A Night Before Battle


Lying in the open and gazing at stars
Gives me nothing but the war of thoughts
The thoughts try to defeat one another
but die in vain to let in new thoughts

Shield below my head sword in the hands
my head visualizes the attack of bands
Blood rush through my head n heart
on the ground of thoughts my spirit lands.

There is no one to fight, no blood to spill
Below is the dissolving ground of thoughts
Hordes and hordes of vermins wait to kill
with no blade to fight, no armor to defend

Ground changes the colour, blood gushes in brain
The gray matter churns and creates a new aura
the pressure creates and makes me insane
Everyone stabs me, kills me to the end of pain

And I lie dead on the ground of thoughts
these thoughts become thin, start to disperse
everything starts to blur in the clinging knots
Something influences me like magic, like a curse

A ray of light sparkles and penetrates my eyes
And every creature pounds every inch of me
Stars have gone and the light has arrived
Amid the preparing comrades, lies me.....

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
