Looming Gloom

The mental state lately is turning oblivious to distress,
My share of every joy seems to regress
Just ahead of daybreak, as downpour gets persistent
Happiness becoming the cause of grief often is consistent
Towards the beauty of both worlds, the notion of apocalypse is leading
Where congregation is the same, but the charm is receding
Exact same wine, the goblet, the bartender, and the Inn
However, the sounds of revelry and carousing get thin
Steady is my companion, yet the heart does suffocate
It’s the same lamp even-so brightness seems to dissipate
There is tumult, yet hidden underneath an Oceanic wave
The once pounding heart in a murmurous fashion behave
Such is my predicament though unchanged life remains
As if from life, its very spirit is on the wane

Hundredth Post

From scratchy scribbling
in a personal log
Timid were beginnings
showcasing the minds clog

Prodding by few
had me revved up
A piece ensued
on thoughts pent-up

Stroke of luck
did play a part
Published it got
giving me a start

Platform I needed
to chronicle my thought
Blogging on WordPress
as a vehicle sought

Amidst the chaos
of likes, comments, following
Committed to creating
content, I kept slogging

Upon scrutiny my
work might not pass
Yet satisfaction this endeavour
entailed, does everything surpass

Today I feel
like raising a toast
Here in revelry
writing my hundredth post
