Meer Durriya

M`am mapping your Sky against the sky of the
Dying light I try in vain in making out your
hazy appearance,figure of Flame!
Alas!the dying dewey sky stretching out end
lessly miles after miles w/ an endless Pain
of impotent dye
M`am I miss you so and sigh for a sight of
you I keep waking up night after night
alas!in vain the Rhine rhymes for the runners
of fake lives that don`t give a dime in
differenciating betwix Beauty and Bile
The ecdysis of sadness-sunken-sights
soaring higher and higher above the Heaven
Of "seek-and-hide" the same that go for
Dipping,digging in the abyss of Peace,
wilderness,wise,wide;Hey m`am mapping your
Sky,against the sky of the dying light
I try in vain in making out your hazy,hazel
face of fiery disguise-figure in fire,figure
in purple price-a love perpetual
