………….. Afraid of whom?


Coming out of the cemetry,
Faith, does not tell you the truth.
Becomes chaste innocence,
Of imbeciles.

How shabbily life treats you sometimes?
Tossing you on garbage, squeezing
your brain, smashing your marrow
and turning you into pulp.

We are all eyes, but no vision.
Ownership of a spinning pain,
does not entitle you for a liberation
and a gift of guardian pendant does not protect you.


Brutal hanging to sever off the neck
was not crucial.
I wanted to know
who was afraid of whom?

    Perhaps you question life?
    Or perhaps you question death?
    Your words eloquent and true,
    How profound, how rich,
    I'm just speechless..... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
