Consenting Agnostic

On a wickedly splendid day we sang, To higher powers within, As the sun rose through – -The Dark that day; A fear within me sprang. I went right home, And fervently prayed, For the fear in my heart; to remove, And the beast on my shoulders; to slay. Pages from the Holy Scriptures, I tore and plastered to my walls, And, the Red of Forgiveness, I showered in, tall. Paraphernalia, paraphernalia, Yes, the Heart…my […]

Mother: Rosa

I know of a woman who lost her child; And with him, she lost her mind. Her speech is loud and unrefined, Her soul a space left undefined. Her hands draw patterns, up in the air, And trace along some unknown hair- Hair that once belonged to her child; He, to whom she cannot confide, Her fears of loss, and thoughts of grief. He who lived, but all too brief. He, who was her young […]

The palisades

And only through death do some experience joy, A freedom that was to them but alien -before- But is now within their grasp. They stand above the planes of morality and human cognition, Like apostles sent from an ethereal world; To shine light upon the darkest of human fears- Of his own death; Of the cessation of his conscience- The conscience created for, and filled into- His shell; His person; His Life. But even a […]

To understand why everyday struggles are short-lived can be a cumbersome task, but alas! those problems matter not in the end. Pain, however, is an emotion that all beings feel, and its understanding is of dire importance.

Long and hard I have fought for you, Through nights’ obscure I have strived, To land upon these shore where you, Slept calmly through the night. When the light broke next morning, you looked at me and screamed, You asked me how long I’ve been standing there, I replied, “Four years”. You picked yourself up, dusted the remains of me on to the floor and walked, You didn’t stop walking till you reached the next […]

Symbiosis with darkness

She’s moving. Slowly. Breathing. Quickly.Inching closer and closer to death. The air is now heavy. Heavy with smoke. In a bar she walked into, Giving up on hope. Their eyes now staring, Their mouths, whispering; Grave and unholy things of her past. Her fingers are twitching, Her heart beats fast. She moves to the counter, And orders a glass. The air is now frozen. Her body’s like ice. Blood flowing smoothly, Like a bottle of […]

L’oracle

Darkness withdraws, The symphony begins. Light takes form, The choir sings; Melodies and serenades, In praise of their king, And all those figures who are of his kin. Love and hate go hand in hand, Through great storms and through the sand. A bittersweet chord floats through the air, The melody drops like a cumbersome affair. Do I move on or do I just stare, At the bleak emotionality deep in my lair. Forgive and […]
