I rarely write poetry…But here’s something I composed yesterday:


A Soul tendrilled with fire,
Like a dragon’s searing breath.
Engulfed with flames of thought,
Electrons of restless ideas.

An inferno of desire,
Sparks of red and dust.
Tortured Soul, it leaps
Quenched with Faith and Higher.

  1. The whole imagery was intense Maha! I mean such strong words! Kinda scary. I love your last concept “quenched with Faith and Higher”. I felt as if the whole rhythm was building and building with so much heat and agony… then relieved down immediately. 🙂
    You made “Faith” sound like water for the soul. I loved every bit of it.

    But I have a problem with the “engulfed with flames of thought” part. I feel that the soul should not “think” it should have some tactile property, some experiences which help it learn, some senses not thinking … don’t know.. that one just seemed a little amiss to me, the rest was BEAUTIFUL

    write more poetry!

    1. I just discovered so many comments that wordpress had labelled as spam! -_-

      Thank you for critically analyzing my humble efforts!! I tried to write something metaphysical, but wasn’t sure if my words were even making sense. I’m so glad the water image was clear, because I was trying to build it up to that.

      As for “engulfed with thoughts”, I always felt like our Soul was a guiding compass engulfed with spiritual thoughts…I should have made my meaning clearer!

      Thank you for your critique <3! Ironically I can only write poetry when I am the tortured soul =P…
