Throne Of Arrows - Poem by Binaya Kumar Mohanty

Ours hectic march
on the highway
of burning pan.

Impregnated our bodies
with arrows of
innumerable frustration.

Venomous warmth of blood
in our veins closed
blazing in our costumes of nobility.

Our nerves spiking with intense
intolerance and dreams shattered.

Once we aimed at the sun rising
with a promising morn
with immense possibilities.

.....but
ended in a blood bath
and faded colors of hope and
a dark new moon of destruction.


Now We were condemned to decide
for a throne of arrows fixed
with our eyes dazzling,
our heart beating still
though not for a sun
but for a horizon
full of love and hope.

    once we aimed at the sun rising
    with a promising morn
    with immense possibilities.

    We started with new dreams and fresh hopes! Unfortunately, we are hurtled into darkness and loneliness! Our thoughts turn bitter and our blood gets polluted! Life is turned into battle...! Let us wait for a new sunrise! Great write! A 10

    .....but
    ended in a blood bath
    and faded colours of hope and
    a dark new moon of destruction.

    A long and strong longing for a horizon, full of love and hope will never go astray, sir.
    For every night dawns with a Newer Sun-young, lovely and bright.

    Thanks for entering PH Brotherhood.

    Arrows of innumerable frustration provoke thought entirely. Still a promising morn with immense possibilities. Life carries hope, dignity and trust to find love of rays of light from sun, from nature and from God. Loneliness sometimes scribbles mind to sit on throne of arrows. With due patience while you come up from frustration you feel life's light in true wisdom gained in loneliness. May God bring happiness! ..10..Welcome to PoemHunter. (Report)Reply
