A Pen

The slant of the pen decides its mood

Whether the pages will be slashed or sink deeper 

Leave uncomfortable narratives with ink

Craftily interprets the mood of the writer

Sinewy words could be revived

Or, drowned in some agony of disenchantment

Chronicle a discourse of human dilemma

Reluctant words choke the pen sometimes

Only to be deluged with a feisty harangue

Black or blue, the pages shall speak up

The writer holds on to the pen in agony
