ravaged


in the skelet of
humanity
pinned another
wretch
corpses bleed, in the bruise of somebody
else

thunders,
applauds
and inconsolable sighs
emanated
from a fire destroying self constructed
homes

to the bearing, it was much more indeed
to the bullets, it was a sky beneath
and to the spectators, a show of higher curiosity
big, bang boom, "mom diwali arrived pretty early, too soon".

It was shattering indeed..What the eyes saw, refuses to fade away...the images of blood and gore.. flesh and bones..guns and gunpowder...it was an attack on the doorstep of all of us...an explosion right in our nieghbourhood...it made me feel i was maimed and murdered too with each of those who were disembodied or died...
