A poem by Veena Khurana from New Delhi

Lonesome ever,

Anguished soul of robbed sunshine,

Rhythmic mind of mournful song,

Seeks the heart the loved one,

Schizophrenic screams,

Cradling a bleeding day,

Maiming dreams of a dreaming soul,

Nibble at life until fed,

Soiled footpath of betrayal echoes,

Choking the heart shorn and woeful,

Desires wails, furtively slashing my share of happiness,

Hunger in depth for a longing caress,

Writhing wings of clipped heart,

That’s been butchered by a heart so cold,

Unfaithful promise breeds the gloom,

Stripped and naked, bleeding emotions on a thorny path,

Alone I sway, now in grief,

Vacant gazes, tomorrows wrapped in pain,

Disabled soul accompany my loneliness,

What I have gained is a tormented heart.
