Written by Jacob Ibrag


Her tiny fingers

made way to the beasts

heart. His eyes screamed

caution,  yet she went on.

Forever altered, she melted

his facade and freed what was

living inside him for so long.

 Overwhelmed, he attempted

to touch hers too. Forgetful of

his nature, her tears streamed

on to his skin. ‘Your claws,

they’re beautiful.’

  8. This poem offers me a world/lifespan of its own, framed by the words Inhale and Exhale, which gives a physical aspect as well, adding to the experience. Life and death, really, breathing in and breathing out. Brilliant!😍

  9. Your poem is an excellent surreal; phantasmagoria. It’s fantastic to think how your consciousness works? One can paint this poem. Anand Bose from Kerala.
