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!
