Bona fide

Only a night beauty

curate by concealer's duty

going to efface overnight,

in morning we'll appreciate the bonafide sight.

Bare in Masquerade

Found myself there again tonight 

forcing laughter and faking smiles,

sequin lips with gilding eyes

brazen look concealing pile of lies.

Hostile ambience

I am a crocus, how can I  bloom

when the habitat is for rose

they are busy pacing back and forth

only for me the time got froze.

Misfit

From where I could gather courage

to halt my inner  ongoing rage

feeling of being placed somewhere odd

entreating for the inner peace my lord.

Exquisite branches

Blooms from the barbed branches

halt the steps of the busiest 

if you are not exquisite, 

why anyone want to smell ,

When you were born the luckiest. 

No one loiter to eulogise the branch

you grown from, does it make sense 

the beautiful dark thing curated 

only to highlight your presence.

Lost Crusader

Reverberating history

barbarity of ministery

where are uh - the zeal

shredding my tapestry 

 

discerning you, I can't

even remember- not any clue

you are lost and I was too

deserted by myself, albeit parable is true.

Allegory bereft of meanings

Every morning when I open my eyes,

found my paragons lie besides-

pulls me out of the misery, 

prompt me to make my own history. 

i'll have anecdotes to tell

about how I fought before I fell.

Itinerary

I'll   loving being a dough 

Process of something crunchy and rough 

not a whole damn result

even it is momentary though.

Paumanok

The rocks I tread on

intersperse as stones,

abnegating the presence, still

on abeyance, of cynical clones.

 

Ebb'd out from oceans

to contemplate, so bona side

beguiling it's ambience

graceful albeit languor of tides.

Immaculation

entreat immaculation for my depraved mind,

it all get rusty, used to be shiny ✨,

conflagerated inside, outlinely kind

clear my mind and light my soul wid the beacon tiny.

Inflorescence within barren

flowers bloom amid drought,

I evidenced it- when

that hard branch had delicate

inflorescence, before getting caught.

Plumes

Poised as placid lake

lingering fear keep still,

sleeky plumes dancing with- 

serene breeze to cure the ill.

Inveterate

Still hanging on the same branch, 

like I did years ago.

tree bereft of leaves, branches are barbed,

still holding it, until it sunders me apart. 

 

Too craven to enact abandonment,

or walk while holding hands,

too afraid to desert the branch

so I never did land.

Unorthodox

​​​​​​Heathers above roof

metals are covering soil, 

unorthodox way of living 

bereft of proof.

Mendacity from preachers

masqueraders evincing sagacity 

intrigues the addled nature 

to tame the creatures.

Cordial cup of tea ☕

My cordial cup of tea keeps me warm nd alarm,

without my kin, it gets cold and mar- 

amid em no inclement can felt,

in their absence even the warmest blanket begins to melt  🍵

Outset of the earth

If I was the first to born 

I may not no any truth,

nor any fib- even 

any sound of horn.

 

May not know any language 

not any nation

free of boundaries

unaware of temptations.

 

Transcend the oceans 

hasn't name yet

cant went astray

open road would all I get.

 

Death will take take me to the first day of the earth- 

I wish Rendezvous will be a great...

Precarious self

They made templates to shape and slay

Me can't fit, cause I am not clay

Snags and troubles to fit in their world just to- 

Eulogize by them, along the scars on our hands 

The hardest part is to accept ourself as who I am 

Watching others controlling nd seizing our lands.

Overrated pearls 🔹

whats the point to be that rare-

when uh can't be used anywhere 

but, as a sign of richness.

I'll rather wind the rusted wire around my finger,

nd watch other embroideries linger.

Free in captivity

Too much independence bring back vulnerability,

thats how it leave me hovering amid both worlds,

secure from precariousness- I breathe freely in captivity.

Ending of gloomy days

spring is coming again

recurring like always

portending ending of my dark days

melting my heart with warm breeze 

frozen by the craven cold

thats when beautiful flower bloom in my heart-

And I'll go back to the start.

Reprimand from beyond

Living death I've become

ambiguous, my existence for me-

waiting for one of you to come

dont let me hovering amid thee

Anomaly

Like a scar on the moon

Sagacity from the cynical clone

Monochromacy within rainbow

Treading along obscurity yet alone.

Red flood

Red lakes, red lakes 

Illicit and depraved

Disappear momentarily,

Oblivious unnamed grave

Isle

                  Isle, I once built          

           Conflagerating while I'm in.    

             Drenching my soul with fire

               and, letting my isle sinkin

Astray

Beguiled and regaled

by the masquerade

reaches the dark

whence mortality parade

as followed the shimmering ray

we went astray.

Escapism of soul

Soul became immortal,

When body shatters

Manacles of skin, are

Surmountable  matters
