You can elide me from your thoughts, 
abjure my presence,
and aver your paean to some newfound zeal

You can expatiate your farrago emotions,
shield yourself ignominies under the veil of deification
and servile your oblivious world

You can do everything to prove your illusion
but how will you vitiate the spark of the ember
that glows relentless beneath your ostensible heart

By, Shantanu Baruah

Elide - Omit
Abjure - Renuounce
Paean - song of praise
Farrago - hotchpotch
Ignominies - Shame
Deification - Worship
Servile - Please others
Vitiate - Spoil
Ostensible - appears to be true
