Spoken Word – The demons in me

You can find this poem in my book – Lightning Rhymes

The demons in me (edited version)

The demons in me
are screaming and dancing
making me restless

The demons in me
are whispering and laughing
making me nervous

The demons in me
are twisting and turning
not letting me breathe

The demons in me
are nesting inside me
trying to break me in pieces

The demons in me
are simply reflections
my own interpretations

The demons in me
I recognize them now
so I let them stay
without giving attention

The demons in me
are Control, Ego and Pain-body
nobody but me can set them free

The demons in me
wish to open my Heart
so I let my Self leave
to be the very Being

Projected Reflection

The most beautiful things happen
When the heart is fully open
Even in shocks & painful reality
We can find the deeper ocean
Everything has its own value
There’s no need to judge & measure
The free flow of pure energy
With that magical connection
Transforming the blurry vision
Through the spectacles so spiritual
The echo of the naked heartbeat
Is the melodious percussion
Every step on this journey
Is the sacred destination
Every word on this transparency
Is my very own projected reflection

Spoken Word – Oh dear Anxiety

Oh dear Anxiety

I hear this anxiety is escalating slowly on my top floor
While silence is hiding under the pillow from the screaming thoughts
Restlessness has started filling my rough surface with the titanium foam
I’m breathing heavily & shivering but it’s not coz it’s freezing cold
So I start kneading my feet against each other to feel the needed warmth
My body is gradually curling under the duvet in the consoling C form
Anxiety is shaking me with this weird feeling of being the immortal corpse

It’s exhausting & daunting to choose this path to be all alone
But my mind is fighting constantly while the heart has chosen to let it go
My fluid eyes are wired to this immersive scene where I lay on bed & freely float
I let anxiety travel inside of me without allowing it to absorb the shiny core
It’s pinpointing these tiny dots on its way to create a meaningful flow
This movement is painful but it’s better than to cage anxiety in the concealed box
So I’m mindfully reconnecting to the silence where there’s no need to speak anymore

The Floating Silence

It’s kinda crazy when I walk with almost an empty cartridge of this aching cartilage which is making me to lose my already weakened balance to the point of breakage but I still choose not to anchor myself to the hook of conditioned cottage coz all I want is to fall freely from the highest mountain to the deepest surroundings so I can easily harness the limitless energy when I erupt the volcanic traces of my carbonated phases in the floating silence of this oceanic darkness which is the effervescent & organic process to heal the righteous arthritis that’s trying to block the free movement of my invisible & powerful senses

This Beautiful Scene

Just look at this beautiful scene
Sunny beams in minus five degree C
Snow is the shiny jewel of the trees
The ground is decorated with calming tapestry
The impressions of feet can be very deep
But they will disappear one day eventually
What to lose & what to achieve
It’s never about the win or defeat
Just close or open your lids as you please
And breathe in & out this winter breeze in peace
Listen carefully to the intuition & the beat
The energy is real, it’s pure & serene
The heaven is here, it has always been
Look deep within coz you’re this beautiful scene

Sometimes

Sometimes my screen freezes instantly with slippery breeze of swirling intense seas & then it seems that I’m firmly sealed in this patented Rubik’s C made of patterned cubical bricks where I skip some beats when I forget to simply breathe due to high latency of my wired screams as I’m letting scenes of those caged memories to run through my tears where I fall as leaves in my sleepless dream coz I can’t fall asleep

Spoken Word – Inner Music

Music created in GarageBand

Inner Music

What does music mean to me?
What’s the rhythm & melody?
What’s the meaning of its lyrics?
What’s the depth & its beauty?

It’s like when the blood in my veins is playing the riffs
When the heart of mine is thundering drum beats
When the eyes of mine blink the hi-hat
When the brain of my self is synthesizing & compiling the different sounds

Silence is the lyrics that I write for this unique song
Deep voice I possess to sing my own lyrics
It’s blowing the self away & melting down the lead in me
It’s pushing me beyond my own untested & untrusted limits

Lightness & Darkness are the effects I use on my sound stage & screen
Connecting with my inner audience, which was once forgotten behind my scene
I’m lost in this divine music that unites me with the energy of the unseen
This is the salient sound of my inner music

A poem about Love

On 4th November Josie @josima7772 from Instagram shared a post, where she wrote 4 lovely lines about love & tagged her silver sisters…she didn’t tag me directly coz…well, I ain’t no sista 😉😂…I’m a platinum card holder though…by that I mean, I’ve platinum long hair…she tagged me in her story to ask if I would write a few lines about love…the moment I went through her story & then the post, I wrote these lines instantly…whatever showed up on my inner screen in that moment…I wrote this poem as a comment on Josie’s post…sharing it with you…you are also welcome to read the original post by clicking here

We dream love
We bleed love
We breathe love
But still it seems so
We miss love
We seek love
Not everyone is being loved
Coz we forget in the thick rush
That love has always been within us

Lightning Rhymes Review by Pragalbha Doshi

I’m humbled, deeply touched & honoured by sharing this amazing, beautiful & heartfelt review with you, of Lightning Rhymes by Pragalbha Doshi, of Infinite Living of my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…I’m filled with the feeling of WOW…what a way Pragalbha has written this review…a profound gift to me…my gratitude to you, Pragalbha ✨🙏✨

A screenshot of the review
Here’s the full review:

“Navin Manik’s poetry and poetic prose give us glimpses of the kind afforded only to the one who is touched to the core of their soul and then allowed to return to surface. I am overwhelmed with appreciation for how present his words are to the moment-to-moment flow of life from inside out, through, and through.

Lightening Rhymes is a treasure to hold in my hand, as I read page after page. This is the poetry of the kind that comes unannounced and breaks one open, one by one, or perhaps seals one back, one by one, depends how we look at it. I recognize all those themes and spaces from where, as if a triumphant mourning happens through poetry as each one trickles out of our being – Navin does all of it absolutely exquisitely. His poems are an experience of a Fullness of Nothingness that moves within into a stillness – very impactful in written and spoken form. They are brilliant expressions of the stark experiences of our inner world.

It feels a great contentment for the gift of Navin’s poetry, with such unique rhythm and incredible beauty, to be out in the world.”

I’m grateful to each & every one of you…for your wonderful support…for your unconditional love towards my poetry…I can’t describe the feelings when I see & read that my book is bought, read & then reviewed…I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…It is available in both paperback & eBook editions.
