Skies & Flesh, is a collection of my dark luminous poems illustrated with equally poised Surrealistic Art.
It’s a homage to every heroic soul who has once suffered defeat and yet resurrected.
Drowning in abyss of pain and blood, the poems traverse through many passages of time of darkness, betrayal, love, war and hatred. It is a world lost and found. A tale of creation from destruction and about the unquenchable dreams to swirl and chase.
These poems are born from the quest and sufferings, hope and glory, love and revenge. It is not only a journey, it’s a new awakening.
Few lines from some of my poems…
Poem 1: My Naked Soul
I could have painted a beautiful lie
But that’s not what I truly desire
How do I deny you a poignant tale
When there is a storm brewing deep within
The sea shall wash in dismay
It’s shore will shrink and die
The mountains shall fold and crumple
The land shall shake in new tremors
They all shall perish and recede
If they ever witness my naked soul.
Poem 2: Your Alluring Tales
The voyages I made inside of you
Ruptured the prism of my illusion
The arduous struggle, the dipping pain
The biting discomfort, the price paid
Poem 3: Choke in Delight
Madness is flowing
Deep in the trenches of ecstasy
Fragmented crisp dark desire
Swirl and rise like a snake
Poem 4: The Gazer
But I still remember your two eyes
Long after you were gone
The Gazer you were
Poem 5: A New Fire
Thousand mistakes made me who I am
Each layer of mine is defined
Moulded after burning in a thousand rage…
Poem 6: An Awakened Spirit
Shaken and washed
I arose from my deep slumbers
Only to return with an awakened spirit!
