Haunted Verses Poem by Indranil Bhaduri

Haunted Verses

Rating: 4.6

It's a haunted shadowy night,
Sailing in my dream boat
I intensely try to glide through
The rough patches and murky sights,
The brutal views help me transform
Gradually into an evil spirit,
After killing my conscience and soul
During daylight..

And then I roar with lunatic laughter
On the failed trial of silencing
The deadly whispers of Satan..
As you and me
Were turning into naked bloody vampires
Penning the near future,
Reciting the total extinction of mankind.

I know for sure,
That darkness will rule,
As I am the ugly devil,
Determined to swallow
This world with its remaining life,
To create a black haven
Renamed as Hell..

It's time to bite the dust and view,
How it feels to kiss
A devil in disguise….
Embrace the malignant spirits
And bring on the destruction
Of peaceful life..

Here I wait for that day,
When you, me and all of us
In this beautiful earth
Will turn insane and crawl with glee
As bloodshed will paint the soil
And colour the oceans red,
To celebrate the devastation done
By ourselves, all the way…

This is called Rudra Ros in Bengali, I think. But very true. Because, we are in the age of decadence where people lack sense of values as if the evil power has taken hold of us.

Amazing job. The feel of crude reality done by human beings, taking its path to destruction. Gives me a feel of looking at my mirror.

Another good one but now I'd like to see something of yours that is a little more lighthearted and fun, something funny. Readers like myself need to be uplifted after the storm ;)

Yes. I find it quite invigorating my friend! The inner conflict of a man who is in front of N number of choices (Parden my language as some 'unpoetical' words and uses may creep in) . The conflict of who we are and what we want to be. The inner psychopath inside every one! This is defenitely an exceptional poem! Enjoyed much!
