Leakage/ people & us

it is surreptitious how words rain
during seasons of pain
nectar of firmaments, rising
and deluging into loops of despair
it’s the process of leakage
walking like a cool breeze.
Cold, distilled swollen branches
humming/

leaking/

inside/

outside/
open your mouth and it’s empty
hollows of ankle melting,
people leak like a morose sigh
a dripping curtain of velvet drops.
it’s the branch
running like the wildflower
cold nostrils,
the moon is sewn like a conch.
they all will slip tomorrow.

  2. The starting itself is amazing..any poet or writer gets connected to it..especially for dark writers..or when we want to get out of pain..words are our drugs…loved this line to the core..because when we are in pain..the words really flood through our minds…”nectar of firmaments, rising
    and deluging into loops of despair
    it’s the process of leakage
    walking like a cool breeze” this imagery is nice and my most favourite line is process of leakage…really really wondered with this line..you deserve claps for thisπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘…”people leak like a morose sigh
    a dripping curtain of velvet drops.”. This imagery is beautifulπŸ‘πŸ‘, “the moon is sewn like a conch.
    they all will slip tomorrow” this is extraordinary,,πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ,I mean..you expressed it like sheer genius..the above lines slowly told about how depressed person put his or her pain into words and then how he/she leaked the pain..and how the person constructs shell,how after time he breaks away his shell And slips way…marvelous pieces…actually I thought it’s short and simple..but when I go deep…I understood the essence
