Two pieces from the past…

Piece I: Recent Past

I became an omnivore this year

reminiscences
of the years gone by
being a shepherd
torturing
cows and goats

reminiscences
of the years gone by
being vegetarian
repenting cruelty
against cows and goats

reminiscences
of the years gone by
of torture
then remorse
now all forgotten

dark world
darker life
no sign of the Light
I became an omnivore
this year

Piece II: Ancient Past

desperation – a rope ends it

sleepless nights so long and thin
through the window
i count the stars in the sky
search the meaning of life
desperation is apparent
and the anagram
“desperation” – “a rope ends it”
doesn’t seem to end it here
for its so long and thin
these sleepless nights
sometimes i wonder why
i see all things wrong when
i don’t see you for long !!
