Rising above the mayhem and chaos of the world

They outdistanced themselves as the world burnt down in ashes.

While the crowd below in distress whirled,

they laughed like devils witnessing the havoc they created with matches.

Stepping over the wreckage of caustic reality

they bounce up to the blue.

Floating over the clouds of smoke

they feel nothing but placid and true.

Sparkles in their scintillant eyes

flicker of the fire ignited within.

Taking them higher and higher,

letting the obsession get under their skin.

They fly high for they wish to see the top view of the world.

Burning everything they own as they near the stars.

When the fire flames higher like their proud flags unfurled

they finally thirst for the sapphire blue oceans to dip their burning carcass.

Feeding their cravings for sapor and high

they torment their souls brutally like a thrall.

And now that it can take no more

they brace themselves tight and allow their frame to free-fall.


About SK Rajeshwari

I am an incurable bibliophile, dreamer, writer, poet and connoisseur of all things beautiful. This blog 'My Cosmos' is my first love and nothing pleases me more than constructive feedback for my write-ups. My second love is books. I am an insatiable and roly-poly bookworm. Books teach me how to explore the world inside me and the ones that are outcomes of someone else's unadulterated imagination. What beautifies my existence is the endless walk I enjoy putting on those shoes of imagination. Step into my world, feel my poems and allow your wandering soul to be hypnotized by the fragrance of the captivating manifestations of my dreams, experiences and imagination. Allow this feeling to creep into your being and let your nerves speak the language of beauty and artistry. Bienvenido :)
