By Pranab Ghosh


Torn body tugs at
The soul of existence

Night howls, tearing
The eardrums to shreds

Shrieks and moans fill
The sky

And the ashamed moon
Goes into a hiding

The stars disappear and the
Universe gets enveloped in darkness

Legs crisscross like scissor
Blades, mind bleeds

And the scar gets embossed
In body, mind and soul!

For how many years will
The agony continue?

Will there never ever
Be any respite?
