become numb

thumb, sliced with the edge of the blade
slapped, cheeks red and caged
compared, obeyed to the rage
doubts on self, raised

why? born for whom? for what?
under tyranny when the surroundings are
dominant the male is praised
such miserable is the human race?

scars exist not nor can they be undone
overtime they only become cold and numb

More Such Moments

Poetry Style: Free Verse

Eyes met eyes behind rimmed glasses
Both the individuals had glowing faces
Softly his old hands interlaced her fingers
Approval reflected by her head on his shoulder
Watching the setting sun and the sea together
The purity in love seemed to exist forever
Two old souls connected not by legality
But a desperation an individual seeks
Smiling comfort was their posture language
Together they were having one clubbed sandwich
Sun waved ‘bye’ ready to join the night band
They stood up dusting each others butt smeared in beach sand
Started walking with hand in hand
Childishly they swayed the interlaced fingers
One of them was the writer and the other was a singer
Singing beautiful songs to her while walking
Her body grooving with pointed feet covered in stockings
Some salsa steps they performed on the beach
Like the childhood days they wanted to touch and reach
They passed through my eyes exiting the beach
Hope their privacy was not breached
My eyes agog to each of their moments
Thinking my old self to romantically be involved in more such moments

(While keeping eyes on the bird)
Cat: ‘Getting hold of this tasty bird is not easy. I need to make a plan. A plan which does not fail like the others have. I wish I could hypnotize this stupid dog and make him bring that bird to me. This is an awesome plan.’

After thirteen oscillations of pocket watch, the cat told the dog to bring the bird but the dog barked and the bird…

Me: ‘I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat.’ Hahaha

Started watching ‘Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries’ to reminisce the laughter on Sundays after a week’s school.
