Tools

Sweat runs, forehead to toenail
Time has stopped in sweltering heat
Chores get accomplished at the speed of snail
All muscles go, all systems fail
How much more do I sacrifice for this pittance!
An arm and a limb, a hit or a cut
Take your given tools, have a go in the rut
Excruciating pain, then you stop abrupt
Thanking your marbles you weren’t born without luck

Traps of glittering sand

Hope trapped in
minuscule crystals
translucent image
of what remains

still and will be seen
for teaching a lesson
for generations to come
I was the mason

created quicksand
someone didn’t land
so soft so beautiful
can’t waste such mastery

a sacrifice made
a price was paid
my sweet darling hope
was trapped instead

forever, infinity
no even divinity
could rescue, such
is the genius of its creation

now I roam the earth
mocking with mirth
cursing the birth
of universe and time

unable to cope
such is the effect
everlasting defect
of losing hope

Cruelty and misfits

the distance between us
is nothing worth mentioning
time in between albeit
is centuries if not more

you live in palaces,
my solace on shore
admire opera and ballet,
I listen folklore

diamond, gold ornaments,
black iron is my core
thousand hearts sacrifice,
none comes to this fore

money never in torn pockets
you have more and more
few steps door to door,
still destinies apart
