While Heaven Wept! ! ! - Poem by Shagun Khera

Slow death crawls beneath your skin
and you shiver with pain.
undying, undenying....
the memories of the past,
smother you off the last traces of breath
and a tear of oblivion falls down in vain..
consumed by the relentless chorus of insanity
you laugh out loud...
like a victim of suffering decree
the smiles are all fake,
with the blackened eyes
awake since a century, never slept
while heaven wept


frantic thoughts run amok
denied of rest, you choose to walk
the paths of unknown, where misery beholds,
the gateway to hell, grotesque lies behind the misty cold
the words that you speak, scream the din of disdain..
and the moments die..
like sanity in your brain
break the walls,
sack a thunder,
rattle the world,
fall and crumble,
6 feet beneath the ground, the solace awaits
to rest your life, bury regrets
while heaven wept

the angel of death
has blessed you with gore,
perforate the sky
with a painful chore
let the blood rain down on you
and meet your fate....
leper to rise from the ashes..
of distant stares
the nightmares embraced like a daughter
and wounds caressed like a son...
the cold comfort settles in thick and deep
as the heat can no longer burn....

rest the soul, to its grave forever
and all the feelings of solitude that crept
smother the pine of the love..
the fate that never met
laugh out to the black skies
and the god of denial, with a behest
embrace immortality, dead like a rotten memory
while heaven still wept! ! ! !
