To Braze A Star

To Braze A Star long poem

Photo by Wsf Ali

You raise me from my deathlike slumber-
only to die out in silence like a shooting star.
With sweet words you buffer-
my heart into a steaming samovar!

Your frown sinks like a smiting bolder-
ruining my entire day like splattered tar.
You say your requests will bring us closer-
when all I see is a forager seeking a deodar!

And though this shrew is smitten with a botcher-
She is mindful of her captor!
Eschar with ordeals and betrayal, yet never-
a foolish law breaker to be seen in a peignoir!

I am who I am, a star cursed with daylight slumber-
so let’s not fall for our natures and spar!
Our mundane paths diverge around a geyser-
that’s blazed our lives in values and repertoire!

Spare me the tides of tender for cinder-
for a heart left ajar needs no crowbar!
You are my lifeline’s dagger
just as I am your lifetime’s scar!

Condor of the sun, your actions I shall counter-
With a soul so quasar!
You are my daylight downer-
just as I am your prey my par!

You and I differ my dawn seeker.
You rise when I die my lifetime quare!
So I tell you seek the night not the bazaar-
for only the night can reveal who I am- a shining star!

Dear pole star, I dedicate this to you, Because in my mind lies a question, why do you not twinkle like other stars do? Do you like to be there in the sky all alone? Do you want to rest,

I, thirst for nudging the butter lamp to peep inside the dark of a Shiva crater of human suffering, between your pain and my blood there was ancient history, where will you go now, no light has touched you so
