Heaven Of The Dark Age

Heaven Of The Dark Age short poem

Photo by Merve illeux

This heaven is a pretty maid living in the Dark Age,
With minds of the moron, hearts of the fool,
crawling into her cradle of tears lying in waste,
And she smiles, emotionless clusters in full.

As the bleak eyes look onto her and wrestles,
For hidden answers, for truth, sweet and bitter.
But this heaven lies in the arms of hell and nestles,
The brute, so brute, and shines to live in her silver glitter.

From a past forbidden, hidden, wronged in this darkness
The buried heart that groans and moans lying frozen,
Yet she dismays the fate, the worth, ugly to harness
As her heaven dreams of distant truth and love to reason.

I finished Doctorate in Linguistics from North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong, Meghalaya (India)and started teaching at Tezpur University, Assam. I was born on 2nd November, 1983 in my hometown, Haflong, in Assam (India). Haflong is in the lap of nature and the beautiful Barail mountains have always inspired me to dream and write. I wrote my first poem 'roses' when I was 10 years old though I lost that piece as a young child. I have been writing several poems since then as a young girl and a confused teenager, but very few though more meaningful ones, as of now. Shillong with its scenic beauty keeps me engrossed with photography, fun with friends, social activities and a little time for poetry amidst the hectic research schedules. My poetry themes vary from nature to ambitions, from self questions to relationships. My other favorite pastimes include, writing short stories and quotations, trekking, shopping, sketching, travel and many others. I do not know what future brings in, with poetry for me, but it's something I love doing when I'm best left with, all by myself and my world of emotions.
