Night short poem


my cigarette end glows
like a blood shot eye
the mud wasp chirps
the house rat scuttle by
the shrill “Ge-ecko” of Geckos…

a dog perched on its hind limbs
sends out unpleasant vibrations
picked up by its mate in the next alley
and relayed…

a tendril of breeze caresses my face
two shadows silhouetted by the dim street lamp
clink together
lips meet…seconds tick by…
good bye and split.

the butt falls from my lips
into the gutter
scattering a million sparks
into the darkness!!

Splitting The Night

Splitting The Night short poem

Pillage started, when there were anti-answers. The trapped light- wanted to be released, from brutalism. When you were nearly drowned, in the multitude of questions, joining the palms, you collect the moments of solitude. You drop a key in the

The Night Sky

The Night Sky short poem

As the sun dives into the beguiling sky And the darkness is about to smear the vault of heaven. The mind, then wanders the lonesome places. The moment , when the mollified region is filled with despondency. The night, then
