A Guilt On Trial

Satish Verma

Like a blood sport 
you play with me. 
My thumb bleeds. 

Cannot be salvaged. 
You are put on display 
like lamb meat.. 

Jealousy will ultimately win. 
Uncoupling has started. 

The betrayal hides 
under the lids.Side by side 
are laid the golden chips. 

Now you liberate the unbeliever. 
One day the avalanche will bury the rings. 

Let's not go back to the 
sordid details of relative truths. 
I only wanted to to prove that 
I was wrong. 

Knees broken, I will walk.
