Confluence heights

Confluence heights

A Poem by tanmay7551

A faithful security guard gets corrupted and prepares a plan for the ultimate heist.



Sleepless nights without end

Vision of sunrise a leisure of past

If working hard is all that is required

I can top the list, there is no doubt.

But battle with numbers and alphabets,

Induce chills in my bones and freeze my mind.

Guarding the gates of “Confluence heights”

Multistoried boxes stand with pride.

Tea and smoke feed my body all night

Different moods and size of clothes

Costly cars and innocent kids.

I see everything, hidden and invisible.

Secrets of the rich, affairs and lust

Addicted  kinds and broken threads

Years have passed, consider it a penance

Time is now to ask for a boon.

Seed of intentions now grown into tree

Let me share disguised in rhymes.


Intentions of those heights

And mind induced fights.

Years spent in perfection

Now solid, I have no objection.

Tomorrow be the last day I wear uniform

Sunrise will be claimed, won’t live like a worm.

Lived in ocean but experience of thirst

Curtains will be raised and ice will burst.

Author's Note

I am still awake at night and security guard standing at the gate inspires me to read his mind... Unfair to him but a random conclusion.

Now this is something different. I like the story and could see it providing the setting for an action/drama film, honestly. The descriptions and word usage are tight and direct, providing some great lines. The title is also eye catching.

I like the message here as well and it's hard not to sympathize with the guy a bit. Working your butt off but seemingly never reaching the heights you want would be discouraging. Thank you for sharing!
