'After The Carnival': A Poem by Parul Yadav


After the Carnival of Nova, I walked on the glistening road of silence

Entering the dark side of the moonbeam on this evil lens of life

The surreal smoke of cold winters, filled me up with seeing consciousness of the cosmos.

Heard the malefic agony of the wolves, howls that made you shiver

Heart expelled with legion of grieving spirits

whose voiceless endeavours seemed futile.

The Life's garden contradicting with the Lucifer's own Hell fire,

that grief stricken animal made

the whistles of grief.

The jealous whimpering of the wolves needing love killed their emotions.

The loses of reality, made the fireflies blow away their remorse

enchanting pasts failures of life.

From the ashes these voiceless creatures rised,

their sharp claws bewitched the dark cosmos.

Disoriented tongues couldn't tell their agonies.

After the Carnival, shadows whispered.
