One Poem by Sushant Thapa

 



     

Loaded Mind



The heaviness

On my mind,

The sinking ship

Of my desire

The effort to stay afloat

No acid of pain

But tear of joy.

The heart amused

By its own spell of beats.

Being in chains

That don't lie

Liberates a joy.

The purpose to be real,

Appreciate the high hill

From the ant hill of life.

Unreal dreams

Not any uprooting desire.
