Echoes is a collection of poems all written by the author at different times which spans across different unspoken spheres of life because stories unspoken gets lost in the mind.
From the book:
INSIDE OF ME
There it stood across the hallway,
Its stare stung me like a bee.
It looked ready to dislocate my skull from my atlas.
It let out a growl.
Me to rest, it was ready to lay
I moved an inch backwards
The door handle pierced me and I held on to it really tight
Could not count on luck because, today was not my lucky day
But if I calculate well and I am really fast, I can
Go to safety, run out through it and open the door.
I doubt if I can achieve that
My sympathetic nervous system had gone on a vacation
And so, my adrenal gland was off duty
My femur could have as well been made of wool
And my stupid metatarsals looked frozen
It growled again to remind me of its presence
The only light that shone were its red huge eyes
It bared its horrible looking canines at me
And used its claws to scrape thin air
It took just a step forward and the whole house shook tremendously
It was my entire fault; I had turned it into a monster.
It kept on following me everywhere I went
I opened the door and tried to run
But before I could, MY CONSCIENCE leapt at me
And tore deep down into my soul!!!
