O Zeus, O Peitho

Updated: Dec 21, 2023

O Zeus , O Peitho.

Life seems unjust to you.

What would these mortals know?

Is it the inbuilt nature?

Or personified responsibility

Of promiscuity, of dissolute thoughts.

Be them as licentious as they may be.

O Zeus, O Peitho

What would these mortals know?

Conversion O Sublimation of unaccepted desires.



Flickering dresses over candle’s flame

while the innocent impulses ignite something ingenious.

Is it your fault, your inclinations

come with consequences 

of being disregarded and judged

of being unfaithful reckless wants.

O Zeus, O Peitho.

What would these mortals know?

And why would they?

Pain

By Ankita Sah How's pain? Someone asked me again. " Pain.." I wondered, Being thoughtless for a while... Is actually full of thoughts. An ocean so deep, you do not know if you will resurface. You keep
