DEMONS ALSO CRY

 

Beyond the crave for death

 

All I sought was first,

 

Weep-not my newborn soul

 

Where fireflies shine lighter than the lamps

 

And fishes swam faster than their homes

 

Like  trampled troubled tramps,

 

Then, demons also cry.

 

 

Groans and moans of pain,

 

Down they roam like rain

 

Memories sparked with flashes of feisty flare

 

For all that is left is nothing but darkness

 

Piercing the thread of our bond

 

That even angels dare not dare

 

Then, demons also cry

 

 

Here, days brimmed with sadness

 

To miscarriage of nights darkness

 

That even birds glide backward

 

And when asked why, we say, its nature to nurture

 

Conscience lye frozen in muss, has God punished us?

 

Que sera, sera and all go wayward,

 

Then, demons are also crying
