Lost

Some day they will wonder
Where did all the people go?
With their dreams and deeds
Now rust and patina buried deep
Entangled in moss and froth
Was it life incomplete
Or how it was meant to be?
They find a tiffin box with
Remnants of a meal
A torn cloth – a shroud or veil
Who will tell?
Buried under the turmoil
A lost city of yore
Fallen from the map
How did it plummet so low!
The Armageddon or Apocalypse
Poisoned air or men at war?
How long to wipe out
Another city, another life;
Push a tribe from the brink
How long after we ignore
Lessons of the dead of lore?

Insanity

Hide the madness
In glowing eyes
Let them think it’s joy
Or pleasure clandestine
Let none know
The passion that flows
In your dark veins
And the mind plays games
Shuffling between sanity
And insanity that thrives
In your deepest core

Enabler

The unending scar smirks
Remnants of a battle
Where, I, the enabler
Stoked hatred and anger
Unleashed on me in nights
Black as your soul
Or, may be, I was the dark one
Living, loving the misery
Staying on, when I should
Have been long gone!
