Thou! Jealousy!


Thou! Jealousy
as a veiled maiden deceits…

metamorphoses into various shapes
changeth appearances
lures
with exuberant names…

lest anyone finds
the hidden coquette
she overthrows him into the tragic well…

Discontented, ever desiring
innocence burns out in her lusty eyes
she hath destroyed the realms
of peace and love
playing the fiddle to her  tunes!

Beware! says the soul
here  comes, the enticing queen
do not be her slave
dooms she ,every life…thence,
open your eyes
remove the veil…

    ‘Veiled maiden’ picturised nicely. Symbolically the whole theme manifests in a complete most order.

      Thanks Vishal. Isn’t it the truth that we prefer to see through the veil and forget to see the reality. Good to know that you loved the piece
