Identity lost

Needless to stress
Those are razor sharp-
Pricking needles
Piercing the inner self-

An outburst of chaos
Though seems simmering
Down to a calmness,
But, with a dragon rage
Sliding up atop
The basements swivel….
Getting in…..
Deep into the veins…..
Into the nerves and……..
The hairs spring upright
The soul sours up fuming…..
A shudder, too scaring….

It’s the fear
To be human
In the pool of
Inhuman filth.

    The poem deals with just one point ! the poem holds you in suspense .Yet that single point is the essence, the cream layered by many crusts of alliterations !

      Yes, Lokesh, that’s the same point that always bothers my conscience. This just an outburst of inner confusion.
