SUICIDE IS SOLACE
under pressure of a bad reign
falling from cloud of my soul.
My eyes – as a desert is now a pool.
I didn’t call for it. Your friend –
ripped the sky under my skirt.
Look into my eyes!
Lest this pool breaks & flow like a river –
drag me away from your sight..
The moons have grown old.
The rose you gave me has bowed.
My finger thirsts ring from you.
Why did you allow dews at home –
turn this love to a flame?
Remember how we kept our love burning
in midst of winds,even in the rains…
I learnt you tied a knot!
Your tears will soak & loose the knot
when I am gone. You are a coward.
In your imaginationyou stabbed your friend…
at this juncture, you left me.
There I’ll find a solace in suicide.
My body on which you severally swore.
You -sight from afar in blinks of ambulance
& run afterlike a man on the street without clothes.
