resurfaced echoes

signs cautioning all around

buried things undone

busy chasing old shadows

going around and around

memories, keepsakes

regrets, things not all settled

regrets, things not said

looks beyond hard cold marble

perpetuity

Just like dreamers do

Conveniently losing place

Just as dreamers would

Explore people places time

Return cold reality

Until the Day Comes

Alms of Peace and Amity

Becomes Norm of All

Ignoring Dark Tones

Language of Love and Peace

Brightness Overwhelms

Low Dark Sky Threatens

Fury of Storm No Mercy

Earthen Expanse Waits

Deluges Bane Released Full

Light Hope Renewal After

The Prisoners

Senseless Violence

The Prisoners

Looking warily out

gated windows,

the

multiple locks

are merely symptomatic

lined down

thick wooden

doored domiciles

lining block after block

in the cities

of the

damned

eyed the moving

shadows

ever threatening

out of exposed corners

without fail

fingers point

never realizing

own responsibility

towards  long

dormant

a languid awareness

now where

only

accusations exist,

long a slumbering

people

ever completely unaware

of  already having

been imprisoned

by our own societal choices

staring down at our own shackles:

apathies

addictions

preoccupations

senseless violence

murder

rape

hate

prejudices

drugs

alcohol

ignorance

intolerance

religiosity

haiku

 

(1)

turning a blind eye

towards what mostly scares you

utopian dream

 

(2)

apathy runs wild

desensitized walls up high

blindness convenient

Colours Once My Scheme

Mixed Among Life’s Broadened Swirl

Open Eyes to Finish
