The Coliseum ~ Taahir Sardiwalla

Time witnessed a smile
Then when happiness threatened
To reach a longing eye
It stole the little spark of hope

The hound
Salivating for
Bloody torn fibres
Ill-afforded the moment
By temptation

He is cruel in his ways
Yet he makes a being stronger
At the expense of happiness

For it is with each wind
The coliseum must bear
The colossal brunt

So I ask you this
This day
Be there when I fall
