness.

What do you do?
Do you Question your attitude?
Or u live by it with gratitude?

What do u do?
When u want to refuse,
But still u r put to use.

What do u do?
Do u feel angry and wild?
Or u be composed and mild?

What do u do?
Are u living , or 
Are u surviving

What do u do?
U want to rest, 
Or put yourself to test. 

What do u do?
Do your best?
Or just want to rest?

What do u do?
Do u accept and take.
Or your reaction is fake.

What do u do?
Be with someone?
Or would like no one?

What do u do?
Do u talk
Or do u walk

What do u do?
Breathe in , and Breathe out?
Or simply frown and shout?

What do u do?
Just leave and be indifferent
Or accept with commitment. 

What do u do?
Have feelings their way?
Or let them be in grey?

What do u do?
Tell me, what do u do?
What do u do?
