Analysis of Eyes Closed

Sight fades of a soul so nice,
Directions all shut their eyes, ho wise.
Strongest of the gone, gone lustful meets,
Review in us all the visions oh! visions.
Season's clutches seen not defeated,
All made caught, so caught and set apart.
Scorched, so scorched days of the soul ho sharp,
Stings and stings as a scorpion so harsh.

William John

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in the primary classes, I wrote stories, dramas and poems in Malayalam.While studying in high school classes I wrote stories and poems in English. Then it grew in me as an endless blessing craze. I do write in English as well. I do write stories, novels, dramas and verses. I have written more than twenty thousand poems in Malayalam, about twenty novels and more plays.In English, now I have completed more than seven hundred poems. I think, very soon that it will grow to at least a five thousand. I am so much pleased and thankful to those nice friends who go through my poems all over the world and shower the rain of horripilate congratulations. Yours,William John(Email: fan page : more…
