Fantasies And Myths

a poem by Satish Verma, India

Bleeding the planet
between life and death.
O invisible, in time and pain
I want you.

Telomere- the capping
has failed. My genes are shrinking..
The acid burnt face still
smiles behind the fingernails.

The spurious drugs will
not allow you to pass away. Lip service
was too fallacious. You never
knew how difficult it was to die.

The night dissents. Day has
many upheavals. You stand alone
in tall grass to count the flames
engulfing the sunset.
