Feet Of Clay
Who am I to know 
the abstract silence 
when you drink the moonlight all alone? 
The black toes of a dying woman 
haunt me in a stream 
of white shrouds. A night 
of shattering perceptions, 
defaults and ignorance. 
Time bomb was ticking. 

It had been troubling me 
the betrayals in night 
mothering a vegetable past. 
A single finger defines 
the authority of future. 
I traced the proud shadows of a god for, 
a useless reference of illegible wisdom, 
untold misery of green waves mirrored in sky. 

For extracting death 
from life at every step 
I knew the answer. 
Dying was not a private thing. 
The truth and the path would die. 
How you dreaded the closed doors? 
The explicit fear of drowning 
in beliefs with brothers of 
sorrow and feet of clay.
