Stigmata

Remnants of the blood

Oozing free

From my wrists

Open palms where there were fists

The fruit in the tree

 

Of life’s shades

We gathered sunsets

From rewards

To regrets

One hand gives the other gets

Highways from the skies

 

True shun lies

The wayward promise

The point miss

Take to spades

Buried corpse Heart to liver

The strong deliver

 

Two coins

They twirl together

Synchronised

Symphony

One dark weight one light feather

Alternate abodes

 

Fear erodes

Semblance of the faith

The meek wait

Their weight stance

Of the pathways in between

The dark and the sheen

 

Love implodes

Where humble meet wrath

Princely names

Playing games

At peaks where torrent explodes

Wuthering waters

The gowns flow

Like rivers of lime

Committed

The seventh crime

Nine gates carry to the rhyme

That unfolds in Heart

 

Renewed start

In seasons squared root

The owls hoot

To the moon

They speak of wish dead too soon

In folds of the night

 

Brief respite

Encounters of lips

In the dark

Shadows lisp

Unheard names before the lark

Chirps to the unseen

 

Ravens bleed

Velvet of the night

They hop low

Like a crow

Three blackbirds join in the show

Clipped wings fly too slow

 

Consensus

Gleaning compromised

By free will

Flown downhill

Through the aisle like corpse reeling

Loss of the feeling

 

Wrapping up

Loose ends that flutter

Gifts resist

Grim gutter

Words that Heart will not utter

The fornever more

Each of them

Unknown mother’s son

Their graves white

Their hair cut

Their tomorrows spent in night

Their haunting timeless

 

Lily white

The stone on the Earth

Trace of them

Fading slow

With the last pieces of bone

Replicating loss

 

The tears dark

Blackwashing markings

Rimmel lakes

Connection

The soul a weary bundle

The struggle to sigh

 

 

She awaits

Hope within bosom

Her plaits neat

Flowers strewn

She had kissed him to wane moon

He will call in well

 

He lies deep

Battered and lonesome

His clothes pressed

Upon his corpse

They had sewn in his blown feet

He walked on a shell

 

 

They crawl wild

With the gnawing news

Inhaling

Exhaling

Orphaned dreams set their dark fate

The falling children

 

The love lost

Three times blown over

Ghosts hover

Angels weep

Her love so deep now asleep

The forever kind

 

A twin loss

Her womb now empty

She stares blank

The walls smite

Like those silent lilies’ sight

Her wish? to be blind!
