Monsters

She stood contemplating
In the tranquil of
The baleful night.
Goodness got dissolved
In the dark depths of
Immorality and irrationality –
They were but decadent shadows!
Growing stronger in her head
With every tick of the clock
And there she was
Creating monsters
With a broken heart
And a troubled mind!
With conflicted ideals
And misunderstood emotions!
Ridiculed by people!
Ruptured by life!
Abandoned by her kin!
Alone in a hopeless strife!
A misplaced veneer
Of self-righteousness
Imbuing her beyond the realms of sanity
With vehement force
As they aggravated
Their presence inside her …
The devilish fiends!
Wilder, heavier, stronger
With blood on their hands
And vile on their faces;
Without further ado
They took control
And she maneuvered herself
To decide his destiny!

Him, it had to be him.
The smiling face angered her!
The sense of responsibility
Was too much to bear!
How could he be so proper?
How could he be so peaceful?
Every detail of his existence
Erupted flames of envy
And her soul burned
Her world of anarchy
Was threatened enough
To wake up the evil inside!
Time to let go …
Time to wreck havoc …
The monsters were summoned,
Breathing malice,
Itching to cut lose,
As she closed her eyes,
Shook her head,
Tightened her jaws
And wrapped her fingers
Tightly around that shiny object!

In that pitch black alley
The deadpan stillness
Was broken by the howling screams!
Blood trickled down
The garbage man’s neck
As he collapsed on the trash
Which he was about to take out.
The wind hissed.
The dogs barked.
The stink of the muck around
Surpassed the odour of sanctity.
As he breathed his last!

She was nowhere in sight!

Words of the Fallen …

I am the prisoner of my indolence.

I am the prisoner of my inability.

The stoic in me can never express.

I am the prisoner of my velleity!

 

I have been too timorous.

I have been too shy.

It haunts me thinking that,

That much I never really tried!

 

Perseverance is bliss!

Sadly I am oblivious to it!

The dreamer in me is paralyzed:-

Giving up at the first sign of defeat!

 

Shelved in my own grave,

I am the dead man alive!

Wills eroded, emotions dried up;

I am a lost soul, grayed and naive!

The Stride ……..

The waves whispered to me

As I gazed at the open sea;

Water swept over my feet

And my heart skipped a beat

As with a pained heart and a deep sigh

I revisited my whole life and bid goodbye

Once and for all to all of them

Whom I’ve tried to love but in vain!

I let my mind go astray!

The whole world was grey!

I wanted to get lost.

Let everything go for a toss.

The wind caressed my body

With lover’s bliss and rhapsody!

The distant ripples were just

Eloquent hand gestures that

Called me out and I took my step:-

The new story was taking shape!

As the world of the unknown beckoned

My wretched soul, tortured and troubled,

The cold water seeped chills in my bones

But unabashed I carried on and on.

I could hear a mystifying symphony

Echoing in my head in harmony,

So the waves whispered to me again,

This time it took away the fear and the pain,

I closed my eyes and saw the light

It was my rejuvenation sprouting out from my plight!

Let the wounds heal, let the twinge ease:-

I am the rider to eternal peace!

And then the moment arrived,

The water around me jived

To cover me up in its own merry way:-

As I surrendered myself in gay,

The world moved on, it was just another day,

Lost in the oblivion I faded away!
