In the complexities of this transient world,
You see faces masquerading bubbles,
Which choke you, inside they’re empty.
Empty like a vacuum.
I learned it from that pages, yellowing.
(Their ink now evaporating.)
Shocked with the electric tales
of Entangled false brewery.
Mastering in creating cob webs.
They are black widows, which sting.
They were anopheles which sucked the blood.
They were bladder worms too, that inhabited
Deep, deep inside the muscles.
(don’t consume it)
Until they vituperate and castigate.
They were such brutal ferals.
Disguised as sheep, as diety.
Believe them not on their mockery,
For they are entangling black magicians.
Jinxing and putting curses.
Come out of this deluge,
Come out before the sun sets.
Break the cage, come out.
Plague shall fall on them eventually,
For strings delicate, conducting gratitude,
Pride, honor, mirth…
Dissolved in their aqua Regia.
There exist then reprisal, reprimand
from the universe’s law, channnelising
and running this world that has an obdurate gaze on everyone.

    1. Thabks Pramegha. Always my pleasure to hear from you.
      I am wondering about your name’s meaning, megha means rain, sandhiviched karne pad, pra??


      1. Oh my God. Hats off to your parents. Naam Ka asar hota, kuch Hadd tak. And you must be very emotional right?
        Just read your latest post. Trust me don’t believe that there is block, or anything. Follow keep it simple stragedy. Btw it was really well penned.


      2. Yes, I am very very emotional!
        Sometimes I get terrible mood swings.

        But now I am curious, what is the meaning of your name?

      3. My name is Aquib which is an Arabic word. It literally means last and final ultimate, but my name actually is inspired or named 😁 because it’s one of the name of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him), which He pbuh was attributed as Aquib.
        Yeah. I hope I conveyed.


      4. And luckily I am the only son of my parents rest are my two elder sisters. May be my parents thought this.
        But I figured it out myself. Lol


      5. I have heard it from hearsay . But I really dunno for sure.
        All that matter is personality, conduct, good action etc, all these good stuffs.


      6. That reminded me of a tag line I heard.
        “if you are bad then I am your dad”.
        Thanks for the compliment though , the feeling is certainly mutual.

      1. Cyber wolves, yes, that’s the correct term and it’s all to serve their pseudo romance mentality.
