A mirage called life  

Life, a hazy mirage seized by some poignant,
some worthy junctures, mostly haunting.
A silhouette embedded in a rock it seems,
fossiled in time; lifeless, yet it's life still.
So calm, yet clamoring to be lived,
to taste all the lessons which it can give.
Sometimes an angel, showering affection,
even a devil at times, seething hate and deception.
Like a broken tap on a deserted highway.
No water, yet a nomad, tired & wet
checks it & returns betrayed.
Yes, its exudes enigma,
an elusive mystery, hard to decipher
Those who fathom are unforgiven throughout.
It's enchanting, yes this life,
like a glowing ball of fire.
shelled by love, hate and redemption,
a temptress in a sultry attire.
But, it is doomed to die one day
& will take with it all it's prey.
This life, overwhelmed with miseries,
ready to entrap our souls.
We endure just to gather memories,
a heaven within empty wholes.
We exist to find ourselves,
to take all that it can give.
We laugh, we cry, we curse,
yet we never cringe to live.
