English Poetry

A bubble of an ideal,
Smiling, dancing, mocking…
I turned stone…
And the bubble froze in mid-air.

    effects, motion, thrust, dynamism…
    obliterating the causes…

My legs turned jelly,
But with a thrust of will,
I grabbed my only possession,
But a bubble, is a bubble, is a bubble…

    darwin’s mutilated soul…
    got mutated into a whole…

I was left with an identity…
An individuality I wanted to rub humanity…
They looked agape at me…
Confused, lost, unsure, frustrated…

    inflation took another leap…
    and lo…unemployment soared simultaneously…

I tied humanity with a rope,
And gave it a godly push,
It ran amok, not tangentially…
Isn’t space and time still linear?

    he walked with the fetus within…
    and was groaning, yelling, weeping during the labor…

“Behold, I love you”. They grinned.
“I am thy messiah”. They frowned.
“I am thy hitler”. They abused.
“Pray, I am thy humble servant”. They obeyed.

    hatred shook hatred, love challenged love…
    and the stillness was more dynamic than motion…

I peeped beyond the horizon,
With a bubble of a hope…
Of synthesizing into a whole…
The punctured bubble of humanity.

    Vikas,
    a very interesting and at times challenging read. I like the way the lines are broken up.
    “effects, motion, thrust, dynamics…
    obliterating the causes…” – nice lines and the references to linear time and space, peeping beyond the horizon.
