My Vacant Lot
After every creation my mind is lost into oblivious a state of nothingness. Why this happens?
I am in a state of pensive mood. Desperately trying to unfold the interior region of my wit and emotions.
Thoughts come like rain
Delayed by the monsoon in the distant hills. And emotion imprisoned like a unruly rebel
Unable to access , without from within.
Dr. Santanu Kumar Dash.
