Satish Verma

A leap into death bed. 
The water of life 
had sucked you dry. 

Tracking a subtle sound, 
I was chasing you 
in the jungle of untruths. 

You being in the crowd, 
I was locating the god’s 
vision in failing lights. 

Who was hiding behind 
the torn pages of 
scriptures? The words 

had started bleeding. 
O, my god, the man was 
going to defile a beast!

I laughed. Was I suppose to laugh? it was the incongruity of faith and holiness vs. spoof on context and I had to. I still find it funny, just not ha ha exactly. More like ooooooooh Satish! - Loved it - Stella
