that justice which engorges rationale/ a beast appears- I am a vampire (Part 2)

college

 Pale face with kohl in eyes, I am on the right…

a face with no color, pale that I become

in the evening when sun petals have scattered

amid the clouds, I walk through crowds showing

a glimpse of my crimson lips and dark eyes

.

people avert their gaze from me, I am peculiar

in the land of gentle folk, a bane, a truth

that no one stares at, no one has that restrain,

my palms are the sheets of days and nights

obscured in the mist of the now, I can’t escape,

my desires unfulfilled, words only creating a hum

.

as the night darkens and the owl hoot is heard

in the dazzling dance on the carpets, where we stand,

I wave my hands, take a leap like a doll extended

beyond the lines of rationale, lost in the moment

whence a shot captures me, I am a vampire,

“A picture please…”, “Oh! You look like a ghost”:

path traverses out, a new phase of life begins

.

is this that justice, showered by twinkling eyes

and nodes of narcissism jutting out of one and all

and same as me, deriving beauty in lonesome lies

.

This is the second in the series titled, I am a vampire. If it happens to be so and if the muse allows me to do so, I would like to continue further with it. You can also read the first poem in the series: justice wrought as words tumble out/ at least for now- I am a vampire (Part 1)

The above picture was clicked on our Freshers’ evening. The theme was: Halos and Horns. I had a hurried day and within a span of five minutes, I tried to mold my face into a caricature of the light and dark which resides in us. And “they” once again said that I look like a vampire. If my mouth was open, you would have got a better glimpse as to why that comment has been directed to me. 😉

  3. I do like your vampire chronicles (can I call them that)? Smiles. Loved the shot and the ‘sides’ of you, especially the 3rd stanza, take a leap like a doll extended, beyond the lines of rationale.
    Keep them going.

    One has to love oneself. That should be the case for the vampire. No humans nor spirits can hope to love it! Great lines HA!

  6. Your muse is dark and enigmatic ~ I specially like this part, very surreal:

    my palms are the sheets of days and nights

    obscured in the mist of the now, I can’t escape,

  7. Gillena Cox says:

    i suppose no one loves the vampire so he must love himself, but this was not the case with Narcissus, he was totally self absorbed shutting out all the possibilities for love to enter

    have a nice Sunday

    much love…

  8. You have some beautiful lines here. I never thought I’d enjoy reading a vampire poem – ’til now. I hope you keep writing. You weave a lot of wisdom into your story. Makes me feel there’s a vampire in all of us.

  9. Very powerful and captivating, it is very hard to pick a favourite part, but these lines really struck me:”my palms are the sheets of days and nights

    obscured in the mist of the now, I can’t escape,”.
    I have been away for a while, but I hope you are doing good and hope you are acing those exams! 😀
