The Hunt Had Failed - Poem by Satish Verma
The symbols delivered the hunger
and desire cleaved the hearts.
Fragile peace for collective
anguish was not a substitute.
Moment to moment
truth revealed your hand.
In desperation I searched
for destiny, not path.
Inadequately I clothed my fate.
Did not believe in organised mirrors.
Less than a peak,
I climbed to happiness.
No idols, no idolatory
my passivity took applause,
indulged in deep search.
The imperishable freedom,
a road to absolute
oneness was so close,
The transcription of internal peace went crazy.
Poorly lit blood in veins circulated in circles.
The hunt had failed.
