I need You

I need you
I need you like the desert needs rain
Like the breathless need air
Like the flowers need sunshine
I need from the first chapter
of my love story to the last

I want to hold your hands
Laugh at your jokes
walk by your side
tickle you every minute
Snuggle on the couch
Look into your eyes
Talk about everything
and kiss your lips every single day

Evil Possessed Bone Frame

Sometimes I feel like the devil and all his relatives are having a vacation in my house  and chose my bone cavities as the perfect place to play their hit and hide games.

In these mornings, I shower in the coldness of my faith , self-medicate with doses of self-loathe and hospitalize on a bed of charred bible pages.

The eagerness of leaving this place becomes my only courage, but ‘to where’? Well, anyplace is more home than this evil inhabited bone frame.

Evil visits Downtown

gothic-paintingThe weeping winds in tumultuous sleep
Ravaged the land
Lifting cats off couches
Plunged them head first in trash cans

Lost souls erecting road signs
For their kin
The whole land in haze
As darkness deluged reality
A world floated in a supernova
Of deadly threats and wailing women

They had come for theirs
Dried skulls scavenging for flesh
As skeletal closets shivered in a corner
It was a coup of sort
As they took what is theirs

It all seemed a horror film
But, there was a girl chained
To the giant boneyard cottage
Eyes empty into space
A chant and a prayer dosage
Before her last breath
And the night was hell

I’m glad I woke up
Albeit bathed in sweat!

Apathy

I saw them
Protruding ribs
Scaly thighs
Spelt the darkness
In which they dwell
No food
No water
No family
Nothing
You call it life
They call it travail
As the government
Works to achieve vision 2030
They can’t even dream to be alive tomorrow
Life departed with the sea
And left them at cove
All that remains are living carcasses
Empty belies
And bitter bile
Famine and droughts
Pushed them to the edge of death
As impatient vultures fly by
Just waiting for their last breath
If that delays, they’ll do the kill
Corruption still ate their share of the nation
They became citizens
Indebted to the government
When I reached out
Societal apathy had scotched their entire being
So humans lie in wait
A feast for vultures
