Life rasped, heavy beats of tired wings
The cradlesong stripped on myopic choices
The dark wept, as rage lost her brittle sanity
And days retreated to their foetal curl of horror

Life at quantum’s edge, tears don’t have partners
The fangs of rabid memories rip lucid moments apart
Winners keep their game on, retreat in disownment
And the innocent fall, their shelters violated

The slow slither of revulsion haunt the portals
Lose time and days on shackled promises
Secrets drag their feet, their stagger from sagas
Everything burns, the disintegration of purity

A mind stoned by the keepers of sanity
Angels in cages, their wings clipped bare
It’s a very fine line between the living and the dead
As the keen of destruction works from the shadows…

    You have penned this with the brushstrokes of one who knows the pain behind the words. I had to go back to this poem to read it before I read Dark II.

    This is definitely a beautiful piece of work dear friend Bindu decorated with powerful words. Your Poem shows the power of your words with some of the most striking lines/ quotes, "The fangs of rabid memories rip lucid moments apart"; and again "Tears don't have partners". You are really amazing and thank you once again for your kind comments on Christmas Poem. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor
