Evening chills clasp my bones
Crushing them with utmost strength
Bringing me to shout out with pain
And to cry bitterly!
Evening chills whisper in my ears
Stories of how false this world and
The love it carries can be
Yet, of how attractive it seems
To souls while they do bask in God’s summery glow
Causing them to fall, oh so easily to their doom!
Evening chills laugh in my face,
Giggling foolishly at my tears
Mocking my allegiance to the skies
And to their word!
It shall lead you nowhere, they said,
You shall end up as a mere loser!
Evening chills prick my heart as if they were harpoons
And it, a mere baited fish!
A pure heart, seeking true love, eternal love
Everlasting love, willed by the Gods
Can only be qualified as being dull-witted, they sang!
Evening chills blow their putrid vapours into my soul
And having it yearning for freshness!
A fallen soul, fallen for the sake of love
Is only meant to rot in a world which controls everything!
From lives to catastrophes!
A fallen soul, fallen in sin, shall never climb the divine stairs!
Pray, amidst the twirling doom,
I closed my eyes
Allowing not the tears to flow
Allowing not my heart to writhe with pain
Allowing not my soul to die!
I closed my eyes
And prayed, so hard,
That a warm fire lit up in my whole body
A warm fire, kindled therein by the angels, messengers of Gods!
I shall not let the swords of negativity kill me
Whispered I in a broken voice
The skies’ word I do trust
To it I do hold on to
As if it were my oars and I was lost at sea
As if it were food and I a starving child
As if it were peace and I a war victim
As if it were cure and I, an ailing disease!
The skies’ word I do trust,
And in it, I do tend to play,
As joyfully as would a fairy in a rose garden!
The skies’ word, after all,
Remains my cause, my meaning, my savior,
Without it, I would have still been another one grain of sand
Sleepily adorning the many shores of the world,
Having no other purpose other than being
Lazily and ignorantly!
For their realisation do I wait,
As eagerly as would a child,
Awaiting Santa on Christmas Eve!
