Defenseless and drained of power
The reason is simple, you are a victim
an emotionless being without a heart

Hell is the snake in the room no one talks about
brainwashed lackey  - screaming silence
- suppresses me with waves of steam

He trusted that writer’s block was just a lull and searched for his pen

Ink had dried for some time and his worn mind scratched for words

A lullaby or even a tristich would do if an epic eluded his triste drought

Against cruel taunts repeatedly uttered
In scornful tones one might use to a dog,
A sensitive child may be defenceless.

At school there may be damage done by those
Who do not wish to show themselves as week,
They do not wish to appear defenceless

The instant you were born our whole world changed
nothing was more important to us than you
plans for future happiness got prioritized and rearranged.

I picked you up and gently rocked you in my arms
fragile, weak and defenseless
you won my heart with...Read More

A little boy takes three faltering steps,
At one year old he is learning to walk,
What a clever little fellow he is.

Loud cheers are heard as he holds it aloft,

I lay me down in the land of a languorous lull,
A leisurely liaison laxing amidst the silenced still…
No weeping words wander upon the constructive canvas.

The day mourns the nebulous neglected nestled night,
Where the shadows sustain the seductive sorrows…
Condolences for a...Read More

Oh, a lull of stillness, such soothing calm and tranquility,
I have fallen into eternity to a lullaby-
of little birds twittering, chirping, singing above my grave. 

Among the rows, rows of graves and graves and quiet stone statues,
different birds make their...Read More

It's the end of our beautiful dream
The thrill is gone, for that reason...
I'm through loving you.

The nightingale that sings in my heart
for you has flown away, therefore...
 I'm through loving you.

There's no longer warmth in your smile;
no sparks in your...Read More

Have You Ever Tried
How dare you say you understand me
Have you swam in the same ocean
That drowned me? -- freezing, macabre

Have you ever encountered
The direful monsters lurking
Under my creaking, rusty bed?

Have you heard their voices
That command me to end my life
Whispering to wrench...Read More

Burning and blazing meteors fell on my right and left
Is it from heaven or hell, why can’t they spare me just?
Searching for food I came, not for this war I detest!

Time and gravity conspire to remind me I'm mortal and subservient to death
its approach heralded by wrinkled skin, aching mussels and creaking bones,
anticipating its arrival, I wonder which breath may well be my final breath.

The poet’s muse bides dormant till - 
Germs of thoughts and gems of words ignite -
Barren page blazed up by his quill.

Same Persona

Tho’ the soft voice has an aristocratic tone,
the haughty attitude ain’t no street gutter different:
Being rude ... dropping shade

Another bad online day made

giving good grief
With a sunny disposition...Read More
