I Am The Escapist - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

I am the escapist,
Who drinks potion of surrealism
From the goblet of a cold fossilized life
And runs aloud touching the fence of wind.

I am the escapist,
Who still worships redness of heart
And sings lullabies to the crescent moon
Under black and blue rainbow of civilization.

Yet this escapist,
Never wants to escape death's call
And dreams to rebound with holy spirits
Above the zenithal core of vacant universe.

Topic(s) of this poem: hope, hopelessness, imagination, life and death, spiritual

    Perhaps somewhere down the line we are all escapists. But indeed we cannot, by any means, escape our ultimate fate... A very, very well-written poem Sanjukta... (Report) Reply

    This poem presents a surrealistic picture! Here I see incongruous juxtaposition of out of the ordinary images!
    'Drinking from the goblet of fossilized life' suggests much! Profound write Sanjukta! A 10
