NOWHERE TO GO (A Poem)

NOWHERE TO GO
(a poem)
By AMAN MITTAL

Abandoned the house
I use to live
As loved ones are gone
A long time before,

Abandoned the road
I use to walk
Took me to places
I could never thought,

Abandoned the body
I use to dwell
For the face became unknown
And the body rotted,

Still I wonder
Deeply concerned
Where will I go now?

DARK HOUSE (A Poem)

Dark House

a poem 

by Aman Mittal

A  big dark house

I  made it myself

Brick by brick

From a corner to top

Hollow from inside

Narrow by side

Without an attic

Roof is flat

But a big cellar

At the bottom

Locked and shut

Connected with tunnels

Marrow and shallow

Left incomplete

To banish the escape

Not a soul to dwell

But to consist

Only my dead thoughts.

THE HANGMAN (A poem)

The Hangman

a poem

by Aman Mittal

By the roots of his hair

Some God got hold of him

Abducted by His Strength

Felt like a prophet of a desert.

Nights are like snapshots

Out of sight

Like a lizard’s eyelid.

And the bald white days

Shade away

Behind the oaks.

While being pinned on a tree

The man ask god

If you were me, What would you do?

The god replies

If I were you, I would do what you did.

THE DEVIL’S DISCIPLE: A REVIEW

The Devil’s Disciple

The Devil’s Disciple was written in 1896-97 by G. Bernard Shaw. The play occurs in the town of Websterbridge, New Hampshire, in 1777 during the American Revolution. The play is written in a way in which each act ends in a cliff-hanging affair. The hero acts out of unselfish idealism. Otherwise all other characters are significant and make the play a melodrama with a difference. The court-martial scene is one of the funniest scene of its kind in dramatic literature. It revolves around a General whose witty sarcasm is classy and sophisticatedly pleasing. Shaw never losses an opportunity to attack the needless destruction of war and to make of military pomp and circumstance. As I said earlier, it is a melodrama but with a difference. To know the difference, you have to read it!
