Mislaid Heavens - Poem by kunjubi varghese

Mislaid heavens! You have given me

A throne of plaintive domain, a broken one,

Where groans, are whisking, from all sides.

The smiling sky with the rainbow of love

Has disintegrated and wandered away from me…

She dried up my tears with her heart touch,

Writing radiant dreams in my eyes;

Thrusting ravishing poesy, in my lips

Transformed as a withered flower, under my treads,

In the lonely path, of my poignant sentiments…

Sleep! Shattered dreams, and dissipated desires

Do not kindle insipid cloying passions any more

Do not uncork my enthralling philter.

Sleep now; fall down and sleep; efface your memory.

In the cloister of this forlorn life,

Mute feelings are effusive, but useless.

Days of blooming laughter and amusement are prologues,

And foreshadows in the journey to desolation!

Don’t cry, my heart! Do not saunter seeking dreams.

For dreams are meaningless; urges and desires

Are only nuances of the self obsessed greed, in the mind!
