Nightmares

Nothing but joint suffering and loneliness

In this dark world where happiness is a crime.

Ghosts of my sinful past are moving closer,

Hissing their frightening warnings of karma,

Torturing me as they walk into my realm,

Making me breathe the truth of my every fault,

And letting me see days of bliss and pain’s clash,

Recreating my kept moments of crying,

Emptying my soul. This heartless black magi

Slowly creeps; drenching me in its impure rain.

The structure of this did not restrict you--on the contary--brings out very deep poetic intuition...

WISH I COULD DREAM FOREVER


Selene, enchantress of the night,
Chain me with light
To this wonder –
My dream’s zephyr.

Let me drift to a paradise
Where no one lies,
And no disdain
Runs through my veins.

Whisper me Endymion’s curse –
Zeus’ spell verse,
So dire sunbeams
Won’t fail my dreams.
