Heart pulsates

Heart pulsates painfully

In the smoky reference of time

Fear factor sings the rhyme

Mutilating all the tenderness

Rhythmically with its crime

Body and mind scatters

Moves here and there

Like a salt paper

And crackles

As crispy cream cracker

Time coughs up

Its dead leaves to cry out wild

Bewilderment appears

As bread of daily thoughts

Baton of ethics wither and dead

Vultures house within

Gather skeletons

Of blood stains and shadows

Burning coal prepares

Melodies for moon and stars

Birds in distress

Fly to wilderness

Melting in pain all the way

Life as an innocent child

Corners itself, breath in silence

Keeps the house of heart and time

Unconcern for an eternal line
Anchors hopes

Blank and black will die in night

Morning of tomorrow will

Herald its funeral right

Again the green

Will come up and shine

Pump the heart

To make fresh and fine
