Ghazal: Never love me (1)

To a lady who
Should never love me

I understand you;
You understand too

I once had
A message for you.

It’s really so hard;
My eyes rained so bad

Eachtime but
You failed to listen.

You never love,
… You never loved me.

I threw the fingers;
I made lot of signs

Demonstrating
A love so true…

I longed to tell you;
I really loved you,

But then you were
So deaf to hear.

You never love
… You never loved me.

To a lady who should… NEVER LOVE ME.

Jasper 

It was June’s twenty seventh day
In twenty seventeen, so to say…
Night was cold for a soul to pray
In grave silence, heads were laid.

I heard a bark, so low and slow
In my slumber, it was a big blow
I did wonder, as the sleep flow
Into shadows silence did grow.

Shortly after, the low sound
Another sound was heard
Still in slumber, I mumbled
For few hours, I stretched.

I walked outside, only to see
Jasper lying still wet as a sea
With thick ticks escaping to flea
From its drying bloodstream.

It was June’s twenty seventh day
In twenty seventeen, so to say…
Night was cold for a soul to pray
In grave silence, Jasper did lay.

A plea for help

Somebody please help me
I’m the mechanical engines
Rotating on nervy wheels
For any Henry and Percy
To ride me straight to hell.

Somebody please help me
I taste like the hard ciders
In gallons of skunk liquors
I am a poisonous perry
Whose portion rings a bell.

Ghazal: Revenge

Revenge!
I don’t care
How it’s served.

Revenge!
Slow, swift
Or sweet.

Revenge!
Common dish,
Excruciating wish

Revenge!
Delebrate
Death opener.

Revenge!
Broken ice
Eye for an eye

Revenge!
Is a world
Full of blind people.

#4 Poetry: Sonnets of Breathe

Written or spoken
In places or things
Contrarily uneven
It is by poets
But by default,
Everyone is
Born a poet.

Poetry is breathe
Everyone breaths,
As life unfolds,
With rhythm,
Rhymes and beats
Poetry is breathe,
Life we breath.
