Disastrous freudian slip

If you see a lonely bunny
Spilling a load of baloney
Don’t believe her red carrots
Grew on a love cut from same cloth
Until the ocean of passion
Ceased to flow in one direction.

I know her and I know her well
When I was there, I couldn’t tell
Not until she said she loves me
Pointing fingers away from me
Calling me her other man’s name
Adding fuel more into the flames.

Lost in the city

Rowdy, crowdy and busy;
Yet absolutely empty.
Such a pity to dwell
In such a lonely city.

Looking so beautiful
Incredible outwardly;
But within is a volcano
Consuming all he knows.

Not even an Angel
Nor it’s white shadow
In the corridors
Or retrospect in his life.

Blankets and pillows
No longer hold the cold
Tearing and creating holes
Freely at its will…

Through the window
The same cold blows
The tears on the pillow
So the cycle continues…

Lost in loneliness
He has no one to run to
No one to cry to
No one to care for.

Showers of unfulfilled Desire

Showers of unfulfilled Desire

Showers of unfulfilled desire,

Emperor of ire

My most bitter fury.

 

Open red anger

Love-stone owner

All

I set my eyes on.

 

Promising,

Bright and beautiful.

 

Dreams, keen reality;

Welcome home

Casualty arrived,

My hope has set her eyes on setback.

 

Up,

Down.

I look lost in expectations,

I count moments of my

Unreliable tossed coin

I await for.

 

I know trust is dead,

Don’t remind me

My confidence is lost,

Dependence missing,

Faith gone astray,

Reliance lifeless,

Stock now mislaid

Hope is no where to be found.
