Dust and Fire

Standing naked …

above silent buildings ,silent with a smile …
riding soft and smooth rhythm(non usually played in his time)
behind him stands the well-famous small stormy desk ,
deep bottomless bed, pair of shoes, briefcase and a clock on top .

Deception, ignorance, duty and doom filling room,
In everything and in nowhere, in cement and bricks,
Making walls, streets, cars, wires; dressing in grey and bathed in dust
Fed by sweat and blood, from dawn till dusk …

Standing naked …

Filling oneself, dressing one's skin  …
Caressed with saline breeze of distant sea …
arrived at that timeless moment, did not ask in
drawing on dust shapes of you and me

Under the blue breeze I set a fire
none would stop the flame's desire
to break free, to born as  new
Humans aren't made of dust,rather,
of fire. Demons too

    So creative, we always crave freedom in our own way, we need to get out of all the social restraints that cripple us. Life is all about misery and happiness, pain and love but after all we control our destiny by our choices! love you poem! keep it up
