Heaven’s Hymn

praise be to thee, oh darling moon.
for yours is the sweetest of all lights in my cradle
and yours is the gentle aria of sleep and peace
praise be to thee, oh sparkling sky.
for yours is the greatest of majesties in my heavens
and yours is the wondrous gaze of humanity
praise be to thee, oh radiant sun.
for yours is the warmest of passions in my throne
and yours is the splendor of gold and glory

Hypocrisy

Can you see
In this light?
So bright
So bright

Light casts shadows
On your heart
Light casts doubts
On your mind
Light casts fear
On your soul

Can you see
In this light?
So bright
So bright

Empty faces smiling
Empty hearts grieving
Empty souls lurking

Or so it seems…

Can you see
In this light?
So bright
So bright

Blindfolded we see
In a world full of light
On deaf ears we hear
In a world full of sound
With no tongue we speak
In a world full of voices

No evil here
No evil there
No evil anywhere

Don’t you see this light?
So bright
So bright

Circle of Freaks

Harlequin

Decked in red and black, my weary heart laughs. It is not a happy laughter, but one full of bitterness and spite.
Donning clothes of bright scarlet, it hides the bleeding with its smiles. Masked with giggles and tricks and everything up its sleeve.
Draped in dark cloth, to hide the stains on its spirit. For this love is corrupted.
Delving into self-destruction, my broken heart laughs to itself. For this love is its doom.
For this love is its pleasure and its happiness and its insanity.

We do make a fool out of me.


Strongman

I know you can stand alone.
I always have.

But you see me as an obstacle to your freedom. You flaunt your so-called independence in front of me, in an obvious attempt to tell me that you exist as an entity beyond me. I got the message. You break off all bonds trying to keep yourself self-reliant. 

Well, I’ve had it with you.
You can be all strong and independent alone.

Why did you even enter a relationship in the first place?
To show off your strength?


Acrobat

Swinging and swinging, we twirl round and round.
But we’re going in circles.
Reaching new heights, we smile at the crowds.
But not at each other.

Walking on tightropes, we walk together.
But the tension in the air is killing me.
Hurtling through skies, we defy death.
But we are in danger of breaking apart.

We flip and we tumble and-
we fall.


This is a response to the one-word prompt Circus from DailyPost  😀

Coat Hanger

Malignant tumor
I condemn you to death.

You have cut off my bonds
Wounded my pride
Stolen my body
But you will never break my will.

You started as unease;
Giddy I fell
To your whims
To your desires
To your beck and call

Then it never came.

You took away the normality
You took away my freedom
You took away- him.

Oh how I want everything back.
Including the pain.

Now you crawl inside me
Punching and kicking
Fighting for your life.

But you won’t succeed.

Now that he is gone
Along with my family,
And I am broken and alone-

I have nothing left.
Except you, ungrateful wretch.

I have fallen-      but you’ll fall with me.


I am not promoting abortion here, folks. I do agree that it is necessary in some cases, where the mother might lose her life, but for the most part, I frown on such actions.


I hope you’ll never have to fall as low as is described above.

The Flower’s Song

Loves me,

I count the petals in my hand
and think about the times we were.
The petals fall from my grasp
like how the time slipped through our fingers.

Loves me not,

I think about how you smile
How we used to smile together
How there is nothing left in your eyes
like everything is left in my heart.

Left me,

I wish there could be an us
Just like how there used to be.
As the petals fall, so do the tears
and they all fall down.

leave me not.
Please.
