a big lie

my beloved,
it’s the limitations of our eyes
that created the horizon, seamless.

for ages,
and dreams made of words
have been cheating us.

freedom & eternity
love & equality
are all big lies.

born out of lies,
and being prisoners of these lies –
of caste and creed,
of religion and of profession
we divide and rule.

with misplaced passion
we kill and get killed
cheat and get cheated
for the very permanence of these lies -

until we fall prey to
the biggest of all lies
called death...
