if your unseen
and even to breathe

The smell of you
taints my nights
and touching skin
my pure delight

Exquisite this love

In the dark corner
of the narrow lane
helpless and hesitant
because she’s dumb

That insane 
laughing on her voice
scratching her body,
and  innocent face
blackened of
taints of madness.

never reaching the buried spirit

Into the white, clustered rice
Stepped on…

 It slips out of my hands

Five weeks now since
Your permanent departure
Internal thoughts conflicted
Forever reminiscin’
Your heavily influenced overture

Peppered with pain and misfortune 
life’s basted in a glaze of fear.

See human folly
That taints stormy seas

See silly notions
In blind emotions

See profound disguise
That confront the wise

See a lucid light
That puts all things right

See a feeble man
