By Akshat Pandey

I had acquiesced my doom,
Profusely blazed my soul;
In an abyssal, abysmal room I sat, zeroing on ghoul.
Was a falcon once, I loved sky;
Day lighting struck and I can’t fathom why;
My wings were burnt, I might never again fly;
Only the horizon I seek now
Someday…one day I will again kiss my sky;
She was quite iridescent , I am still monochrome;
Quietly did she slip away,
Like a rain drop from a dome;
I kept kissing her memories, fervidly with my lips.
My burning soul still reminisces,
Those anxious heart-beat skips.
All that I have now is just a pile of erroneous hopes;
All I can do now is zero on my rotting corpse.
