Nostalgia - Poem by Satish Verma

What it was? Unthinkable:
he had become inaudible
to himself.
Intramurality in defiance?
or falling from perfectibility?

The terrible stench;
and toxic fumes rising from decaying passions.
The flesh middle age, blocked arteries
fear of schizophrenia?

Scion of royalty clapping for wheels,
shine and color
hanging by a thread of hate.

This was life without a hero.
Pacers-by caring for posters only
Whisking the sounds away.

Many in the one
nostalgia of shapes.

    With the most delicate of knives and forks, of an elven lace graced by strength, she carefully slices a tasty morsel from your eyeball, bringing the dainty meat close she sniffs your sins before she eats. (Report)Reply
