    _Twirling in Crimson_

    I kept them at a distance,
    My peers, their amity,
    For I was thus afraid,
    To be stripped naked by their decree.

    I kept them so very close,
    The filth, both inside-out.
    For I felt at peace, tranquil,
    Drowning in familiarity, in chaos.

    I was molded, depicted,
    As the sculpture they all wanted,
    Labelled, I was tagged,
    A paragon regarded, then discarded.

    Not long after, my lustre I lost,
    And I ne'er felt more numb,
    Being one among many more,
    To grief, we all succumbed.

    Was it over? Have I escaped?
    Reprieved off this mortal prison,
    Or did I give in, to be self-puppeteered,
    Brazenly whirling, twilring in crimson...

    Maybe ignorance is bliss. Or, maybe not...

    I G N O R A N C E

    I once indwelled,
    Deep within you,
    As an immovable glacier,
    Colossal, yet enthralling,
    I was sempiternal, until you forsook me,
    In a frenzied state of discontent,
    Severing all the strings that kept me unbent.

    Now I merely drift alone,
    Traipsing about in this blazing cold,
    Reminiscing, resonating with the warmth,
    That you once provided unconditionally,
    With nowhere to be, no one to care for,
    I obtusely await the hour,
    When you return to retrieve me,
    Scour away the duvets of sand,
    And lend me your loving hand.

    But you've yet to concede,
    The actuality of my existence,
    Yet to embrace,
    My dire urge for your subsistence.

    I wonder,

    Can you even guess what I am (to you),
    Or will you still feign ignorance?

    A displaced image,
    Of a love so distant,
    For those coy smiles,
    I fell in an instant.

    The one I chased,
    A being so pure,
    She shadowed the Sun,
    And defamed VIBGYOR.

    An obsidian void,
    With no devotion,
    But my eyes see yours,
    Broadcasting emotions.

    Rapturous it is,
    The sweet nectar you spew,
    For, every syllable uttered,
    Seems to be true.

    But one in particular,
    I never can accept,
    My ardour, you believe,
    Feels quite inept.

    Tried, yet failed,
    I gave you my best,
    Now you even said,
    I'm someone you detest.

    I think I've learnt,
    A lesson sempiternal,
    No love can ever match,
    Or exceed the maternal.

    And for the one that appears,
    Just a moment in sight,
    Is verily an illusion,
    A mere mirage of light...

    Life is
    An incomplete narrative,
    An unseen source of pain,
    An ecstacy so elusive,
    Nobbut a glimpse is all we gain.


    Yet, we exhibit
    A triumphant smirk,
    betwixt a perennial trail of scars,
    A blazing resolve,
    to plunge into the murky waters of hell,
    A luminous hope,
    onto the myriad truth of miracles.


    And all of these laid together,
    Veneers a rune; one born to appease,
    Immortalised; now NONE shall wither,

    For they are,

    A poet's very own MASTERPIECE.

    Every father fights,
    With burning soul of soldier,
    Trades blood for child's smile,
    Illuminates night within,
    To birth hope, inspiration...

    And that's when you realise,
    The wonderful awkwardness,
    That accompanies true love,
    In red showers of quaintness,
    Laying you as a gift-wrapped poison,
    An elixir for the naïve of heart,
    Symbolising the union of forever more,
    An ocean of anguish, tearing you apart,


    And that's when you perceive,
    You never made it to the end,
    An utopia left unsaid, unseen,
    Leaving you a billion wounds to tend,
    Scars that even demons flinch to lurk in,
    An ephemeral bliss, now long lost,
    And eventually, you see the Stygian truth,
    That all things good come for a cost...

    I may sound true,
    But I am now a demon,
    I may warm your heart,
    Just to allow it to weaken.

    The joy it provides,
    Oh, such an intoxicated feeling!
    A perfect blend, with regretful tears,
    Darling, you make me go squealing!

    Those orbs, once replete of love,
    Now glazed, void of light,
    And a pathetic cadaver remains,
    With nary a finger up for a fight.

    I may sound triumphal,
    And I know it to be true,
    But once I, too, were human,
    Before I came to know you...

    _The Dance of Macabre_


    The pieces have been settled,
    Every pawn is grudgingly chosen,
    Finagled are the sacrificial lot,
    And the entire world rooted; frozen.


    This fickle game of life is horrid,
    Only quietus awaits the early entrant,
    And the sky seemingly forevermore implodes,
    With a billion shades of red, concurrent.


    A dreadful shrill echoes all over,
    A peer to inflame a weary, sublunary heart,
    Numb are souls who spewed off nectar,
    With an urge to mutilate the Light apart.

    A Gnomic Pithy

    Echoes forgone or voices hereafter ?
    I am hardly able to differentiate now,
    In this contaminated land of sufferings,
    I am but a transient man with broken vows.

    Those words were fomented in me,
    Ones of hateful sins and obscenity,
    The choir conceals the shrill desire for the grails,
    A far cry from the stampede of actuality.

    Living are those who forage for the Purpose,
    The languid, I ween, a stalwart dead within,
    And I now descry the dark smudges of horizon,
    Muddled betwixt the venomous ocean of sin...
