De-Fence

Frozen Fire

~*~*~

The Fog had danced dense-
Making it eerily silent on the way.
The familiarity had severely dipped,
All that had hovered was the wind that was cold.

~*~*~

The trees had stood inaudibly compacted:
As if praying fixated for a Sun.
I had sat incredibly tacit-
In a desperate attempt to create One.

~*~*~

Tears had laid frozen in my eyes,
Wanting me to hold those back..
Urging me not to split anymore:
Instead resolving to give it all back.

~*~*~

Shivers had gripped me
As I collapsed like a log.
Thousand times breaking me-
Like a chisel on the block.

~*~*~

My heart now blazingly glows-
In the fire- my mind has raised.
All I need is some prayer;
An Ambition to Ramble un-fazed.

Futile Existence

..

..

Express joy seeing a new- born;
mourning at a being’s passing away,
animatedly, we lead our sordid lives-
we continue to live without a way.

waking up- at the dawn
tired, we sleep at nights.
carelessly we go on breathing:
we care not; as we live and then- die.

Foolishly, we “join” our pleasure n pain
with things external; that- of mortal fame.
Knowing your gain maybe someone’s pain;
yet, we go on celebrating in vain.

Have you questioned an unfortunate?
Why he doesn’t cry or smile?
Has he already renounced the affections?
Or is it that he has become the divine?

We dwell in riches that brings us glory,
the ultimate extravagant luxury.
We grief equally when we lose a body:
why cry when money can buy all that we need?

All we do is to breathe and live,
to survive; be mean and care for our own being.
How without a purpose we continue to live:
remaining consumed in our selfish Bliss!

Walled

..

..

..

I wanted to paint it lilac,
You painted it a mundane Cream..
I wanted to hang serenes,
You put up the pics of our wedding..

I wanted a Wall beside me, One who would stand by me-
Dealing with the things before they touched me!!
Here I am, left with the Wall I had asked for-
Echoing my sorrows back at me.

You had hugged me tight
I had quivered with fear
The Wall would tell all
How I’s held against…

As I now look at the Wall
It looks back at me…
I ask him what went wrong
And it dumbly stares back at Me..

I had stood like a Wall,
Sheltering you from the Storms…
You stormed past me,
Leaving me stood like a wall..!!

Read Post- My 1st Marriage Anniversary. I had typed this verse before typing that post. My mind had made me write this 1st before the details were typed. What I had gone through, my thoughts and the after- thoughts; is what that post talks about..

This is about Domestic Violence, torture and cruelty that remains to be an inevitable part of most marriages even now.

I, My Marriage, and the Wall. How I had wanted a shoulder to cry upon; I am crying alright.!! How I had wanted to adorn the relationship with pride; how its existence still haunts me..

The Wall had become my best friend ever-

Silently watching me through my tears

Here again- it returns to me all

A tremendous Fly after that sad Fall..!!
