Shishir 2018 Poems - Anjani George


Alchemy Allusions

By Anjani George


With fire I play
Like a seasoned artist

This stage my destiny
This character my life

My mind in turmoil
Relentlessly in grief

As worries intertwine
And solace nowhere in sight

But the show must go on
And I shall keep it moving

Though the flames are a roar
As they sting and burn

And melt me down slow
Cling on I shall till the end

No giveaways, not even a twitch
Till the alchemist is completely done
