Despair

I wrote this before 2019 – a different context & mood – when we did not know about a pandemic waiting to be unleashed. Macabre, how true these lines are today, as we battle second wave of Covid19 in our country.

I see darkness
Bloom from within
Sprouting like deadly fungi
Asphyxiating our breath
Killing our senses
With neon doses of despair

Questioning 2020

Days merge into nights
Darkness abounds
In low hanging clouds
of Truth and Dare;
Who survives, who dies
What are the real numbers
Which are the unspoken lies?
Is it a viral microorganism
That kills humanity today
Or is it the murderer in man
Hiding behind another name!
