I am delighted & honoured to announce that my latest poem, Naked & Rough Skin, is now available at MasticadoresUSA as well. My utmost gratitude to dear Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for publishing this piece. This is the first time ever, I’ve submitted my poem to a literary journal.
Naked & Rough Skin
Please don’t breathe on me with ease Coz I’m gonna freeze your breeze with my heat
You seem to see me as if I’m a treat But I’m here to trick your deeds with chills of my screams….
I used to wish this & wish that most of my life I used to pray to God to fulfill those wishes with my closed eyes I even sat back with empty hands & regretted this life But one thing I was forgetting all this time I tended to overlook what I already had by my side I was missing the present & was concentrating on the noise So I started to indulge in steep talks with fluctuations of my heart
It’s here I realized I was all the way so crazy wrong Coz I started to see the intense sparks on my path so dark I then switched to live from the deep in the now I can see the shining light in between countless dark spots I can sense my wish is fulfilled as I’ve reached to the sharp point I finally know the real meaning of the falls & the rise Just like the immense beauty & power of waterfalls & sunrise
The song is throbbing my inside And the heart is beating the loud sounds The moon is hiding in dark sky As the clouds are acting like greyhounds The memories are causing red sprites To light my darkish grey ground So I sit silently at late night To embrace the moment with teardrops
When I sit on my hot seat to see the lively scenes on my fractured screen with absolutely no screams, everything seems seamlessly lovely & spotless from the safe distance of those crazy complexities
Just let me be & let me breathe and let me see, if you can really see through, when I project my transparency of the transparent me through the window, that transpires the red ink into the frame of moist & mixed feelings
You see, it’s not possible to understand a single word if the divinity of this world won’t be unfolded coz the understated unknown energies are being underrated & underestimated by the human nature, that’s simply busy in blowing the overrated & meaningless smoking swirls, generated by some useless extrapolation of quite simple assumptions, which in turn takes the mankind to the senseless & rusted junctions
So many different meanings of a pretty simple thing is just like demonizing the simplicity & degrading the cold feeling after the aftermath of burning flames, when it’s very much possible to sense the unseen but still, one keeps throwing the senseless theories without actually smelling the essence of pure simplicity & acknowledging the power of the unseen energies
It’s senseless if you try to make sense of every single word separately, but if you simply sense the flow of pure energy, you’ll see a whole deeper dimension of this crazy scribbling
So do you get now the complexity of simply complicating the simplicity of simply me?
I’m ready to play this crazy game Firing shots at my mindless brain Killing the dead spots from point-blank range Freaking my beast out & the senseless rage It’s time to transform the savage to a sage It’s time to free my soul from this solid cage I’m taking the steps to change my deeper state I’m dissolving the imbalance & my wavy pain These bullets was pointing at my shaky phase It’s to awaken my senses, not to kill me dead
Dream I sleep in my shed with no sheet on my shape to reveal myself in this naked dream Skin I could sense your delicate presence and your gentle touch on my rough & wounded skin Lips The wet taste of tenderness was breathless when your reminiscence kissed my thirsty lips Sync The beauty & the beast I could reel with the tip of my screams in one single & effortless sync Beat These days my heart is burning in fire & dark memories, so I pen my art with sighs & I drop the beat Tears Longing to belong & to be can stream the rivery of my inner scene into the whispers of my lonely tears Green The thing is that I can see the serene smile instantly & sea the shine of your waterfall with crystals green Miss The pink thread & pinpricks did stitch mess & paint sick but the fact remains it’s still you that I purely miss You It’s you I mirror & it’s you I loved with pure intention but today only your reflection is left in the song – it’s you
