Came across #OCTPOWRIMO 2015 challenge on twitter yesterday and thought of posting one poem per day for the whole month of October. It is indeed inspiring to read work of other poets who are participating in the challenge.The month of discovering contemporary poetry across the globe.
Today is Day 2 and I would like to post a poem called Redemption.
Sailing through swarming sea of shrieking voices,
Shying away from moistened eyes amidst debris,
I yearned to find a crevice in the wrecked aircraft,
Find solitude in chaos and mourn my notional loss.
How one grieves the death of a strayed beloved?
Rue a loss – surreal sans sign of flesh and blood.
He, ubiquitous lie of life with prolonged absence,
She, his inevitable truth, now, in history with him.
He chose a life of treachery and lust over defined.
Challenged the destiny and destroyed the sublime.
She craved for my identity, carved on a coffin now,
Willful lives destroyed in quest of final redemption.
