To miss a loved one, to challenge the vacant 
To suspect that this is all an illusion
No dad’s love, no loved one’s presence, 
Delirium fevered, tossed and obsessive

I swat at my realities turning skeletons
Incessant fears, they raise their dark hoods
They get kaleidoscopic in my matted hair
I am just another pair of eyes, stalking the void

These walls mutter their raging spells on me
Their silent screams drown what I have saved
I have screeching nails scouring down my sleep
Is all been so long, since his dark death

Thorns on torture, I still look for his body 
Where do I put away all my love for him? 
His life got over when he wanted out
Some flowers they bloom unsung and unfound..

    Your love for him is an expression, a palpable spirit of his love for You put not his love away because it must survive in your beauty. He fuels your exploration into natural truth. The magical, ingenius way you weave, and release vivid juxtapositions is simply extraordinary! The entire 3rd verse is an education on thought forms encompassing sharp, yet compatible contrasts, WOW! "Thorns on torture..." pain atop suffering, pain is at your command in this masterpiece my Diva...J.A.B.

    The loss of persons close to us cannot ever be forgotten...maybe softened, but it's always there at the back of the mind. Yours is a very strongly expressed write filled with emotion. take care. // paul

    Your Poem reveals the grief which hovers on your mind Bindu. If it is based on any real happening it is too sad. Have the courage to face life in its varied colors. With best wishes..Ravindra
