Masked casket

Masked casket

A Poem by Latifa




painted faces
reflect the pigmentation of shame
and the strings of anger are pulling
the logic to fall

desiccated rivers of desire
found no will to revive 
I sense an
unquenchable thirst for
love , peace
and everlasting ataraxis

 in the midst of reflection
I uncover the pseudo bubble of protection
to find myself snared
in a casket of
void and ticking clocks
of delirium

yet my bleeding soul
wears the hopeful smiles
to recover
to dream once again
I depart from reality
to embark on the fairy land
of hope

Souls yearn to love and peace midst the bleeding rejections and interjections. The rivers of life keep flowing into their final destinations as reflective of humanity. Languages fill either time and motion or refill the timely experiences. The poem and the accompanying music were great...Pen on...:)...........
