Creek Of Elixir

Words drift with the winds, brush past the being,

 A hidden creek rises from the cusp of veiled hopes and sanctimonious desires,

An elixir flows enriched with pain, stirred with molten love, drowned in dreams afloat,

A pyre crackles at the cusp fanned by moments, like breath from a flute tapped by the click-clocks,

Winded and dragged on the mount, a storm- silence, a storm-silence, yet the pyre keeps the elixir alive,

A silent creek must whisper in silent tones, silent sounds ought to be heard,

The screams and cries, hurt and wants, murmurs of caution, of distrust and disbelief, fencing life,

Dreams echo in the cave, from wherein flows the life-drug,

 Muffled voices of a zeal to rise free and dare to fall free….

…Thundering shallow commands of those dignitaries from the concrete walls and glass moulds……

….The two voices, one from within, other from the out….

…Neither from south, but at war, each clashing with righteous vengeance,

Torn mind is not, agitated blistered heart is, the roped path to that mount swings forlorn,

Awaiting impatient footsteps, missed beats, heaving breaths,

Clasp your hands over your ears, and sing with harsh breaths the songs of your dreams,

Let the flute play your tone, hang your coat and your hat at the entrance of the shelter you left behind,

You must pass the valley of fear, of haplessness, of disdain from pitiless eyes, unshielded,

For dreams of souls can be borne only ragged and scalded,

Fondled by hardships yet unbent head, the fanatical almighty might point you to east,

Gulp the pain of lost memories, of a yester year where you knew less, moan not for the yourself,

Clutch the sack of gathered autumn leaves, of seeds for the summer,

Merge what you see, what you fathom, what you might know,

Roar towards the cave on the antagonizing peak; turn not to the south, nor to the west,

But look to the north, harrow with your feet to that glow of pyre in the east,

Drink you must from the creek, wet your lips with hope for now, for only the elixir shall quench thy thirst

    This was very rich, descriptive, and at times lyrical in cadence. Very well done!
