To Sasi Chithi

As if 
a bullet piercing 
through my skin
No blood spill
Just a 

clean gaping hole
called loss.

An year
A month
Does it matter?
The scar remains
Questioning absence
With a
“Why did you have to go?”
And from the void
Not even the silence answers
I look within
I hear your lovely laugh,
Grateful for memories
Grateful for love
Grateful for all the time spent!
And here we are
Still ill at ease
Scratching the soul
wondering about things like
body, presence, reality
When you with your calm eyes
Smile from somewhere across
And suddenly a warmth fills my heart
A tear rolls down
And grudgingly I make peace
And decide to trap you
Within my heart
No! From here, you have no escape!

I burnt the past quietly
And kept it under lock and key
Smelly things these memories
Today a whiff escapes

Come, Let's Hide The Truths!

Let's ignore it for as long as you want to
For truths are meant to be hidden
And shushed- snucked under the bed
And even during springtime cleaning
The boxes under the bed are opened
Simply to be shut tight once again

What do you see within?
Sometimes there is light with a shut eye
Like photographs that seize light
And clam shut to capture
And mulling in the dark- reveal
These new waters, untested-
Float without fear
For you shall not drown
There are no sharks inside
There is just a tiny yellow fish
That tickles your feet when you get low!

Thank god for blogs!

and I'll scatter my words to the wind
for the wind takes it away from me
from you, from everybody
and in the land of no-one-knows-where
they'll find someone who'll hold them close!
