People are like stagnate rubber elasticity

with structures clinging our forehead, sweating cold sweat

Impulsive, off-hand contusions of smiles

Like eruption of S W O L L E N E A R L O B E S

A segment of Paraffin wax coating the lights on my ceiling

Mourning and screaming( inaudible noises, inaudible voices)

My windows ache the heartbreak and the candle refuses to lit the other twin

People will cleave to the formation of inheritance: soil

They are always temporary, they shall leave you like the parallax of a stigma.

  2. Wow! I love this and it’s so spot on. Love the oxymoron you apply in this piece. People tend to be fickle, as fickle as night and day. You describe this fickleness so well – people are temporary and will leave. How poetically well you pen people come and go. Just beautiful poetry!

  3. Oooo..oxymorons.May be symbolic way of representing the present mind set of people.but cold sweat ,stagnate rubber elasticity very nice.Especially when I think of stagnate rubber elasticity it represents the human selfish brain.Like they won’t think about anything and won’t respond to surrounding like stagnate piece,but still when it comes to them they show the elasticity of thinking and concerning.This is more favorite line of mine is candle refuse to light the this what society is doing.Not even helping others who need a hand.and comparison of heartbreak with window ache is so apt.Then you ended the poem saying that how the selfishness and lack of humanity do to the good people. And off hand intusion of smiles and and telling it will eruption of earlobes is very nice.kudos devika

    1. Bravo!

      You got it all correct and I am really thankful yet again. Yes the way you have seen is perfectly what I thought as well.
      I feel this strongly about the human nature and this disappearance of humanity at times!

      Glad you liked it, Kalyan.
