Urchins Sweet Smiles

Urchins Sweet Smiles short poem

My strange dreams of the night.

Disappeared with a bird’s wail

I realised another morning bright

And hoped for an exciting trail

Amidst loud shouts and curses

And the busy life of a modern day

My empty belly threatening ulcers

I seek refuge by a busy subway

Set besides my tools and tragedies

I search for an unkempt muddy boot

Or perhaps the stilettoes of rich ladies

At sight of which I give a hoot

A penny paid for every single pair

But sadly not for the torture faced,

Under the shining sun’s harsh glare

Or the thirst leaving me so dazed

My new pennies not to be spent in vain

The old ones lost on the previous stealths

I ignore a hungry stomach’s sharp pain

No meal could revive my pitiful health

Suddenly a screech, and the road a maze

The magnificient vehicle of my dreams

Looming threateningly at my face

Then blackness amidst harsh screams

I open my eyes trying to pull- in his sweetness closer. And as his laughter darts away- I wake up to reality’s punchline. Time may have set us apart- but here I am lost and clueless. As he speaks words

Sweet Saccharin Smile

Sweet Saccharin Smile short poem

My sweet saccharin smile feigned just for you, even shines in my eyes as I mentally plot your destruction. Small talk and lies drip from my lips like poisoned honey. No sleepless nights plague me, not even a minuscule pang
