I try to Read!!!

Grabbing through
The skin of my book
With intense feeling
Boiling at every pages
Casting my net to catch
The author’s mind

The grave silence in the train
Tore me apart
As we speed along
Between the rivers

The heavy pounce
on the leaves kept chewing
With the jaws of the lion
In the jungle of my heart
As time clicks away
On the side of my watch

Three hours the distance
But less not a waste
As the noise filled the industries
With the perfect smoke
Choking the hearts sitting away
In the corner with no mask

As the horn signals my stop
I knew
The hunt of the ant’s eye
Was set on the release
In the river of words
As it swims away happily

Walking away with my
Hands tuck in my front pocket
The blade of the moment
Slice the front lid of my brow
