A Discontented Soul


Excerpt from “Echoes And Consequences”

A Discontented Soul

The stroke of my extinction
was the deep red scenario of torments
My body and breath were utterly frozen
The beating heart was trashed into fragments…

My ignored blindfolded questions
were searching for the rays of answers,
Unraveled mysteries were echoing inside my mind,
My solidified tears were whispering that I was a wrecked human being

Jumbled helplessly in my own adversities,
My desires became like the evening departing sun,
Ferocious winds steeply retarded my velocity, and so my ultimate defeat has begun…

My flashing sharp edge of the glory
was blurred by the rust of radical impatience,
The ship of my scintillating dreams
was seemingly sinking in the ocean of wistful ridiculed voices…

Inner eyes were looking at death’s knocking door,
Plundering me to die in Jet black;
I left my body without grabbing my determined goals,
and became soil as a DISCONTENTED SOUL.
