Sinister Who?

The walls stand mute, as a silent witness

burying within them, the many untold secrets

political debates, economic planning,

macabre massacres, cloistered dungeons,

wars lost, alliances forged,

the clinking of swords, the trot of horse’s hooves,

strategic conspiracies, victories celebrated,

stories of greed, love, power and nobility.

History lives here with the ghosts from the past

the eeriness comes alive under the moonlight

yet, the dead do not scare me

as much as the malevolent humans of today!


Tweaked one of my poems from my book “Eclectic Verses” (Available on amazon), which I felt was apt for Sadje’s what do you see prompt #35.





Woman Placing Her Finger Between Her Lips

Her temples throb

the din of vitriolic memories besiege her,

the ominous scars remind her

of a dark hideous past

haunting images circling her mind’s eye

with no signs of exit,

sucking her into a web of

emotional despondency!
