Sisyphus...

"I see myself forgotten,
like those old anchors,
here, I love you,
and the horizon hides you in vain;
I still pine for you,
among these cold things."
...
"cold nights cant be a barrier,
neither my boring words will!
this distance wont be a barrier,
neither my lost words will!!"
[v1.0.0.0]
...
these lonely nights cant be a barrier,
neither my boring words will!
this distance wont be a barrier,
neither the winter's chill!!
[v1.1.0.0 Cipher's interpretation]
...
Dreams fold & unfold,
dream hold & unhold,
dream told & untold,
the night falls & re-falls,
the softness stirs in the ears
shimmers in the eyes,
hurls down the slopes & stings the heart,
jerking a piece out,
and there lies the sunny day,
revolving yellow cars on the roads,
and you feed on sticky spaghetti
and curl and uncurl and furl and unfurl bellow the tough quilt,
shoving hands between the folded knees
and on the lap of the pillow
and your nokia gadget stroking 7 8; a sizzling hiss - good morning!!
[get up! You Sisyphus]

An Ode! to the Master Sisiphus said...

The Rock weighs heavy on your shoulder
The mountain soars up high , yonder the sight
You ,an oscillating nugget of flesh and blood
Up UP Upping
Down Down Downning
TO the days to eternity
perpetuality
छ्या छ्या .....
look at your guts....
You Spied on gods
you stole the scrects
you impede the Jupitor's orgasm
You were cursed
You were uncursed
ओहो ओहो
AVENGER
you chastised her
there she feeds the hawks
with the pieces of your corpse...
You Loved the earth
you loved the water
you loved the lilies
you loved the hairs on her feet
That you did not deserve
Thus you disobeyed
Thus you demeant
The decrees
of the gods righteous
of the gods covetous
And lay on the mountain of the Hades
You ,an oscillating nugget of flesh and blood
Up UP Upping
Down Down Downning
TO the days to eternity
perpetuality
OH Master Sisiphus
hail you here
hades of our times
repenting the sins of your previous Karma
striving to break the endless circle of sinful births.....
In the Avtar of
संघर्ष भटराई
Up UP Upping
Down Down Downning
with the rock glued
to your shoulder........................................................................................Amen!

'an ode! to the master Sisyphus',
I just pondered onto one aspect of his life - redundancy, and hence had the courage to jot down that last line "[get up! You Sisyphus]"...
rest is all yours!

Thanks Anjana Di,
I appreciate!

but I'd rather relay the compliments to the one who actually wrote it, I was merely a messenger
