Dreams Die Fast / Poem by NilavroNill Shoovro

Poem by NilavroNill Shoovro


Dreams Die Fast

And at last the indomitable world was unfolding
In my palm.
All the skies were merging
Into my blue.
All the seas drowned
Into my passions.
All the stars melted
In my vein.
And then I had recruited Time.
To keep the show rolling.

In our everyday meeting
We discussed how to form
The blood the red one!
I told the primordial atom
To diffuse every pain into love.

The blood will run the world.
And it happened just as I thought.
All the cosmic nights
With their different angles-
Tried to warn us, reminding-
That blood was forbidden.
Forbidden from the very start.

Before the onset of every Big bang,
They tried the same.
In my first dream
I felt those passionate kisses
Beneath those locked eyes.

Holding the breath together
Believing in each other!
Mesmerized! That I became.
So blood was inevitable to form.
But it became bloodier
In every battle from the
Neolithic time.

So the primordial atom
Sheds tears accusing me
For Everything.
From greed to power.
From hate to violence.
From deceit to lies.

Now when I see them walking inside.
Inside the four corners of the
Security Council.
Determined to uphold their lies,
When blood is shedding bitter tears
In my palm, I know,
Dreams die fast.
