Demon is Reborn

DP* gets dipped 
down in the diurnal deluge 
of pompous praises;
BP* goes up
like an arrow piercing 
a heart, not apart
from the rest,
blood makes its appearance
in the tear-flow.

She smiles 
in the display picture
at her victory over the evil;
the passionate pressure
hots and shoots up 
like a volcano
inside each one of us,

Even after slaying him
the Demon rises up
like a Phoenix,
he gets life after life
from the crude impulses
we harbour,
our own blood mates
with the evils 
within the vicious circle
of feeling filthy
and Demon is reborn
each time we think ill of others

*DP - Display Picture, Durga Puja
*BP - Blood Pressure, Symbolic of Stress
