Remember… to forget

I lost my view of portrait I’d once seen,

of lady twining together her tears,

no longer can I remember that scene,

 .

elapsed colors of her skin, blue and green,

the drowning balloon of sun in the rear,

I lost my view of the portrait once seen,

.

her lapel eyes dark-circled waning sheen,

gazing deep with a vision of a seer,

no longer can I remember that scene,

.

my loss matching hers, memory swept clean,

blinding kohl we have tinged in our eyes, smear(ed),

to lose the view of things we had once seen,

.

my thoughts jumbled, the dots blurred, I careen

to deter what might have become a fear,

no longer shall I remember that scene,

.

I try hard to recall her grief serene,

to wipe it away and draw a veneer,

to lose the sight of portrait I’d once seen,

no longer would I remember that scene

Unsaid words

the unsaid words die within after all,

wheels of time spinning, their relevance lost,

on the pages of past, their names, I scrawl,

.

I make a heap of them into a ball,

my tarnished repentance on it embossed,

the unsaid words die within after all,

.

I carry their weight, on my back, I haul

my believes against each other accost,

while on pages of past, their names, I scrawl,

.

I rub myself against comforting shawl,

saving me from the sharp bites, of this frost

of unsaid words, dying within after all,

.

their last sting marked on my heart, on its walls,

standing crooked, I am paying the cost,

on the pages of past, their names, I scrawl

.

I shed this pain bit by bit, every small

pang prodding, strengthening me, to exhaust

these unsaid words, let them die after all,

on the pages of past, their names, I have scrawled

The Companion

grey-haired woman stays alone but for one,

a companion of sorts, a strange being,

who rouses her daily with rising sun,

 .

with a breakfast of milk, butter and bun,

she begins her practice, old songs she sings,

grey-haired woman stays alone but for one,

.

never seen, a mystery known to none,

rumoured to be a demon with black wings,

who rouses her daily with rising sun,

.

she lives a life of a recluse, a nun

in her drab white blouse, and silver earrings,

grey-haired woman stays alone, but for one,

.

who resembles her long lost love, her son,

to sights of his radiant face, she clings,

who rouses her daily with rising sun,

.

resonates one dawn, the shout of a gun,

people come, check the house, finding nothing,

grey-haired woman stayed alone but for one,

who took her with him with the rising sun

Hiding in garage

there is something hiding in the garage,

the clustered space dominated by car,

delusion of something true, like mirage,

.

shielding this present time, by a barrage

from the bombardments, of objects bizarre,

which are something hiding in the garage,

.

enclosing nasal holes, this entourage

of spicy scents of Arabian bazaar,

delusion of something true, like mirage,

.

flowering like an old lady’s corsage,

from somewhere appears, an image of tsar

who is somebody hiding in garage,

.

steam wafts, like from a parlour of massage,

mist, fog, haze, I can smell smoke of cigar,

delusion of something true, like mirage,

.

it is but quite a wide ranging montage,

my eyes clouded in the twinkle of stars,

I am somebody hiding in garage,

a delusion of something, like mirage

On the bank

on the bank, of the shallow crimson lake

where the footprints of past appear at night,

the sands cry blood tears with him, for his sake,

.

forlorn blossoms grow there, for him to take,

to let them flow in waters, in his sight

on the bank of the shallow crimson lake,

.

where, her existence, he would carve, and make

his pain glow in the long day’s last light,

sands crying blood tears beneath him, for his sake,

.

the monotonous routine, he can’t break,

his wild saggy face seems to him just right,

on the bank, of the shallow crimson lake,

.

he crawls, leaving his trail, of a weak snake,

tired of loss and living, he can not fight

sands crying blood tears, beneath him, for his sake,

.

he capitulates, no longer forsake

emptiness of darkness, so very quiet

on the bank, of the shallow crimson lake,

where sands cry blood tears, with him, for his sake

.

Ravenous for Might

ravenous heart, bidding my soul for might,

giving me glitches, skin straining, blotched red,

that could plunge me, into rivers of plight,

.

blinded by nefarious spells of night,

seeking frigidness, writhing in the bed,

ravenous heart, bidding my soul, for might,

.

flaking fungi, of my carcass of blight,

shrapnel of abhorrence, into me bred,

which could plunge me, into rivers of plight,

.

disdained, thrust into the nightmares of fright,

feathers of innocence, having been shed,

by ravenous heart, bidding soul for might,

.

insane ramblings, getting my name ignite,

into a blaze, devouring my life threads,

plunging me, into the rivers of plight,

.

unnamed, my remnants run into contrite

of identity, dissolved in rites, fed

by ravenous heart, bidding soul for might,

not mine, I plunge into rivers of plight

Boon of Agersia

the boon of agersia, coursing in him,

greying hair shed, and black spurting in place,

his tan temple creased, folded, frowning grim,

.

being made to keep going, against his own whim,

mistaken path, he chose back in time space,

the boon of agersia, coursing in him,

.

years passed, lost loved ones, light of eyes gone dim,

anguish shrouding  the features of his face,

his tan temple creased, folded, frowning grim,

.

unruffled by wars, conflicts, the prelim

of his journey, judged by the higher mace,

cursed boon of agersia, coursing in him,

.

through millenniums, his existence swims,

past it all, beholds, not leaving a trace,

his tan temple creased, folded, frowning grim,

.

the books of his destiny, marked by skim

of mantras, meant to be a gift from grace,

the boon of agersia, coursing in him,

his tan temple creased, folded, frowning grim

.
