One Poem : Neha Verma

A writer’s dilemma is
a dilapidated  construction
of images
formed with words
that neither stick together
nor fall apart,
and are ready to engulf
that very existence of the bard.
The lush tranquil view ,
chirping spring and morning writers
go unnoticed.
The struggle to capture sanity and insanity ends

in tumutltous despair.

Alas! These treacherous words
Forsake the bard
when imagination runs wild.
They play Judas
And make the imagination drink
from the poisonous chalice
Killing the heart and soul of it.
Yet again
The curtain of nothingness .
Wrap the glory of the unsaid.
