A Suicidal-Mugger



A Suicidal-Mugger

 Bright faces coddle in dark designs
 They are in their pre-state
 Coals migrate from the diamond mines

 Too delicate to stand pressure and heat
 Of their unbearable abodes
 And unexhausted work of slimy peat

 Some skillful hands bring them
 In the mind-set factories
 To trim and shape in the form of a gem

 Fake colour fake shape do they gain
 For the sake of mortal yield
 Aim begins at home goal ends in pain

 In the smoky air black cloud appears
 With reddish firry sparks
 Black hands black faces and black tears
 Around the bloody stove shed all our dears

Confining himself within his gloomy closet, he has had a vast stance and deep rooted awareness of the universe and its inhabitants. With his sharp and agile sensitivity, he has a power of creeping into the bosom of things and portrays the mysteries with the ink of captivating words and brush of imagination. I composed my first poem at the age of 14. i am a student of P.Hd in English Literature. more…
