where the world ends.
along the walls of the Northern fortress,
where the seam fades into cosmic dust;
I long to see you under the clouds,
where the world ends into ruin's crust.
where men's honor and regrets are littered,
scattered as numerous as the stars above;
I long to share with you, the tales of yon -
where the world ends in the recounter's show!
where the vines of vile deeds creep and grow,
from ashes of the dead to flowers of morrow;
I long to take the intoxication in,
where the world ends in memories and sorrow!
across the horizon that is blue and bright,
where the twilight, soon, spears her carmine;
I long to steal a glimpse of your leave,
where the world ends in the lone dreams of mine!
- Lakshmi Kanthan Muralikrishnan.
