Harish Mamgain is passionate about writing. He loves poetry.


A Mean Demure

A thought, a moment, an idea
Is enough to be a cynic, a saint ,
Or a killer to week havoc on the earth

A word , a glance , a tongue
Is enough to be a lover , a foe ,
Or an ascetic to renounce the world

What we need is
A lithe sclera , a wide look ,
And a soft glance to hold on to life

A hand caresses so tender
And it throttles like a devil too
A heart longs for love
And it turns into a dagger to hurt

A guy picks nectar out of life
And he turns pollen into poison
A wind hurls soft smiles
And it tornadoes a whole world

A life elates in currents of awe
And it endures torrents on end
A birth brings up a boon for guys
And it melts swift into the mist

Life , you are dense good
And you are awesome bad too
You are a deep zion we die to build up
And an ace abyss too you are

How can I ignore and go my way
You are a mean demure
Who makes me mad
And you are a lush frowzy
Who keeps teasing like hell
