just a weird thought




Just some weird thoughts. :)

“Just a weird thought”

What good is a knight without his armor and sword?

What good is a saint without the wisdom of the universe?

And what good is a soul without the spirit of love?

-Iflah Laraib


When stars are all alight,
And the wind is soft and cold,
I sit underneath the open sky,
waiting for a mystery to unfold.
I drift into waking dreams
of love, loss and life.
I drift into bleak dreams
of what would come with morning light.

Each day I try to recall
things said and done
But I forget a detail or two
and I know that time has come
for me to leave it all behind
and keep moving on,
but every evening brings back
the memories taken away by dawn.
So I dream; dream with waking eyes
until shrouded by sleep.
I wonder of the truths and lies
until I can no more weep.

I feel no pain, nor any grief.
I feel a numbness – skin deep
I have no longing, nor any wish
But a thought in my mind’s abyss,
That one night these naive stars
Won’t shine on my grotesque scars
To remind me of the skins I’ve shed
Or of the times my heart has bled.

This thought of a dream,
this dream of a thought
is all that I have
and still have it not.
With every morning, each day
a figment of it is taken away.
So bit by bit, when it is all gone,
gone will be a piece of my soul
Leaving a blank canvas of a heart
For another story to be told.

Just a weird thought #2

Never been so tough
To look so easy.

-Iflah Laraib


You are in the silences
between my words.

-Iflah Laraib


On nights still and cold, wild memories unfold.
-Iflah Laraib


Truths and lies quarrel
to escape the burning heart.

-Iflah Laraib


Laburnum blossoms
Others fall.

Just a weird thought #1

Carrying the weight of the world

on your delicate shoulders.

Eyes heavy with sighs

of the sorrows of the universe.

Heart sinking into ribs,

drowning in the sea of injustice.

Voices of the dead in your head

telling you to do this and that

while the hands of humanity’s past

wrap tightly around your neck.

-Iflah Laraib


Well yeah..this has been a really long break. Life has been really tough all this time. But finally..once again I have found something to blah here. Out of the emotional and weirdly strange part of me. I wonder. A lot of things. A lot of times. But it all converges to the same big question. “WHY?”.

Here goes the same saga : Why are we on this earth? Who we really are: Just people racing to get something big or are we the small simple minds that find solace in just staring at the moon? Are we here to prove or are we ourselves the answer to all our problems? Are we the problem itself? Are we the question? Why do we feel helpless? Are we meant to be? Is perfection something worth seeking for? Why are we not happy? Why do people have to separate? Why are some people bad? Why does nature go mad at everyone? Why are we mad at earth? Do we really make sense? Is making sense so important?

Questions. Questions. Questions

I know most of these questions themselves are senseless but I often wonder. And I believe, many of us do. At some or the other point in our lives. And you know what is the worst part? Not all of them have an answer and not all answers are same. Everyone of us perceives these questions differently and has an entirely different answer. So, Why am I blogging this? Well I don’t know. I just am.

But let’s just think. What if we could live life without any fear? Fear of losing someone or something. Fear of being the last. Fear of lagging behind. Fear of being hated. Fear of death. Fear of the very next instant. Hydrophobia. Chromophobia. Glossophobia. Lipophobia. Spectrophobia. Zoophobia. Phobiaphobia (*word invented by me*). Imagine a phobia free world! Breakout from the fears that we are constantly succumbing to. Fear.
So if that happens, that is, if a fearless world ever comes into existance, then there won’t be any questions. No why, what, when, who, how and whatever; because in such a world, you won’t have to be answerable to anyone. We can do what we like, without having to have a reason for then we won’t fear as to what the society thinks or whatour friends will say ar how will our family react. Absolutely no worries! 🙂

Ya, now enough of nonsense.None of it is ever gonna happen. More than half of us will still be afraid of, if nothing then, the future and above all, it is just a hypothesis. And on second thoughts, if such world ever exists then it will lack any kind of progress because in a world like that, no one will fear the law, the economy, the boss! So when the above, even if possible, is not good for ‘progress’, then why think of it?
