Alphabet L – Lost!

A to Z Challenge

L

Day 14 – ** Theme : Kaleidoscope of thoughts**

ic:u-in-u.com

Bustling streets, screeching tyres,

blaring sirens, blinking lights,

blowing horns, choking voices,

smoky air, buildings galore

depleting trees, warmer days,

hooting trains, traffic snarls,

Lost in the chaotic city!

                ******

Malicious minds, venomous tongues

shattering dreams,  scattered feelings

illusionary happiness, tired souls,

heated infernos, eroding values

disconnected families, strained relationships,

Lost in the waves of emotional behaviour!

                ********

Mired in the mayhem of

turbulent perceptions,

in the mundane and humdrum,

in the anarchic lifestyle

the mind and  the soul

wander in search to emerge

out of the crooked maze

rambling like nomads,

Totally lost!

    I can relate to the first verse actually. The chaos of the city is draining and not very fun to be in. Definitely feel lost in it at times, esp. in traffic jams which are abundant here.

    Very well written Radhika, sad part is that lack of economic opportunities in villages pushing the rural population to be lost in cities.

    rambling like nomads totally lost. Superb lines of truth in this world of chaos and loved this wonderful poem Radhika. So apt with your picture of this hustle and bustle of life and really like nomads we are wandering here and there in search of silence. Great poem.

      I sometimes feel chocked in the city and wish to go off to some quiet place. Unfortunately that is not possible with so many commitments! Thanks Kamal and have a good day!

        Same here Radhika and yes the beauty of a life away from hum drum is so nice. To just to be to ourselves and yes family life is also our priority. Anyways enjoy life and be happy.

    Lost… the word has so many dimensions. Your musing today reflects three facets of it in most apt way! Every facet made me take a pause and ponder over it before I could move on to the next one!
    Good read indeed!

    This poem for me symbolises life in the 21st century, evolved in so many ways yet regressed in so many others..Thank you for penning such contemplative verses

    So draining and chaotic the traffic of cities is, no longer can one call it hustle bustle.. it’s maddening cacophonies drive one up the wall.
    Loved the phrase illusionary happiness!!!

    Lost in the city, we all are, lost in our meaningless existance keeping our lives too busy to stop and stare at nature’s wonders, to eat a sumptuous meal, to give that dazzling smile, but just to hoard your lifeless life in riches and material wealth only to leave you in an expensive hospital bed and a few ‘ I wish’ in your head!
    A sad truth, so well expressed, Radhika!

    Well written Radhika!I love how you string your words into something profound such as this!:) I can relate to these words immensely!
    It’s all a blur sometimes, isn’t it? Lost in the hustle bustle and the sudden epiphanies of slowing down…

      Yes Divya. At times, I feel so claustrophobic and lost in the city and its people. I wish to escape into the open arms of the nature. 🙂
