Down, and further down
Goes the rabbit hole
There is a story
Alice never told
She wandered off the road
A creature chasing her
Go away! Don’t follow
Nothing’s ever over …
This path is dark
You might need a light
Dangers might lurk
With creatures alike
Something came towards her
Cold gloomy night
No one to help her
Walk with all your might …
These walls are shiny
It is a marbled road
Ceiling is spiky
Those crystals getting old
She began to turn around
Cold wind passed by
Finally saw the face
Oh! angel divine …
She wore a silky dress
Beautiful than a bride
No flowers in her hand
But, a might scythe
A whisper in her ear
Lovely voice it was
Do you know anyone here?
Sinister tone it was …
Was dazed by the voice
Thinking weather to stay
Oh lets rejoice
Throw your worries away
A party nevertheless
No sorrows no pain
The bliss of emptiness
A spike through your brain …
Alice stood by
As brave never before
World full of lies
A friend neither foe
No Cats, Rabbits to help
To mend a broken hope
The ceiling closing in
Spikes to let loose …
She crawled through gap
Hoping this would end
Suddenly heard a clap
She broke through the door
Queen of hearts waiting
Demons circle the sky
Nightmare will be ending
As Life flashes by …
She crept through the hollow
Finally broke free
Heartache too much to swallow
Rabbit where are thee
Nostalgia is to wallow
Let the memory be
Soldiers started to follow
Tale continues. oh glee!

නොයෙක් දේ දැක්කත්
නොයෙක් දේ වින්දත්
පාළුයි තනියි ලොව
නුඹ නැති

සොයා ගියෙමි මම
නිමේශය අග
හමුනොවෙයි නුඹ
යමි අනන්තය වෙත

ගිලිහෙන හැම වදනක්ම
නික්මෙන හැම සිතුමක්ම
ගැනයි නුඹ

කියාගත නොහැකිව
ලතැවෙයි මම

The Reaper

She came to me
In my dreams
Whispering those
Foul screams
An omen
Of haunted souls
Behind those
Bloody dark walls…
She told me
“I’m not death
But life
Of far beyond death
It’s the truth nobody wants…”
She was dressed
In a shimmering white gown
A hooded long veil
Covering her frown
Her soothing voice
Mesmerizing my soul
The glee, the suffering
My heart crawls…
In the darkness
That creature lures
Devouring corpse
Of wretched souls
She called it
As if it is a pet
A scythe
Just above her head…
She whispered
Slowly to my ear
My darling
“There is nothing to fear”
Swoosh no pain or tear

A baleful yearn

Sanity flies away
Beyond imagination
A lucid dream
With a cogent theme
Faith runs away
When creed fall apart
Hallowed be thy name
Oh! serene being

Nature is laughing
Galleons of rain
Pouring to the head
A thunderous pain
Dead man is walking
Zombie you prefer
Blessed be thy name
Oh! heavenly bluffer

A trident in one hand
A baleful smile
A smirk pinned my eyes
Not a light reflecting
But covered in yearn
Come back again
Oh! powerful almighty

දෙතැනක සිත

පෑනට ඉඩ නැතිව
ගෙවීයන දවස්
දුකින් බලාසිටීමට
සිදුවිය මට…
සිත තැන් තැන් වලට
ගමන් කර ඇත
ඒ ගමන් වලට
හුරු වී ඇත
එක තැනකට එකතු කිරීමට
පෑනට නොහැකිවී ඇත
බලා සිටිමි
දෙතැනක ඇති සිත
එක්තැන් වන තුරු

Darkness is upon us
With an eerie cold wind
Howls of the wolves
More darkness to the wind

Dripping water from the socket
Clacking sounds of the bucket
Whispers darkness to heart
Pierce faster than a dart

Something creeps in hallway
Dark corner near the pillar
Is that eyes or lights blinking?
It’s time to gather some valor

That creature closes every second
It’s fangs blades that sharpened
It’s skin covered with spikes
It’s breath smells dead flesh

It threw fangs towards me
One brushed my bare chest
Blood splattered everywhere
Legs found to run no where

Darkness is upon us
With an eerie cold wind
