Theme: Melancholy

Night of Mortality

gloomy night.jpg

Sea of the sky etched on
the shades of my suffocating sadness and
mirage of mortal memories melted in my mind’s morgue.
Confetti of words sleep in smothering smoke.
Nymphomaniac night reeks in fornication
In forbidden forests,
While my reflection in the glass-eyed window shatters
the seven-years fallacy of bad luck.
North star shines like a white nugget
In the desert of desires
while my love boat sinks in your body’s scent.
Spotlight of stars have been lit.
When heart hurts, pleasure pains,
scars smile, dreams dissect and wounds weep.
Kohl of night streaks down the moist, glistening cheeks,
Then radiant rainbows glow upon the palatial bed and
The sketches outlined by moonlight have erased and
pearls of tears glide down as beads of melancholy.
