The Same Morning - Poem by samyak jain

the same morning,
the same news paper,
the same violence
inflicted upon
body, mind and soul,
only names of people
and place differ,

the same office,
drab faces, files
loans and non-payments,
the same boss,
his selfishness,
tortured mind
and soul
if there is one in me,

the same
trudge back to home,
wife and children,
tv, drab serials,
my channel and your news,
bloody news,
tug of war, swollen face,
hurt ego,

lying sleepless on the
undone bed,
ceiling fan whirs,
artificial sky, stars, saturn
swim back into the horizon,

unsaid, undeclared
i go back to you
and
find charms,
recalling and revisiting
the poetry narrated to you,

i
the defeated warrior Prince
in a war never fought,
hoist the flag
of surrender,
and
slowly, but surely,
your name in my lips,
into the world of poesy, you and me
and
in drowning consciousness,
i slowly
lose myself....

..atp..

    There is 'Dream'
    Unlike the same morning
    Its like your free verse
    A fantasy world.

    'Awesome mind'
    Is only the criterion.
    You have enough of it
    Go for your dreams.

    True feelings. Nice one. Enjoyed.
