We Will Not Come Back

Was it a death trap?
You were staring unblinkingly
at the black hole.

I will not play with
the dirty words. I will pray
you shouldn't make it.

The child cries. Wolf
gets away with a big chunk
of flesh of earth.

Over Your Dream

When I pined for
you, you were lost in open
space. Something―

Dies inside me
daily. I watch daring fall
of pride to kill sun.

Let it be dark now
on this side of moon. Clouds
cover the shame.

Satish Verma

Watching A Miracle

You want to go
extinct, dying of love
hormone. I will

Be strong to honor
the dignity of the human
patience in flames.

It hots up. The wild
conflict, between give and
take of god's kiss.

No Complaints

Moon was looking
in my eyes. Time to sink my
ship coming apart.

Sunset was visible.
Don't want to give a chance
to write off pen.

Ironic. Shifting
away from peace. Why turn
to black hole?

Satish Verma

Between Whips And Tether

Listen to silence
of pain of heart, where
sun cannot reach.

Write to me a letter
in calligraphy. I want to
sleep in words arms.

I will not explore
any relationship for any
amorous signs.

Travesty Of Truth

Lips collide. I
smear the memories on
your forehead.

Will you wake up
one day for me to rewrite
the mercy of wounds?

How shall we meet
before or after the demise
of cooling sun?

Satish Verma

The Saga Of Breakup

The sage of tree
sits cross-legged under the
shade of dilemma.

Would you pray for
me when the thick forest
of hope catches fire?

Between mantras and
peace, comes the bifid tongue.
Half truth and half lie.

Satish Verma
