THE DWINDLING FLESH

 

With the swirling lightening
The dark night began to pace
Extending its claw like lewd eyes
And vampires began knocking the door
In their intoxicated culmination
With bang and drunken assault
And she began to shake
Nullified to be void
In that chilly night’s casement
Only she could surmise
A demon surely to step in.

The door started creaking
In horrendous force
She remained just dwindling flesh
Submerged into her moaning heart.

Her faith of life
Moldered into shivering pain
Her languorous hands
Did not deter these horrifying hours
The bells in the temple
Never sensed her sobbing heart.

She turned into cinder of fate
Ready for martyrdom she was beset
And to be devoured by the ghastly night.

The bullying hands crushed her
Till she became a log of wood
Where ants began to crawl on
As long as they wish!

WEAVING METAPHOR

 

Cheerless time
stands
in a queer look:
its chariot ready
to strike
like the
lightening
when human niceties
waltz
across the sky
to trawl
around
tumultuous
ripples of destiny.

A persistent companion—–
time again
sneers
in mesmerized
whizz
like wilful wind
or darting
dragonflies
romping across
pervasive darkness
weaving metaphor
petrified
in ascetic
amphitheater
and jocund wishes
and benign dreams lie
sprawled
like mercenaries
in the foreign soil.

SLUMBER

 

The delusive spring
saunters
over coy land
like a modest flower girl
pacing
through the garden
and fecund serene sky
waits for horizon
to fondle in caress.

Erstwhile clouds
try to clasp the moon
in mercurial embroidery
as if she were beloved
for merry casement!

Rueful dreams trickle
like tales of summer
and spill over
numb grass
in gleaming rays
as wanton as buffeting breeze
pervasive in the heart
to wake us
from the slumber!
