Love- A Free Verse

Sugary madness, a lovely
voice
The dawn was beautiful,
You held me all night.
My blank mind races through darkness and glee
But you keep me as the mended promise
I broke on last November night.
Your honest disposition, 
Your soul is entwined with mine.
You left a couple of places 
Before you walked miles.
With me.

CEREUS FLORUS. 2018.

P. S. I know, I know.. it ended abruptly and lacks a proper structure. Huh, it was a draft which got published.. umm.. Well because I just wanted to. I have to rework on this. I will present the complete poem before you very soon.

Much love!!

Nobel 2018

Knitted wishes fall into places,
One by One;
Who knows the sky better
Than a freed bird!

The melody you hear
At the top of her voice
Counts sapphires in the crown,
Broken down into a million pieces,
Shining like Venus
And, prayers to the Divine.

Far, far away
They flew her to an unknown space
Devoid of glitzy sand
And her echoing name.
There were many sold
To humanity, to morality –
Naked knitted wishes
In bloodied-ice bodies.

The dust of the pain
And her red hands
Hold whatever is left
To be taken.

Months have gone!
One memory, one story
Hidden in the ruins
Of ghostly humanity
Of ghostly morality
Is breathing fiery ashes
And, the Universe now knows.

Home Down The Hills

As summer breeze, I whirl and twirl
O’er hills, basking in the dawn’s aroma;
Reapers carry their sickles, little curled
I, behind, tailing them, lass and grandma.

Down the hills, I swoon over sweet grass
Verdant lush valley, dew drops I adore;
They move swiftly, swift as ballet chasse
I, behind, tailing mother nature, the amor.

Along the brink, I flow along pearly brook
Babbling, rushing through reapers’ valley;
Pitchers filled, the journey again unhook
I, behind, tailing blue lad, my ally holy.

In the golden farmland, I caress the grains
In joyful amity, I rejoice and ramble again;
Binding them, they sing along a melody
I, sing along, waving to reapers’ rhapsody.

•• Aa’eedah.

Siblings of the Show

Curly hair, pretty fair
He stands tall at 5’9”
Diamond face, totally dear
He smiles with his brown eyes.
Little arrogant, pretends not to care
But deep inside, he loves with all he has.
He is a glitterbomb
Of happiness and silver cheer.

Before I turned two, he arrived
Unwelcomed to a wicked sister.
He placed his breakfast plate
Joining her, she beat him, in despair.
One of us went to school,
The other sat back at home, with books.
What we shared then is total bliss.
He is a glitterbomb
of happiness I miss.

Soon, we talked and walked
To stationery shops, to parks
And to school hand-in-hand,
The only fifteen minutes we didn’t screw.
And one day, when he got lost
The search was on with
His sister leading a revolt
Only to find him sleeping
Under our own bed!
He is a glitterbomb
Of happiness and pure red.

We had our own share of battles
That baffled us at times
But, oh, we overcame all with time.
Maybe, Power Rangers and Pokémon
Or Beyblade and the Cowardly Dog
Made us a team and strong.
The fight over TV remote
Still goes on but the larger piece
Of pizza he owns.
He is a glitterbomb
Of happiness that we all adore.

Our caterpillar has graduated
Into a beast-butterfly
With a soft heart and strong self-esteem.
He holds his sister’s legacy :
After she dies, the baton will hold him.
He is worthy of everything
But only after me,
He is a glitterbomb
Of happiness, sunshine and glee.

Though growing up was a mess
With you on my side
Yet you seem to be the ray
Of hope and sunshine
In a life so worldly dark.
We might be oceans away
But our wishes would sail and fly
Packed in memories of one of a kind.
You are a glitterbomb
Of happiness, making us shine bright.

Priceless

Panache, golden, shimmering body
With paparazi tailing her everywhere ;
You steered thy mistress,
Thy paramour
To your magnificent mansion
To enormous chandeliers.

Your envious contemporaries,
Her ravenous lovers ;
1914 was the year
Of some tell tales and vague rumours.

You rode her on ancient thoughts
Via modern lust roads
Throughout Rome
From Piazza Navona
To Castle Sant’ Angelo.

Years went,
And so did your lustrous fascination.
Abandoned her soul,
Jilted her body wheel,
Once imprinted by yours.

Once chained with bondage shackles,
She lies here amid weeds,
Corpses and lust cadavers.
You left her
But even her remains know,
You’d boasted all your life,

“I owned that priceless Maserati Car,
Worth a King’s Ransom! “

Allie

Widespread land,
Red romance,
A living hell it was.
Allie stood still,
Refused to reconcile,
Stood again there
For a little while.
The conquest was complete
With beats of her heart
Pondering, in zig – zags.
Crystal her heart had become,
To be conquered by none.


Ignorance seeps in and out of dark souls, unfavoured by time, luck and resurrection. Joe was irresistible, so was Taylor. Wonderous, gloomy ; pure, dark. Two threads intertwined into each other, hanging from the ceiling, from Allie’s verbally abused throat; stood still, standstill, testimony it was!

Allie, her verses fell from arms of ignorance, failed to enamour Joe. A fruit had ripened in a soul, in the heart of a devil, a nightmare; a dark soul. A cactus pedigree she held, melancholia had made her irresistible, too. Allie, too, was irresistible.

Graves sit on blackened soil, humiliated by formless entities, all night long. Taylor’s nails wore an evening’s peaceful sunset, orange-calmness. Calm, cold and loved- dead. Joe, too, was there, leaving (in peace) his existence, all of it, to his mistress- some say Taylor, some know it was Allie- The Dark Soul.

Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles

By those who ne’er succeed.

P. B. Shelley, Ozymandias

“And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”


Songs :

Whitney Houston, The Greatest Love of all

” I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity. “

Taylor Swift, I did Something Bad

” They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one
They got their pitchforks and proof
Their receipts and reasons.”
