the indeterminate sky

he roared with laughter

and the thunder rumbled,

a shine glazed his eyes

and the lightening strikes again,

he wept in joy

and sweet droplets peter down,

he cried a lover’s melancholy

and the great tears descend,

he wailed a mother’s fear

and the drops solidified,

he hollered in pain of despondency

and the tempest turns up

begetting mayhem and annihilation,

he is powerful,

formidable he is,

the king of the heavens,

the seed of the mother earth,

the father of the titans,

the eldest of all,

the indeterminate sky.

My Achilles’ heel

My mind is my Achilles’ heel

in front of which I kneel

It is my weakness even when

I am strong

It is the fatal flaw which when

struck with an arrow

causes indeterminate pain

and may even lead to the end

of the entire thought process

It is something I will

always have to deal with, my mind-

My Achilles’ heel.
