A ‘Damned’ Soul

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

A ‘damned’ soul Rebuked. Obvious contempt cast down A sinner “She’ll rot in hell”, some murmur Night falls Suddenly an angel laid on heavenly bed in a small chamber whispering endearments The Venus of their lustful play Satisfied, they leave Once stepped out she is a ‘damned’ soul.

From God With Love

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

In a garden of flowers I was a bud about to bloom . And when I bloomed, I opened my eyes, Stood there an angel Beautiful she was. Her eyes were like the stars, With tears of joy, And undying love. Years passed by and the nights grew old, But that love she had is…

Too Much Is (Never) Enough

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

  You think you’re too much or worse, you think you’re not enough. Implying there needs to be just the right amount of everything inside you – Implying there needs to be balance to make yourself seem whole complete – A flawless human being.   But what is enough and what is too much? Where…

Perfect Score

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Beautiful melodies poured from her black and white keys He was pleased; She was happy. Then he began to find flaws: a note missing here and there, a sharp instead of a natural, a minor key for a major one. She tried hard, to tune her melodies to his rhythm But, day by day, he…

Dancer In The Dark

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Come closer, dearest…come on. Do you see that little fire dancing Gaily in the dark? Brave against the wind’s soft music Clay lamp in the garden? It’s pretty, isn’t it? I see the gentle Light wash over your black hair, deep eyes, your loving heart… Splendid for a mere minute. Swaying young ephemeral hips in…

Unlearn

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

We belong to the generation Brought up in suspicion. We were taught to suspect the other, The dark skinned, The ones with red dots, The slight edge to the accent. We were taught to be vigilant, Of live bombs, that would Set themselves a blast, Of parcels left unattended, Surprise gifts that would kill. We…

The Saffron Robe

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

She waits- At the gate To see a glimpse Of the man she love, The man who loved her. So dearly, So tenderly, So honestly, So passionately.   She waits- At the gate To see a glimpse Of that turbulent past, In his deep brown eyes, A trace of remembrance, A trace of nostalgia, A…

Again & Again

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

Together we walk over this landscape everything looks too familiar, everything the same as yesterday. At the churchyard, we read names on the tombstones. In  the woods, we carve out our names on ancient trees. In the meadows, we lie down on the grass facing infinity. Again and again we walk together over this landscape. Again…

Dear Child

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

My dear child So naive and mild This world so wild But don’t be viled. There will be smiles Which won’t reach eyes Please be wise To see through sweet lies. There will be tears Which won’t cause smears Your worries and fears Will bring only sneers. But, my sweet child So naive and mild…

Hurricane

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

I waited anxiously. Knew it would come soon. Slowly at first, then with monstrous vigour, The dark clouds that spread, threatened to swallow the hemisphere. The treacherous seagulls fled. I tried desperately to light a candle, To ward off the darkness, that promised to engulf me, But nowhere I could find a lighter. The howling wind was the only music heard in the labyrinth, except for the worried beat of my own heart. I tried to recall the happy tunes, that were played years ago, But no melody lives in the chambers of my head. The force of the gale shattered all the windows. Broken glasses scattered everywhere. I struggled to put them back into their former shape, But the shards of glass dug into my skin. Oozing blood, I winced in pain. I cannot put the shattered pieces back in place. Outside, the trees danced to the violent rhythm of the storm, Creating ghost-like shadows that haunt me. The pitch blackness entertained their wile efforts, No light in the vicinity to chase them off. I prayed hard, for this torment to end, for the pain to disappear, for the fear to ebb, for the darkness to fade, for a light to save. Suddenly I woke up. All around me is quiet. What was that nightmare? I could not fathom, It is only a phantom, I told myself. Image Courtesy:http://67.media.tumblr.com
