FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

Displaying joyce-huis-280788-unsplash (1).jpgI can hold your hands till you bleed

till your soul is absolved

of all the sins and predilections

till your skin is wiped clean

off all the scars

and voice is cleansed

from all the expletives

to get the searing pain

washed off your soul

I can wait

till the blood is wiped off

cleansed and scrubbed off

from every single pore of your wretched skin

we can hope for the love

we can hope for the light

but the battles are never won

it is an unending fight

I can hold you in my thoughts

till the crimson sun

bleeds in the skies

and the horizon is tainted red

with its scars

I can wait for you till the ashen moon

rubs off the scars of its face and

renders itself pure

I can wait till time finds its wriggling tale and

bites it deep.

I can wait…

Dichotomy

Megha's World

alex-6723

Paradox continues
life sustains
seeking company and solace
in a crowded room
oh! the fallacy remains

Striving hard to search for
the eternal soulmates
within a
relationship of convenience
the contradictions sustains

Vows made out of blood
and eternal bonding
witness by the many
the deceptions remains

Blessed and pardoned
by the holy grace
and few pennies
in the charity box
the elusions pertains

Being born in the
land of mortals
seeking a sinless life
at the horizon
the illusion remains

Heading towards the
shiny mirage
tumbling towards
the inevitable and certain
death
yet born with a pure soul
the aberration remains.
