Comments about Shanto Armonde
A Portrait Of Despair
Hair sparse, grey and weak,
Forehead marked by a life so bleak.
His bushy brows were curved by regret
Of a middling life that all would forget.
Eyes, desperate and dull, saddened to see
The joy forgone, the man he could be.
The chilling breath his nostrils drew,
Added to his grief and paled his hue.
Lips dry, lacking any color or care,
Long unkiss’d, frowning in despair.
Hands torn, scratched by tools and toil,
Symbols they were of his life of turmoil.
Shoulders shrunken, from the burden of sorrow,
Beyond waited another day, a sadder ...
My Darling Damned
I saw her through my admiring eyes,
I heard her words, innocent of lies.
I was lost in love, dreaming.
Lost in her brilliant beauty,
My heart was beating
As it filled with love, ever so slowly.
But I saw her there, from afar,
Floating in kisses and dancing wild!
