The Rapist

Silently he watched her as she tried to cry,
Afraid her wail would hurt her more,
She’d gained everything in her life yesterday,
And lost it all in the shades of gore.
He felt a happiness chained to a pole,
Which he knew he would never reach,
And whilst he undressed her stealthily,
The thumps in his heart turned into a screech.
He knew he was wrong, he knew it all throughout,
He knew he shouldn’t have been here in the first place,
But happiness was money, money was life,
And the wish of a young man for an eternal solace.
Although the black mask embodied in it,
The darkness which both were going through,
She sensed a tear in the eye of the man,
As he her last piece of the garment threw.
He left her like that, didn’t bother to go further,
In came a man with a bag for him,
He took it and left, always looking at her,
And heard sounds from far of a mayhem.
Ashamed so much he was of himself,
He decided it was time for eternal solace,
And as his knife slit through his throat,
There was a wry smile on his face.

The Soft Diamond

My eyes went to the opposite window,
And I saw many shirts,
And my eyes then came across my shirt,
And it had many windows.
My teacher told me that diamonds were hard,
Yet I knew of a soft diamond,
As rare as a blue rose, as priceless as air,
A diamond which no one could fund.
When it glittered it shone on us,
Its brightness was our light in the darkest of days,
And there was a time when it didn’t shine on me,
But soon did I realize,
That it was shining all the same,
Only I had been covered with a layer of soot,
That its light couldn’t penetrate and reach me,
Although it tried its very best.

I lost that diamond yesterday,
I tried a lot not to cry,
Though around me all were wailing.
His eyes were closed, a smile on his lips,
As if he were only sleeping.
And when on my shoulder did I bear him,
I felt the same like when I was small,
When he kept his hands on my shoulder…
I asked him once to open his eyes, he didn’t,
I didn’t speak to him since then,
And the only outcome of what happened yesterday was,
I have now turned an atheist.
