Acid And Flash (Dedicated To The Victims Of Acid Attack) - Poem by Hardeep Sabharwal


Now hours have been passed,
Or may be years ago,
She told, I don't like,
When on the road,
Flash of light, from a car or bike,
Make my face so blingalicious,
Monster's eyes anatomizing the expression,
As if to hold the feelings of soul,
Faces are not souls,
But souls always have faces,
One day, this Flash of light,
Turned into Acid,
The award for refusal to a demon,
The face, the soul,
The little earth and my little sky,
And all those dissected feelings,
Collectively burned,
The orbits of living,
To dance, to chirp, to joy, to achieve,
The background and foreground aspirations,
Are now only to hide,
Only to hide life,
I crave, yes I crave,
For the medieval Justice only,
A face for a face,
A soul for a soul,
And Acid for the Acid
