Forgotten Purposes

Forgotten Purposes short poem

And you with me sloped on a crested deep
Both swirled in garbs of eastern ochre hue
eye viewing eye – the scintillating view
to melt within and spring in wistful sleep.

The whiff of thawed out selves wilt, wane away
From rituals, poetries and little sighs,
Unspoken they arise unwise, baptized,
Leaving behind attires of broken clay.

A spark shall fly from shafts of roused up heights
A thousand miles through dark and timeless space
Some cogitations come to birth at last
A lover’s cagey grip fetching the night.
You may want to free me from my disgrace
But the key to my liberty’s been tossed.

Tattered clothes that were barely there Her tortured soul was threadbare too. She mirrored our impotent helplessness In the face of destiny’s dire performance As we watched her bizarre life played out. Every time I saw her writhe and squirm,
