Shilp Malpani


Venom


The dark and light
That I am unable to fathom
Like a piercing knife
It cuts me in two halves

I beg sympathy
Cry for innocence
But I feel scarce
Burnt in a holocaust

The words hit a wall
And ripples away in sky
Occupying my dreams
Smothering me, under the night sky

The beautiful
Carries a sweet venom inside
I put my hand in the box
The red stream
Razor blades
Sharp knives
