Lamentations of The Paramount

I look at myself and wonder,

How beautifully you’ve destroyed me.

My eyes, once filled with pride and defiance, now

Don’t even have the courage to look someone in the eyes.

With spirit of lion, I once ruled the jungle, now

I can’t even find my way back to the den.

 

And I look at you, amused, wondering

How proudly you’ve set me on the road to destruction.

Arrogantly chopping my hands and poisoning my breath

You thought that you can survive on me by mutilating me.

For now, you have forgotten me, but time will come,

When others will remember that

I am the mountains they climb to overcome their fears

I am the horizon who challenges their reach

I am the ocean they wet their feet with

I am the real friend they all seek

 

They’ve been choking me; they’ll realize that

To survive they have to keep me alive

And then my friend, I will be born again

Not rejuvenated but somehow revived.

Cigarettes and Chocolates

2199070-vvvehwym-7

Come save me, please

It’s dark here and cold too;

I’m afraid of

What this silence can do.

Chocolates? Oh, I’ll never ask for them again, and

I’ll never cry for cartoons while you’re watching your football game.

I’ll stop crying; I’ll be strong,

I can bring your cigarettes now; I won’t be gone long.

I’ll mop, I’ll do dishes and I won’t play,

Just take me out; I’ll do whatever you say.

I’ll stand quiet when your friends visit us

Trying not to act strange.

Dad, I’m just five years old, and

I swear I can change.

White Lilies

Cupid and Romeo

“Sarah weds Paul”

It was written on a heart-shaped spectacular display placed just in front of the main entrance. I looked around readjusting the flower bouquet I bought for Sarah caressing her favourite white lilies which I placed myself in between the bunch of lavender roses. I am not so used to these kind of parties and right now I feel like I don’t belong here, but the fact is I could’ve been anywhere in this world but I am here. I see happy faces wandering around food stalls and tasting everything they could, filling the stomach which they wisely covered under their well sophisticated suits. I see blabbering mouth talking everything nonsense from how they decided to pick this particular dress to wear for this occasion to how they are going to spend their summers this year.

Every time I breathe my mind says ‘man, collect you shit and…
