Vikrant Jog

Rookie (26-01-1994 / Kalyan)

Subrogated…


The glass of ale,
And smoke in hand,
The bosom of madness,
Now,
The fumes of fury,
Have I turned hopelessly alone,
Exerted the pressure,
In a liquid embrace,
To chase and kiss her shadow,
Drinking the sorrow,
In the ode of ale,
Licked the turf of joy,
As the flashlight in the sky,
Hybridized senses,
Tried to cut the nerve,
Understood…?
You may love but stop expecting…

    Powerful, magnetic, laced with unquenchable sadness, at your reality of sometimes love is not returned!

    I understand the concept of subrogation, perhaps the exchange of one creditor
    for another(alcohol ans smoke for her shadow) but then I become lost.in the flashlight
    of the sky(moon?) ...not understood and it's connection to loves expectation? ? ? (Report) Reply
