Rainbow-less Dreams

I borrowed few more breaths,
from a smog of rainbow-less dreams,
drenched in acidic scents of today.

Was I blind or just a fool?
slowly melting into vapours,
I borrowed few more breaths.
A moment more, I lay there still,
and filled palette with surreal hues,
from a smog of rainbowless dreams.
How long this pain can be nursed?
the scars that even time can't heal,
drenched in acidic scents of today.


Poetry Form - Cascade
Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C (Refer - Shadow Poetry)
