Sterile Smile


Durlabh Singh

Gloom and remorse

A sterile smile

Stretched like a snare

Along the jagged wire.

Did you know the fury of my blood

Where deeds are mortgaged in duress

In darkness remote shifters of smile

Recovering grudgingly sanguine guile.

In crippled colours of cindered circles

Beneath the bowers of a thousand showers

Where animated grief has stripped away

Incongruities of the heart's desires.

Striding forward in awareness of dreams

Burdened with a pile of drunkard words

Like streaks of lightning in traces

Like crevices in some dirty faces

When the skies dripped in wintry stress.
