I’m shadow. I’m darkness.

I live in you. I grow in you.

I thrive on your bitterness.

Every smidgeon of hate

Every thought of malice

Feeds me and strengthens my soul.



Your progeny I fear

Innocence and love

Corrode and consume me.

Keep me away from them

Keep me locked in your mind

Together we’ll watch the world burn.

    This was a child’s toy in Harappan times. Its displayed at the Heritage museum in Gurgaon. The photographer seemed to have been in a sombre mood when he clicked this. I found an element of menace in this and so my words went that way.
