The Agony Of Words


bismillah!
don’t run away my alphabet,
don’t!
my abc
my xyz
come! come!
o come my alpha
my omega!
colour of the rainbow
rhythm of wings beating
cry of the lustful butterfly
come to me o ships sunk in the sunset!
run to me o shadows in the night light!
my abc my xyz
my muse
my torturer
my heaven my hell
come to me, come!
o words o words o words
stab me!
burn me!
dance with me in the sweat of agony!
la ilaha illa ‘llah
la ilaha illa ‘llah
om mane padme hum
o words
o words
o words
o christ!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
