Dang, Thy Gossip

Their gossip is a debauched addiction,
Aided by an imagination, so absurd…
The borders amid actuality and fiction;
Whizzes away, swift as an agile bird!

They are uncaring for infliction caused,
Or for the aftermath of tears and turmoil…
For crowds have now, suddenly paused!!
Their dull life has now excitement to boil.

No regret for the chaos of the life they eye,
For they earnestly believe their allegory,
And hence their theories shall never die,
The belief of all, a much desired victory!

But then they forget the all knowing entity..
Aware of all that needs to be decreed in deeds,
Shy perhaps then, might be their soul’s gist
When sprite justice decides to visit their way.

The Prince, The King And The Master

The Prince, The King And The Master long poem

The shrine of Madonna stood tall, The high king’s rapier fell down, not anymore was he the young prince, for he was devoid of all feelings. The shrine of Madonna stood strong, The high king’s blood washed the ivory pedestal,

Who Was Me?

Who Was Me? short poem

A misbelief breaks into rags. Still I dream of some gods on black pages piecing together the words of light. The rains come in the cage of tears, voicelessly. Striated muscles of splintered faith go to cramps birthing the avatar
