Fallen

a poem by Bharath Krishnan

Broken down
from the heights of happiness
falling for ever
I can’t seem to stop.

Going back
to the periods of luxury
of the abundance of friends
I can’t seem to think.

Why is
this passage of ruins
forever dark
and long and long.

Reflecting back
this will go on
till the light at the end is seen.

Eternal Beauty

a poem by Bharath Krishnan

Only you are truly for ever
A luminescent crystal of light
Crushing the energies of the adumbration of darkness
Subtlety is the power of your unyielding might.

Everyone everywhere yearns for you
Show me those who do not
You reflect and glorify the beauty of life
You are truly for ever.

Body so smooth, your heart distinctly hard
The passage of time stands defeated before you
Epideictic for the privileged few
You are truly for ever.

You are the object of greed in the many stories of life
You are the object of passion in some
You are the object of perennial possession for people everywhere
O diamond! You are truly for ever.
