Silent Prayer

Satish Verma

A manic moon 
in ethereal night- 
supplicating for a single 
cord.Not becoming unfaithful 
to me. 

An empty desire- 
in your absence, remaining 
a secret even to myself. 

Becoming pseudo, full 
of titles, that was not my 
world.I am engulfing my 
achievements away 
from you. 

As the life moves on 
leaving the bloody footprints 
on my chest.I will 
always fight my demons 
with my broken pen. 

Not a blessing I need, 
I want to remain a human being.
