An Ode To The Burglar

An Ode To The Burglar ode

Filthy fingers that pinched my wallet
Crooked skeletons in your closet
Using every sliver of shade to hide your face
In the blinding, piercing light of righteous day
Heart smashing violently against your ribs
As you scurry to seek a lightless asylum
All you hear is your trembling warm breath
In the pitch-black
As you attempt to regain your momentum
In vain.
Always feeling eerily luminous eyes stalk you
Sensing poison ivy prick into your raw flesh
Forever suffocated by an unnamed sensation
Inability to maintain eye-contact in conversations
Each damned lungful of air you respire
Fills me with twice as much worth of ire
As to why you slithered stealthily away
When your hands are smeared with crimson blood stains

Despicable criminal
It is hardly a word that I should be using
For someone of a respectable school
So what if you have found your musing?
When I go to college, will you head there too?

No, of course not

Won’t even be able to lift your head up
Can’t even walk straight
Drowning in a whirlpool of your dire straits
You pray to God for salvation and luck
But his holiness ignores cowards like you
Countless sleepless nights await you
Bloodshot eyes,
Feeling something is chomping on your insides
I urge you, the sordid and ignominious
To own up to your own atrocity
Shall you fail
I will make sure I attend your hearing
And ensure I escort you personally to jail

An Ode To True Love ! ode

Love – the quest , the ‘curiousity’, begins in us early, for there’s always enough of a legacy, to entice, seduce and delight ‘posterity’ … Seeds of ‘romance,embrace and cajole’, Nurture within to become ‘full grown and whole’, Everyone in

Ode To A Meteor

Ode To A Meteor short poem

They stand stiffly before his milky contrail thought of tittering, a fiction, flying across an evening sky once a giggle mash, now a distant funerary memory. Imagine it, a flounder flopping in deadly malodorous silence. Truth rips at his empty

Fly – Flight – An Ode To Birds

Fly   Flight   An Ode To Birds long poem

Birds levitate and are airborne, Flapping wings soaring to the highest stratosphere, Flying into the blue yonder, Over snowcapped mountains, abutting the clouds, Flying, gliding, landing, so sublime Perching themselves in the tiny gap between other birds on a cable
