And he eyes you like the ravenous-vulture,
He circles around your quivering self.
He knows your secret so,
He wants to witness your eyes water,
Like a raindrop that voicelessly descends from the shrub,
He wants to see you crawl into your shadow,
As you do upon the night’s uncaringly warm shelter.
Glance at the helplessness that has befallen you;
Does anyone know of the seriousness of his heartless voice?
The one which you imagine skulks in all corners
so you avoid it like sunlight to Ashrays.
His roomy existence creeps into your sleep,
and like an Angel can’t steer from heavenly virtues,
you can’t escape your nightmare.
His weapon the past’s wickedness on your life,
leaves you in the open of this waste where he sees you…
The power of your defense is crippled like
auburn remains of the autumn’s harsh gale.
Your only strength now lies in the fuming of your fury,
