    Tragic traditions

    Viscous limbo, can't break free
    Moving stillness, you can almost see
    Unfreezing so slowly, listless lovers
    Cut off mid sentence, silence hovers
    An endless night descending so slow
    From the fringes, did the darkness grow
    Creeping into those frozen hearts
    Extreme views to central parts
    Standing out is the tradition we leave
    Just be loud, no matter what you believe
    Scream and shout, accuse without doubt
    Divide, distract and all decency flout
    Not modesty, humanity, not laws, the spirit
    No agency left with a shroud of grit
    A legacy where the truth ceased to matter
    When facts gave way to words that flatter
    The art of manipulation, dangerous days
    Tragic traditions paving the ways
    New world order, tolerance just lost
    Traditions we leave and the future it cost

    ANIMOSITY & GUILT

    (M)memories do cast a dark cloud above, that can follow you for decades.
    (E)everyday that is given to us is a gift, do thank your God for that.
    (M)my days are filled with animosity & guilt associated with memories.
    (O)of course it's all made up in my own damn mind, as my family tries to convince their selves.
    (R)right or wrong they don't give a damn & really never did.
    (I)inner workings of my mind, show me flashes of what was brought upon me.
    (E)eternal life, not many understand that's what could be & is.
    (S)simplicity doesn't come easy folks, if so I wouldn't have such nightmares eating me alive everyday.

    Memories fade through each lifetime. The lessons learned are everlasting.

    Kindness

    I'm standing near to the sea of lies,
    My secrets are stones
    Tightened to my ankles
    With thread of hope
    And everyone is waiting
    To watch me drowning
    But nobody want to push me
    Should I thank them for their kindness...

    Entangled

    He moved quietly around the old furniture
    Through the silent sleeping house
    The moonlight shone in and lit his way
    Other than him there was no movement, no sound

    Stumbling up the stairs he went
    Cryptic silence filled the home
    He wondered if what he was looking for
    Was with company or all alone

    He clicked open the door and entered the room
    Creeping in like a seasoned thief
    She didn't lock it today he thought to himself
    In strange mild disbelief

    Often he stumbled home late
    In a drunken disheveled state
    Today he found the bed empty
    The bed alone but neatly made

    "I free you today from bounds and promise
    From the shackles of being sane
    I will be long gone before you read this
    Away from you and the pain"

    He read the note in a state of shock
    Then slumped onto the bed
    Grateful he had enough booze in him
    To numb the pain and stupor he felt

    Come the morning, sun rays seeped in
    She was ,like she said , long gone
    Him, death found in his drunken sleep
    For him there was no dawn

    Tragic was the twist of fate and luck
    The breaking point for both the same
    She chose to flee to end the suffering
    He chose to die to forget the pain

    Love Story

    He climbed up the cliff till he could
    See the meeting of sea and skies blue
    Heaving and huffing he sat down at the edge
    There was pain in every breath he drew

    As the breeze from the sea touched his face
    And tears welled up in his weary eyes
    He couldn’t understand why it needed to be this way
    Why was there so much hurt in goodbyes?

    She was my other, my half, my mirror
    My love, my friend, keeping me sane
    With her gone, there shall never be another
    Happiness now can only be feigned

    She was a part of my soul, my life
    We were one beneath the blue sky
    My heart in pain is a heart ripped apart
    I no longer wish to be tied to life

    Without her I can see no rain, no clouds
    Life has lost its tune, it’s reed
    Without her I am all but lost
    Never again to be free

    With that he got up and stood
    With his back to the cliff face’s edge
    Jump he did refusing to live without love
    In the end keeping his pledge

    Some love stories are long epics
    Some a tale like Juliet and her Romeo
    Theirs was a love story like no other
    For they were one in happiness and in woe

    Lost in reality

    We were never meant
    To find ourselves
    At verge of end
    To new beginnings
    We were supposed
    To stay, to live, to look
    Together at the vast land
    Appeared content
    Living satisfied
    With undying love
    To wear smile
    To dry tears
    To fight battles
    Holding each other
    To never for the tomorrow
    Live and love in today
    We were supposed to fight the reality
    Break the stereotype
    But we were never meant
    To be strong
    We are yet another example
    Of tragic love

    THE UNTOLD TRAGEDY OF INNOCENT ANIMALS
    .........

    Zoo a space dedicated to the display of wild or exotic animals,But how is the life of some innocent animals there?

    You can see the reality of humanity

    Xenoglossy they have to speak the language like human

    Watching the cruelty of humans they are harassed

    Vanity of humans keeps innocent animals hostage like slaves

    Unity of animals does not work in the cage

    Treat them brutally like no value of their life

    Shackles also gyve the hands of Innocent animals

    Restlessness life of innocent animals who live free in the forest

    Query fills with terror The mind of those innocents that what will happen to them in the next moment.

    Primacy is not in the harass of innocents life

    Out from the torture they can't far themselve

    Neglected the humanity show cruelty yet are called human

    Mentally harassed also the voiceless animals by humans

    Luxuriance of humans life destroy the life's innocent animals

    Knowing their weakness,humans take advantage of the vulnerabilities of the voiceless

    Joints of humanity should also be ​with innocent animals, they are loyal

    Ignoring untouchability we should treat animals well

    Humans should always fulfill the duty of humanity

    Give it a try to be nice to wild animals

    Frauds with the animal you will not be happy ever

    Ensue by deceit, animals are killed for the slightest greed

    Dignity of animals are symbol of respect in scripture

    Consider yourself as a human when you behave like humans

    Brutally torture animals there are demons who in the form of humans

    As you keep increasing the limits of your cruelty, one day you will have to face that torture yourself

    ..........
    By taking his breath, became a living corpse of his will
    How did life stop in the hands that became worse than death?
    If you are speechless, what if you can scream?
    Looks like a human but the throat of humanity has been stifled
    The hands that were hunting were spread out
    Didn't even take life but became lifeless.
    ..........

    FIRST OF ALL YOU ARE HUMAN, THEN KEEP THE FIRST RELATION WITH HUMANITY

    I was born for aristocratic and tragic things,
    under the sky of failures and victories,
    beneath imperial, golden sun to live.

    I was meant for exquisite and anguished life,
    in my veins run a noble blood,
    but i only drink a bittersweet wine.

    I was born underneath the brightest star of misery,
    the crown I'm wearing so shines in glory,
    and it looks too burdensome with catastrophe.

    The moon is a tragic figure. She is doomed to love people and remain when they die. She is doomed to encourage humans, to give them parts of herself but never remain whole. The moon has infinite love in her, because despite her tragedy, she still sends you hugs from the sky. She is far, yet so near, always. She is beautiful and kind, and since there will be no other moon, doomed to be lonely. The moon is doomed, because her love rests with mortals, she is fated to love them in her solitude, and weep without tears when they die. She sees stardust sprinkled all over the Earth, and dead bodies in the sky.

    You're so tired that you just wanna swing down from the ceiling.
    Cause who cares?
    Even if you're in a relationship or single,
    You need to care for yourself at some point.
    But quite astonishingly,
    The moment you make yourself a priority,
    People start to think that you're nothing but too self-consumed,
    And are blind to your follies.
    Is that so?
    Or are you trying to prove me wrong so as to justify yourself?

    Hey, it's alright if people don't understand you,
    Ik it hurts you cause your entire life has been wasted in being a people pleaser.

    That's alright you know?
    Atleast you get to know the real faces of the actors.
    Each one of them deserves an Oscar.
    All you did was standing up for yourself,
    After butchering yourself up,
    Trying to blame yourself for the fault of others.

    You're your own assassinator.
    And look at how you're treated.
    It's better to be heartless,
    Than be trampled by a heart,
    That only attaches a stranger's feelings,
    More than its own worth.

    Life is full of drudgery and shabbiness.
    People listen to your stories.
    All that you've been through in life,
    Only to respond.
    Not to understand.
    Cause again,
    Who cares?

    All those fantasies should be stuffed in a tattered filthy pocket.
    Those stories that sing of life's rosy moments,
    And garb the wretched ones.
    Because readers don't enjoy a tragic end.
    They want mirth to fill their cores.
    Cause sales supersede content.

    Honestly, I ponder,
    Staring at my moist window,
    Why was I born,
    Only to stifle my tears,
    Behind a plastic smile?

    Bridal Fool

    Tonight I'm the bridal fool
    Alone and waiting for you
    I confess white ain't my color
    But its a color like no other

    Why are you being so cruel?
    I've waited all night for you
    You said that we would meet
    Alone in our honeymoon suite

    Could you be somewhere, out there?
    I hope that you ain't dead
    Then my best friend calls me
    Saying that you ran out on me

    I act like I don't care
    When it really fuck's my head
    Why do you have to lie
    Especially on our wedding night

    All this time I was faithful
    An' saved myself only for you
    I'm hurt and feeling vengeful
    I want you to hurt like I do

    Tonight I'm the bridal fool
    Alone and looking for you
    I confess white ain't my color
    But it's a color like no other

    I'm about to lose my cool
    Yet what can I really do?
    I sit in a whirlpool of ruin
    Until my fingers begin to prune

    The bitter poison I consume
    An intoxicating, toxicity
    It's easier to understand you're scared
    It would mean at least you cared

    I sit alone in my hotel room
    Why does this happen to me?
    You always had bullshit reasons
    Blaming me, for you leaving

    Is my reality just dreams?
    Cause this can't be my life
    Nothing is as it seems
    How could this be right?

    I'm the bridal fool
    Who's now done and over you
    I'm going to have a honeymoon
    With the first man I meet
    I'll lead him where we can
    Be alone in my honeymoon suite

    I'm the bridal fool
    I just got a call from my husband
    He said he loved me and missed me
    I'm sorry I didn't get back
    To you any sooner
    I stayed out all night alone
    I just needed to think
    He said, after the wedding
    My brother died
    He committed suicide
    He left a note telling me
    You're not the only man who
    Loves your wife
    I couldn't take the pain
    So I ended my life

    Wuthering Heights!

    If all else perished! and she remained, I should still continue to be. If all else remained and she was annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger, I should not seem a part to it.


    "May you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you--haunt me! then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe - I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"

    Addict

    I'm an addict addicted to addiction/ stuck in a war of conflict/ on a not given a fuck mission/ too high to know what I'm missing/
    People get hurt event throw I'm the one biting the dirt/
    I talk about work but never having a job/
    I dont search because I live like a slob/
    Spending all my money on drugs and stealing my groceries/
    When my rent comes around I'm so high I have no worries/
    When my landlord kicks me out I'm like why is the world against me/
    My selfish decisions have me lookin at priorities threw blurred visions/
    Every opportunity that goes passed I miss because I'm stareing at the glass/
    And it doesnt matter if its thc, PCP, heroine or amphetamines/or
    I'll do anything as long as it takes me away from living/
    Been committing chemical suicide/
    Since I was 25 since the divorce with my wife I've lost my will to want to be alive/
    Sometimes I drink and drive/
    Until that one fateful night/
    I fell asleep at the wheel/
    Crossing over head on with an impact I couldn't feel/
    When I came too I was in handcuffs being questioned/
    But I couldnt remember anything due to my concusion/
    After a night in the hospital/
    I was told I was being charged as a crimal/
    Because my car collided with a jeep/
    And killed an entire family/
    That family was my sister brother father and mother/
    So my life is over and I killed my only support/
    Now I have to face the consequences in court/
    Life can always get worse never forget this/
    I have four life sentences/
    All because I couldnt quit those substances.

    This is a story influenced by a friend of mine who is currently serving four life sentences. This is his story.
