The Magician

With an outburst, he rushed
Tears gushed
His tiny feet
Cover as much ground they could
As he rammed onto her breasts
And glided into her lap
She lifts his face up
wiping his tears, she smiles
Eyes talk to one another
And he smiles too
Peace was met
The magic was done.

For those who find it abstruse, its a poem about a mother and a child.
My inspiration to write it roots from the mother-child who live besides my house here. On a rainy day when I was peeping through my window, I saw the boy storming furiously towards his mother as if he just witnessed a ghost. It was a matter of seconds for the mother to put the smile back on his face.

In a dark room
amidst the halo of smoke
Ruminating over life
left so sullen, so morose

Talk to that ghastly spook
It calls itself silence
flouting at me
sans feelings sans words

I cry I weep
'Please don't let me alone'
As it says good-bye
With the promise to return

Leaves me tangled to myself
Exasperated in sweat
I feel a shudder run through
Of the agony never felt

As I try to put to death
Myself, with a stroke
Wish to die someday
In the halo of smoke
