Life No More




Shrouded in a mist
Clouded by fate
The sky of my dreams
is beyond the gate

Amidst the transparent hue
It gives me a view
Of the canvas I painted
Which somehow got tainted



I wonder what that is
Those black lines across the art
Are they tears mixed with pain
Or did I use black paint

Where are the colors
Those strokes of valor
The outline and the shimmer
Alas, there is no glimmer

Nonchalantly it tells me
" You will now see
The canvas get ruptured
The dream get butchered "

At the altar of life
Hope is forfeited
No longer a dream
Is left to be greeted

Amidst this ritual
Where life tore the fabric
The killing is mutual
Life too is vanquished

As I fall into the abyss
Perhaps never to return
On my lips is a final wish
To once more see the sun

Can I wipe off the stains
Can I gather the remains
Washing away the guilt
Can I unfracture what I built

You started it on a diff. note and ended it with another! I mean, why did you divert midway? Had you been able to continue with the flow and ended the poem somewhere midway, I guess it would have seemed more deep. Nevertheless, this was just what I felt, nothing serious :P
