The old Davenport

The old Davenport stayed in the corner of the room silently telling many tales of the exquisite work of art it produced when the hands of its bearer tarried on it eons ago. And now sitting in quietude in the dilapidated dwelling it’s foretasting the possibilities of a beautiful tomorrow waiting for a resurrection and the Midas touch.

Irony

He tossed a piece of challah on the sidestep, for its brittleness made it hard to chew and he sashay away without paying much heed to the lone soul by the road, one who had freckles all over his skin. The fragile frame moved and grabbed the morsel, for the matzo gave him hope to survive another brutal night of hunger and cold

Shadows

The shadows of an uncalled past wrap around me like how my skin clutches to my bone. And all my attempts to peel the cutis away mock me with an eerie simper, and I remain in the drapes of my lost moments of love

Caught in a Vortex

Under the weight of the pale light fighting hard to stand tall in the drape of the wind, though caught in a vortex, he stranded.

Unable to Hide

The shades she wore often hid her pensive outlook, which though jutted, took shelter beneath the pretentious cover. And though the thin line of uncalled smile wrapped many untold tales of betrayals, but the shroud today had dissolved, and the drape had vanished into oblivion, for the stark truth stared through her soul lurking from the mirror of her own eyes

Slinky Unrest

In the shadows of the promenade light she walked with leaden steps, and her eyes left behind a putrid reek. And at yonder the fetid ether wrapped the world around her in slinky unrest but she wasn’t aware

The quietude crawled with faint steps disturbing the night’s serenity, for the silence in blue moonlit skies often possesses a sense of eerie.

Your White Lies

The semblance you display may succeed to disguise the world but will never blind my defiant heart, for my view don’t get smeared by the deception you shroud with your sweet talk anymore.
