Reviving heartbeat

Paint my lids

A streak of teardrop

On backdrop

Of laughter

Getting worse getting better

Changes unfettered

 

One o One

Metamorphosis

Lessons learnt

Pupils burnt

The eye a raging fire

Knowledge a pyre

 

Flame to grow

Prometheus dam

Holding back

Rivers rage

Wisdom for none to assuage

Aching of the sage

 

Shape my buds

To taste of honey

Flowing slow

From the flow

My chest now filled with the glow

Breaking point of seams

 

Riddled dreams

Orange tangerines

Bitter sweet

As I eat

Core and more through flowing streams

The memory gleams

 

Whistle low

Softening the blow

Drunken feet

Take to street

Where we strangers known will meet

Reviving heartbeat

Words come easily

The saying a treachery

For gullible minds

 

Phrases rolling off

Like boulders from a steep cliff

The tongue honey’s tool

 

Hypocrisy’s school

The pupils aligned like bees

Their uniforms sleek

 

Loving heart is meek

Sweet tongue-tied and faltering

Its messages sparse

 

Lying heart is weak

Its heartbeat a mere tremor

The voice compensates

 

There are sweet voices

They distill poison like milk

Double code their craft

 

Neither here nor there

Lost in the realms of the void

Traveler speaks not
