Tap Tap, Tap Tap

Drumming on the table

Tick Tack, Tick Tack

Humming on the keys

Drip Drip, drip drip

Tripping on the sidewalk

Raindrops, teardrops

Tripping away at ease


Hush hush, Sigh Sigh

Drawing from within

A weary smile, a baited breath

Gnawing clutches akin;

To the wafts in icy winters

The abysmal depths of hades

Shivers thousand years’ deep

Welcome now the sears of sin

There there, thou soothsayer

Thy crony warnings lie bare;

Thy false silver linings, thy faulty stars

Lest you sell some other ware

The fortune tellers, the treasure counters

No one could predict

The tremors of an unbroken heart

Of infernal fires, unlit

Thundering are the crepuscular clouds

Roaring are the raging waves

The yet untainted vessel under the shroud

Quivers inwardly, outwardly raves

The wind laden with zesty life

A vial brimming with potent elixir

Longing, reaching out; rife!

Stroke, Ladle out, spew, stir!

The rocky mantle, the melting core,

The vegetational crust on the surface

The tremors hinting an impending seism

The quivers; a besotted disgrace

Each new day begins afresh

Yet Samuel thy restless ‘seething turmoil’

Bursts forth by mid-day; by end of day

Vanquishes the veneer of calm and coil

Shreds the shroud from head to toe

Spews forth the elixir, potent and prime

Conjures the fantastic on the canvas

Of dreams, vivid, surreal and sublime

Then Toil Toil, thou weary mortal

Sow the seeds of endless pain

Let crack the perfect vessel now

In loss, shall thou now find thy gain
