Elixirs that made me who i was;
of happiness, sadness and tides of lows and highs
of those tiny smiling moments
bereaved moment; interred!
The drenching heart blacked out
From ill-taints and murky fog.
Those moments that brought gleeful tears
And of those that drenches heart.
That brumal nights that quivered me
From tip to toes.
Seeing and standing at the precipice of life,
Tenebrously relflecting the rays
Rainbows; indigo, violet, orange and red,
Ah! Those ‘VIBGYOR’!
Alas! Formed at the terrain of the cheeks; swaying faraway!
Looking back hither – forth a gaping smile appeared
Seeing the dented heart,
Still beating the viscous blood
Violent and charred that turned blue.
Pitch dark were nights and burning days
Those winters full of frozen desires
Hazed in translucent misty fog
That barred cage that incarcerated me
Occulted me from the opulence
Standing now at faraway stupor
Greying pummelled by time supreme.
Things that looked bright and beautiful
Love that never reciprocated
That brother soujoured in cold,
Friends that gleefully turned malevolent,
Though smiling at them, those tiny caricatures!
As the palpitating heart trembled,
Petty microscopic belching caricature
Seemed insignificant and meagre,
Seeing garden beneath that rivers run
Those that they see not
Washed away their ill propensities done .
I stayed all night,
‘now a sunny adieu to all’
‘clearing my life’s account that you had’
Then opened my eyes in the tranquil aisle.
