Vikrant Jog

Rookie (26-01-1994 / Kalyan)


The glass of ale,
And smoke in hand,
The bosom of madness,
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,
You may love but stop expecting…

    Sir Thomas, ,
    The flashlight is used to create a satirical treatment...

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