Postcards from Copenhagen

A liberating city,
a intoxicating town
wide glistening smiles
not many frowns

people mostly high
open, honest, sometimes shy
few could be dodgy
shrewd and sly

Christiania, the freetown
where everything goes
can take hard drugs, but
no photos and walk slow,

nights are deep
days ebb and flow
a mermaid present
making eyes glow

Pure joy

Purest joy in the sea
Where else I want to be
Happiest moment on the shore
Just get in, lot more in store
you have billions, nothing to show
buying happiness has its limit
take your money, and just go

Concrete oasis burning

Humans worse than
animals at the gates
murdering anyone who
they see against their fates
hands are blackened
by the blood they spill
eyes red, heavens
nightmares their heads fill
without looking at faces
who they kill, they kill
innocent screams in fear,
ignored by savages with no ears

This was written after a terrorist attack in Karachi in June 2014, a city I am fond of and have amazing memories. The photos are from Jinnah international airport which was targeted and many innocent people were killed, all terrorists are dead as well.

Sight and sound of a cemetery

Are they
resting in peace
Or crying for help
down and deep

souls in heaven
rot of bones
getting rewards
buried in stones

Suffering
Hell and fire
rivers of milk
dames of desire

Repent repent
Emptiness
Feel guilty
Just nonsense

Enjoy till you die
Or refrain
Conflicting thoughts
Can’t abstain

One reality
Clear and sound
Death around
Death abound
