Erosion 1 and 2

Erosion - 1

With a scholar eye I am looking at-

Looking at Sharpened Dream,
Burning heart burning across
Feeling the sour, feeling the layer

Is being wet tongue, gradually uncovered
vibrating lips and stick while mixing at liquor

-	A chemical compound searching for eyes
-	Searching liberty from sin
-	Burning the recipe of purity

I am chewing all the glamour with tortured eyes
Breathing fragrance; 

breathing easily passing days and nights

being tortured, told her- 
As its an erosion ; it’s a feelings

Written by Javed Akter

Erosion – 2

Sharp Sunshine ; I become anxious
sharpened me while it touches 
the ground

Like homeless lives I search forever
Blue ; blue feelings always
Walking around

Always sliding doors are crawling 
Crawling ever now and then

Kindly me; myself kind while waking up
After long night sleepless; sleeveless 
From deadly bed

Changing everything; changing backbone slowly
Steadily this side and that
Every time looking at decay

-Decay altering the sides

my feelings ; herself towards

    Congrats Javed on your enchanting poem winning the First Round at the PoetrySoup. I wish you success in the finals. You are a talented poet. I quote a Quatrain from my book 'Rubaiyat of Josh Malihabadi -A Drop and the Ocean': Men who recite their verses profound/ And in their hearts conceal a bleeding wound/ Are insight and vision of worlds beyond/ Those who translate their thoughts in sound. -Mohammad
