ABC Poem: A Self Portrait

by Venkat


as I draw pictures from time
believing in their depth
choosing grave memories
dreams, wishes unfulfilled
enchanting feelings of past
forbidden desires unspoken
gifted by an illness divine
hallucinations of life beyond
inspiring beats of high mania
jeered in society by depression
killed by fears of persecution
love unrequited, forsaken
muddled in emotional mire
nudged yet by godly angels
on course by music and pen
perfect sense in a madness
quiet reflections pouring within
rage burning in a sea of tears
subdued, as a cocooned alien
time yet, a dice in His hands
unwraps answers in a bundle
voices turning into a song
waking into a light in heart
xerosis of the past mellowed
yesterday, graced by a wisdom
zesty ‘morrows arise from its pain
