We’re strangers tied inextricably by words conferred,
the spirit of festivity permeating our innate proclivity ,
to feel and reveal a gratuity in the hope to elope to
simpler times when purity wasn’t quite muddled in obscurity.
So here are warm wishes my friend that we may transcend
and redefine humanity by dispelling smokescreens of vanity
into thin air so we don’t have to care that the souls we bare
are vulnerable in a way that makes us want to stay
Inextricably linked forever. ~ Tryst with fiction
.
.
So I sent this to a fellow poet for #instapoetsecretsanta2017 hosted by @herheartpoetry and @artlixirpoetry . It also seems to work for the tag by the super talented @kylethompsonpoetry . There is no tagging ahead in this one so just enjoy the read. 💞

A little of me goes a long way by the faith you place in divine grace
To harness the might of the universe to ignite your plight
And tip the scales just right to give flight to your dreams insight.
So when you fall, rise and stand tall against my wall
For unlike the cosmos with energy neither created nor destroyed
It takes only your belief for hope to be conceived from a void. ~ Tryst with fiction

Writing, erasing, rewriting our story steeped in white lies with the conviction of a culmination sublime,
We stampede through, fixated on the whimsical promise of tomorrow, grains of sand tangible ticking away time.
Our pages crinkled with wear and tear, abandoned for the colours of shame they bare,
Carry the depth of our broken souls in their shallow paper folds; velvet blue ink we try to efface in our race to an ever after space.
Perception deluged by a fog, suspended betwixt a darkling reality and starry ephemerality, we choke on a smog
Of gratitude evanescent and hope pulverised by the fire breathing chimera of an epilogue iridescent.
.
.
So I’m having a tough time writing both time wise and don’t seem be in the right frame of mind either and fear the tags may be burning me out so please bear with me if I take my time to get to them and also if I haven’t quite done them justice. I’m getting there slowly. .

You ooze blue devotion for Krishna when all I crave is the red essence of Kali,
Adorned with a garland strewn with sinners’ heads, I desire bloody glory
With spirituous libations mingling with goat flesh ablutions
I yearn for the sin buried under your skin lustrated by the azure baptismal waters of the Ganges
Your asceticism chaste you chose in a haste over our vows sacred like Gandhi
For which virtue will gluttonously pay the price with blood over the purity of sanctity.

Here’s mine:
Dewy-eyed love eloped, racing against time to create a forever sublime
Enchanting beginnings theatricalized, painting a new life, presuming it different than the one left behind,
Fabricating a universe formidable to sustain, our paths diverged, unable to ascertain
Growing apart, consumed by our creation, love lost to permeation, we float adrift in
Hamartial rift, bestrewed in parallel universes accrued, we reaped the truth of seeds of youth. ~ Tryst with fiction

Tagged by @moonheartmind for the @tribeofpoets challenge with prompt “parallel universes” and by @communiqueate_ for “theatricalized”

Most nights sleep is withheld like the accused tortured, eyes pried open with toothpicks by interrogators hell-bent on shattering my resolve to coerce me into confession of committing a karmic sin whose dues I am beholden to or perhaps they believe my subconscious holds truths detrimental to our existence that can only be ascertained by inducing a disfigured surreality.
And other nights, sleep dangles me on the precipice of its noose, insomnia phobia rankling. So when I open my eyes, I lie, awakening demons to haunt me and when they refuse, I have surrendered an entire night to artful flirtation with my brain’s circadian rhythm that they hadn’t even coveted. And so I lose again. And this persists till the thing you fear becomes being awake on yet another night you'd rather sleep through. And the forty winks dance around me like a ceremonial fire waiting for their sacrifice.

Tagged by the brilliant @l.n.g_poetry via @phoenixsungoddess1111 for another unique tag: what do you seek when you are missing yourself. I wrote this just before thanksgiving. I’ve been finding it hard to hold onto faith, religion, all of it but I didn’t want to post this and dampen the holiday spirit. Here it is now 💝. Tagging a few ahead. Thank you @l.n.g_poetry for your fabulous tags - definitely quality over quantity 🎖️

She’s an Indian village girl with complexion wheat
Jaundiced yellow in spite of the blistering heat.
Resilient, supple skin, churned of clarified butter
Restraining sensual hips swaying hearts aflutter
She’s got mud in her bones and grit in her teeth
From working the earth, calloused hands and feet
She buried her dreams in cow dung, timber and coal
To give flight to yours, their caged wind she condoled
Her sacrificial limbs slaughtered to placate the Gods
Blood, sweat and tear libations to survive the odds
She is the benevolent bestower and the avenging destroyer
Endowed with precipice loins equilibrating karmic sin
She’s the temptress, the scourer of your predatory skin. ~ Tryst with fiction .
