Genesis

tumblr_oh0wjm4zj81qbx3vno1_500

We waltzed into hell

Clouds of forbidden flames,

A sickening scent of freedom,

Blinded by desire,

Our numb intuition,

And senses paralyzed,

We made our way in.

Here an eternal prison for us awaits,

With arms open wide,

A fatal embrace.

Genesis of the mind.

Imagine 

Imagine if I came to you
Fly across all oceans and skies and tear through the clouds and the stars
See the sun spit fire in all it’s rage 
And pass the moon as he weeps from lifelessness
What if I float through the dark forever, let it consume me and become me
Disintegrate my mind to tiny bits and pieces
Would I then be close to you my Maker?
This soul wants to leave and reach you
My dreams only show me a light that I must float to
I tried writing poems for you but my pen loses rhyme every time I think of you
My jaw quivers and my eyes get cloudy, the pen scribbles as if it has a life of its own
If I came to you my Maker, would you love me for hating you 
Would you forgive me and show me and remove the knot from my mind
Would you place a piece of your light where my heart should be
Smile at me like a teacher does at a struggling student
“Think deeply about the wonders and creation of the universe”, you had said
Drove me into madness, now cure me my Maker
You made me and the angels and the Devils and all evil
They say you will everything but you kill everything too
Am I insane or are they
They call you names and I have too but I want to not hate you 
I fall on omy knees in prostration every time do
I am insane just as you had willed it to be
And I want to come running to you
This flesh and this earth imprisons me, separates me from you
Will it that I may come floating to you
Tell the keepers of my soul that it’s time for my release
That it’s time for me to meet you
Will it my Maker and kill this prison of life 
So that I may reach the light of you
Leave the futility of earthly matters and see the absolute

How

What do you tell
The heart that breaks
When faith begins to shake
And all Reason feels fake
Existence seems a gory game
Electric realisation of mistakes
And all your hair stand on end
Shivers run down your spine
And your hands begin to shake
And your body contorts
To meet the knees’ embrace
The forehead that would graze
A prayer mat all night and day
Has now found a new place
Between two worlds in space
Blinded and dazed
The tongue that would say
Only grace and supplicate
Now stammers every time it prays
The eyes that held a modest gaze
Now struggle to detangle this maze
What would it take
To restore a broken faith
To put belief back in the mind
What of the heart that fails to find
The silver lining behind
The Misery of all time
How does The Divine
Intervene in crime
When crime sits on thrones
And the innocent fall prey
To the justice set by fate
How do you save
A stumbling faith
When the innocent pay
The price for the sins
Committed by saints
In the name of a god
Who silently watches us decay
As tyrants pave way
For eternally bound slaves
How do you save
A dissipating race

Human

Dust, flesh and bone
I began seeing the heavens
Trapped in human form
A nudge from reality
Would still not wake me
From the delusions I began to worship alone
I mistook man to be the reason why
Stars woke up to shine every night
While all along it was my Creator
Who held the reigns to the rays of light
I began imagining purpose
Where there was no purpose
I began seeing galaxies inside each heart
And I saw the devils inside each life
Always distracted by that heavenly smile
And they would lift up their eyes
And let slip their ugly sides
Dust, flesh and bone
Holding blades, sticks and stones
The Illusions would break
And the heavens would quake
And from these dreams I would wake
And a laugh would escape
From the lips that had smiled
That heavenly smile
Now mocking at my pride
Face the fate you had denied
Cradle your own whimpering mind
Bow down and cower and cry
You are but dust, flesh and bone
Standing before the Creator of these skies
He is the one who created you and I
And he created the heavens and the stars
How silly of you to think they all lie
In a mere human’s ignorant eyes

Sinner

A sniff
Of bliss
Ecstasy
They had said
I’d be free
Lord?
Do you hear me?
Now I sin
Do you see?
I have women
And I breathe
What you forbid
And I drink
To spite
The Supreme
Do you see?
They had said
That you’d see
Once I leave
To follow
The devil’s decree
But the only eyes that look my way
Are his, whom You had cast away
And Yours my Lord,
They turn away
Do you not see?
The path I walk
Should set me free
Transgression soothes my burning brain
And keeps the blood from running stale
So I sin and I sin
Again and again
And they say and say
“We’ll set you free”
A life of bliss
They have promised me
But why does the All-Knowing never see?
They trick pure hearts
Into misery

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those days

There will be days when you will want to cry but tears won’t come.There will be days where everything would seem meaningless and emotions will be hollow. There will be days when even the funniest jokes would leave you broken on the bathroom floor later. There will be days when you will be surrounded by people—friends, but you’ll be lonelier than ever. And they will try to cheer you up, and you’ll fake a smile.

Then there will be days when all you’ll want to do is be alone. Just you and your penknife. Your skin as your canvas. Your clothes damp with blood that’s been running stale.
And let me tell you, it will be on days like these that reality will hit you. You’ll be able to filter your friends from acquaintances. You’ll finally be able to see what actually matters—who actually matters.
It will be after days like these, that you will find Him caressing your soul. The fog will clear as you free yourself from that black hole you used to call life. It will be peace from the on. Eternal peace.
For no one disturbs the dead.
