Poetry Drinks De, Songs Sing Me.

Words burn out of their spirits

As an old man spills philosophies

From inside a closed bar

In the bulky pages of silence and innocence


Wind foretells the humming stories of truth

As I ponder upon the sacrosanct lies

That with time has stained humanity.


 Rocks and sands sing songs of the feeblest ones

While rains drain their sorrows in the might sea

I didn’t write poetry in words

I didn’t sing a song that has no life.

Poetry drinks me, songs sing me.
