Facade short poem

Photo by utpal.

New beginnings and cries,
The hatred and unbound lies,
Incandescent retorts that menace,
And preys on my existence.

Who would say, this creature,
Once exuded exuberance?
Will you ever give,
Perhaps a second glance?

This heart will ache,
Tears will be shed,
Guilt will be fed,
Till the very end.

Ravenous silhouettes slither,
Emerging from the darkness,
Into this spiraling madness,
To caress my flesh hither,
And devour the latter.

Like the wick of a candle,
In this wicked world,
Burning the threads of conceit,
Igniting the fiery contempt,
Within me.

It gives you pleasure,
Doesn’t it?
To see my blemished face,
Estranged from embrace.

“Hide away the ugly,
Put on a facade.
Fake a smile,
Bear it all”,
Till it becomes your call.

You gather in number uncountable, Near the exquisite coffin, Wreath extortionate you lay, The smoked perfume ornate, White linen immeasurably laid, Candles light, the burning flames, Engaging sight I see from here! Wish when the breath was there, The uncountable

The Fragile Facade

The Fragile Facade long poem

How frail, in truth, is the world that we tread The captains and kings predicting calm seas ahead As they’re riding high, upon their silver spoons Laughing, as below the world withers; dying blooms How thin the membrane of life’s


Facade short poem

We often wear the masks to hide, To fit in more, to better survive. Hide behind the complicated smiles, Confident, no one would catch our lies. Nothing seems a bit real now, Even the shadow now takes a bow. We
