The Magician

She knew what she saw
was an illusion.
Again she went to the same magician.
The masquerade had fallen long ago.
Was it his dexterity or her oblivion
that made her forget that
Treacherous Blow ?

Unconditional Love

As he went to the world beyond ,
nobody in the blue planet for him mourned.
Not even his master , his 'Beloved Master'.
Each day a question
perturbed the Creator.
Why he wagged tail
for that whipper , his 'Beloved Master'.
"Did your self respect get slaughtered ?"
"Faithfulness for him will always reside .
Hatred will get murdered."
Is he an epitome
of love that is unconditional
or a fool who never to see
the real face of his 'Beloved Master'.

Born to die

There in those shores
as she lies ,
finally she closes her eyes .
But she is salmon
she is born to die.
Charles happily took her away .
He didn't think twice
about brave salmon's life .
Because she was salmon ,
she had to die .
Amidst the strong current ,
she found her mate.
How could she now escape her fate?
But she was salmon.
She was born to die.
Bereft of any apprehensions
as she completed her
long swim to death,
she wished to know
if the orphaned fries
ever realize her sacrifice?
Or they too will say
Because she was salmon,
she had to die .
