The bridled Horse

I am like a bridled horse,
Not just by size nor strength
But by the uncommonness
Called a common sense.

I race for truth without fear
To the finish lines of life
Worrying not of what comes next
Carrying the weight of the world

I unsettle dust, galloping around
Where the wild dogs bark
With salivas that come as flood
Killing togetherness in the honeybees fay.

But diligently on my back,
I run miles and task all day
I know a time shall come
I would be unbridled by the hay.

Corner of pain

Slow music plays at the backyard
Dragging the heart further behind
Further away from a lover’s border
Destroying all there is in a frontier.

Looking back at all that transpired
In the days before she ever cried
It is but all so crystal clearer
That she boxed herself into a corner.

Sonnet: Mr. Beneficent

West comes before the east
I know of not many men
Called Mr. beneficent;

He is always pasting list
Of big and small issues…
If you search for his name
You see it at the least…

Humane in character
Philanthropic by nature
Selfless in his thinking
Altruistic in his doings;

Standing deep at the south
Or at the extreme east,
Is where you will find him.

Sharing depression

Dead are the days
Of the secret diaries
Like the hoots to owls
Twitter is to the bird
None of these make sense..

But we all keep sharing
To the rabbit holes
We call the internet
The beautiful side
Of our mortal life

Hiding the webbed legs
Of a floating duck
All always seems well
Blowing big kisses
On pictures and videos

Creating bundle of hoaxes
Tagging and hiding
Our broken teeth;
And deep inside us
We are a heap of pain…

Yet we share information
Just to feed the brains
Of others watching
Making them feel
Our lives are better…

Then in turn, they repeat
The trend of gesture
Taking sweet pictures
Of sunlight, hiding heat
And passing depression.
