silence just smiles

dried silence like dead animal hide
cake of baked blood thick inside
cloaking the being still long after
the undress the caress and the kiss
.
smell of freshly squeezed honey
readies its long manicured fingers
to dig in and touch the sprout to life
but fumbles, fails, retreats
.
trapped inside, the beast roars
the silence smiles with silence
the blood, oozes in the warmth
the sprout screams in the darkness
stumbling about inside the seed

Awesome. This is vintage Shoonyata. Dark, deadly and dripping with black light, like a huge arm of pitch-black lightning. More sunny stuff? Don't even try!

Sahyadri, your profile pic looks curiously like where I hail from. Good shot! Welcome to see a similar pic on my blog. Shoonyata, your dark side rules.

finally!!!

thought the aliens got u for good!

ur back and this is reality

hey, why doesnt the beast ever make its way out? why is it always subdued?

Shoonyata said...

M: thank God that not all of us are the same!

Ra: mon ami, aliens still have me. this is a ransom message they have allowed to be sent :)

and on the beast...best it lies subdued...even though this reporter had broken news in this space a few months ago (you, me and the beast) that it was found breaking shackels and causing havoc !
