Flickering Past : Its Varied Shades

This inquisitive fellow here.. serves an inclination towards reading, writing, exploring new things & much more.. ( :


Flickering past..
The shades of greys have left impressions
Darkest of pigments ornament her frame
All the blues with tints of black..
All the reds with blush of claret..
Bedecked in dark the frame stands..

Terror looming in her hazel eyes..share their tale with the pearly drops
As the shivering frame gazes the ether.. the ether embellished with sparkles of hopes

Sparkles at the farthest ends..too far to illuminate her tomb
Perching amidst the ripples of emotions..sways her palm on her womb

As the thundering tone summons her presence..thunders punctuating the serene abode
As her ears roar of the evil..this recollection quivers her soul

For the night bespeaks the truth.. bespeaks as it beheld the barbarity
As angels swirled above in heaven.. another's murdered at the hands of beast

The scars that blemish the frame.. the frame so fair as ivory
Abbreviate the heinous tale.. the tale as dark as ebony....

No matter how dark the colours of life may be, there's always a beautiful thing about colours -

They allow blending, to make them lighter and happier and beautiful anytime we wish to. Likeee, Ebony blends with Ivory to give birth to grey, grey mixed with blue gives teal, teal mixed with yellow gives a beautiful shade of green and TA DA!! That's the colour of life :)

Deep and haunting at the very first walk... Then deeper as you begin to comprehend and finally you're lost in a dungeon of colours so dark that don't seem to appear. The very tone of ups and downs you use with the metaphors, of hope once and then despair in the other. Left me paused for a moment and speechless all the time. This is what I felt while reading, because the depth of emotions instilled in those words are not in everyone's mastery to comprehend.

I really love the way you tell a story through your beautifully painted words. :)
