The doors are all closing
Even the ones you opened for me
Leave one last window open
So I might see a slice of sunset sky….
2.With my eyes
I watch the full moon in the sky with my eyes
From somewhere far you watch her with yours
It’s the same moon and yet I wish at times…
That you would look at her with mine.
Waiting for a gust of cool breeze
To let go and rain
Like my eyes
I had just a handful left
You caught them in your net
And hauled them away
Do you now feel richer?
Don’t bring the scalpel down a million times
Making nicks, cuts and deep wounds
Choose your spot with care, aim right
Kill me once and for all, with one clean swipe
Dead dreams, like cadavers
Dangling from rafters
Having hung themselves on bits of rope
Or perhaps, they were killed by hope….
Erasing the faded green, I drew a new red line
Between your heart and mine
You noticed neither the green nor the red
Too late I found, you have always been color blind.
Your words slammed
The momentum pushed
Now a million light years away
I wander the galaxies, searching for a way…
Soaps wash away grime
Nothing cleans remnants of broken dreams
Like graffiti scratched too deep
They deface heart’s inner walls.
10.Beginning and end
What’s beginning for one
Is an end for another
Dreams are trampled
So dreams can be born.
Loved them…specially 2, 5, 6, 7

Amazing. Each one of them. As I read each, I thought I’d add a comment especially on that one, since it gouged deeper, but then the next one was more profound yet. So what do I do? I sat and read and re read and re read. Each one is metaphor that envelopes you, that nudges, and prods, and makes you respond.
Overwhelmed 🙂 Thank you, Usha!
very nice ones…all of them! 🙂
Thank you, M 🙂
