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.

Eventualities

Please hope you are not bored
To be the different ball on board

For you were born to spring up
Not to mix with dust and dumps

But since you wish to dim the light,
And to descend for a delight

In search for hearts that harbour
A fallen Angel of glamour.

I wish you the best to find
An organic spark and sign

Please excuse my choice of word
If you find love, in this world

That if filled with bliss
Please pray… it never is,

In the perfect loving arms
Of a fuck boy after hits

I have been there trust me
It takes your sleep and meal.

Is this it…?

The magnanimity
Of infatuations
Mesmerized me
In the path of thoughts,

Thinking of the sweet
Heavenly pleasures
And the wonders
Of the rain showers

To be derive in tandem
When such a chance arise
For the expectations
Of what the body desires

That urge was greatest
But when infatuations
And the gigantic dreams
Suddenly became a reality,

It was like the thin tiny layer
Separating life and death
Loosing its great values
To none existence

Gathering experience
Eating from the big pot
Of desire to a point
I am like…. “Is this it?”
