The Mosey

Hobbled in an untrodden trail, Rough and tough, Amidst the sandy storms, Across the fiery flames, Felt feeble and fed-up, In the pursuit of peace, toxic hearts and fake faces  In a one-odious play. Still with the will among the hardest hills, On the long walk to freedom. Amen.

The Hidden

Oh veils, what are you hiding? Behind those walls, I suppose , there’s a garden, waiting to be explored, to be discovered, to be written about, to be identified, to be realized. Oh veil, like others I suppose, You got scars, Old and new, and Do you wish, If only we knew? Oh veil, how…

Confession

Why does it feel like the sky, is sending me a message? A hidden letter with every raindrop, drop by drop, it falls, impossible to decode with mere intelligence alone, Stronger than any code word that could ever exist.   With every drop that graces my cheek, comes a silent kiss from the sky, A…

Parents – Pay Rents

It’s the due date Both of them are in a state of panic yet excited Hurriedly they reach the emergency room After facing death the mother hears a cry and smiles with relief 2.5inches of happiness looks at them blankly as it begins to sprout out in this world Lightened faces and hearts Families congratulating…

Bordering a window pane.

A sandy outstretch lay yonder As far as the blinking eyes could see Grey patches of thorny shrubs decored Dunes covering the burning rocks The heat wave lauding the beaming sun To whom the lamenting sky lost its blue. And then I close my eyes to see … Streaks of golden on a pasture green…

Searchlight

The crowd counted her, Lass of provident. Only she knew that she’s a Regina, Of forced regiment.  The luscious, luminous lurex Brought her no jubilation. All she prayed for is that arms, Which embraces her giving liberation. Though, she’s an impeccable carved Slayer, shimmering And her  tone pristine a sonorous  Ringing But still, her heart…

The Godfather

In the line of sight We watch the horizon, As it has no age No enemies No deceit And no confusion.   We see from Afar, As it is all mystery All infamous All profound And all knowing.   In the line of sight We touch the horizon, As it gives no fantasy No burdens…

Cracks

I made cracks in a wall with my teeth and kept the spirit of my child in it, and told him I will be back for him. I am still the mother, I fold and unfold myself to bring forth a troublesome boy, and this line that runs over my abdomen is the way home….

Counting the Joyful Leaps

Beauty often time eludes  A manifest beauty it is not Plastered in turmoil and tragedy It reeks of frustration And bears a mark of fear Still, by and by Beauty ‘neath the pain Is all life is Counting the joyful leaps And pleasant tears We gain victory And life becomes that thing We just must…

Annihilation

I hear the casket close, Shut tight for one last time For my face to be forgotten Or to remain within someone. I hear the footsteps approaching Like gravel sand sliming through heals High as I go in the blinding dark alley Swaying my cold dead body in awe. The weeping and snuffle hasn’t stopped…
