That pain

I feel like unmasking the authencity of humankind,

as no one can trace the scars of an injured soul.

My heart mourns in pain,

as the thoughts dribble like leaves of lotus resting with water drops.

No one has the emotions of a heartening memory,

my spirit squeals the inefficacy of my misery.

I sit with great distress

which passed over with the span of time, in rain and sun.

This moment I wish could vanish

like smog as a piece of sky.

Square up with barbarous behaviour seeking stars,

this moment appears to be the longest ever of full moon covered with stars all around.

Just that the thoughts can never change the dilemma you came late,

the darkness that echoes aloud and confess the purity of the burning soul

that has been left in my heart for years.

  1. Louis Kasatkin

    Challenging and insightful,the reader will find this to be quite a doleful work akin to a lamentation.

    Editorial note for the author:
    The line ” as no one can vestige the scars of an injured soul.” I’m not sure what it is that you meant to convey with ” vestige the scars”
