Lighthouse

is-7

dark night sailing 
in the violent sea
sharks of ego 
and 'me and my benefits' boundary wall
pirates of peace
tides of pain and rejection
shivering winds of malnourished hearts
a sense of complete incompleteness
consciously unconscious!
everything in the middle of larynx
difficult to shallow
the whitewashed wall will show
the cracks of unperceived truth
today or tomorrow 
the crescendo of misery 
unbearable now
roadblocks of fear
fear of being a maverick! 
thank God 
sighted is a lighthouse!
emitting the light of Almighty
rays of universal love
overdrive is looking inward
did we?

    I am just amazed by this write of yours. Brilliant!

    My favorite lines-
    ‘sharks of ego
    and ‘me and my benefits’ boundary wall
    pirates of peace
    tides of pain and rejection
    shivering winds of malnourished hearts
    a sense of complete incompleteness’

    Love reading your work.

    Way to go… let the Sharks be at the bay and the walls be perished. Allowing self to be engulfed by the tsunami of consciousness lighthouse. .

    Very nice

    This was awesome! I especially loved the “sharks of ego” and “pirates of peace” part.
