The ticker conveys breaking news…
There has been another factory fire.
This city will gasp in shock…
Till the next one, a familiar satire.
Trapped in smoke,
Burnt alive in minutes,
Or death in stampede,
Humans reduced to numbers, in bits.
Each unit loses a hundred hopes…
A new dress, a family visit, the baby’s smile.
Yet another accident, yet another ticker…
Just killed a thousand dreams, in only a flicker.
Why do you instill fear
in my noble spirit
with your penetrative stare?
The glare, those piercing eyes of yours,
seem to read
the secrets of my soul.
I may never know what they mean
or what they mean to cause,
after I am left in a trance.
I cannot decide
If those eyes doom me
to a future I cannot escape from,
or, if they protect me
with the glory of an esoteric vision,
from the harm of the world.
This fear, anxiety, reverence
Coming from a mere memory,
As you remain far away.
Yet, those penetrating eyes of yours
Have never left
The vicinity of my soul
Wherever my super awesome fairy godmother shall fly,
I will gladly follow ….
the blue wisp of the Mediterranean air,
wondrous trail of the fireflies,
springtime in Half of the World,
the blue doors of magical beginnings,
or just a cozy apartment at Haw Par Villa…
There is a reason I find spiritual people to guide me,
hence need more time with them…
for wisdom to be exchanged.
Yet,there is no reason for love…
wherever the wonder woman shall fly,
I will gladly remain her shadow.
