Nothing Remains Then

Heart dies a death, very painful and slow

Shedding every tiny leaf of hope

Until no marks show

Nothing remains then,

Days pass by and then years after years

The memories of the past flowing in tears

You try to forget, you try to move on

Hoping for the darkness to subside

Waiting for the break of a new dawn

You put on masks you paint faces

You pretend, wiping away all the traces

Nothing changes nothing remains

No hopes no dreams

Just the shadows of pain

Until your past seems like a dream life

And your future…a blur of lies….

Smell Of Nothing

Smell Of Nothing short poem

Driving green fire out of melodies. It was not make-believe not mannerism but smell of autopsy. A pseudo-elegy starts at burial site. Frugality of dust first decides to go to god and then die. Race, religion, tribe and their foot-soldiers
