Before You

Black, bleak and white
A trilogy of destitution
Seven years and some
Life largely unfelt
A harrowing meditation
On a growing noise
An isolated narrative
Over a long period
Mimicking, glaring, erratic
Watching life age, in a
masterpiece on memories
Vivid and old
Locked down the street
Now, occasionally, a retrospect

A deep connection
Pleats of possibility
Gentle grace, infinite spirit
Geometry, philosophy, joy!
An art I had never seen!
The laws of nature
Creased under
And a chance-infused doodle
Ushered in this unique creature
Infinite folds, butterflies
Three-dimensional forms
Underpinnings of beauty
A trace outline
Of an origami talk
I need more!

The oldest tales scramble
And steal upon a song;
Powder blue dreams flow,
Reason breaks into ashes,
A world endlessly twists in time,
Light, transformed, takes stage,
Life reunites with film!

How did I even live without you?

was that, but a fake existence?

for now, in your eyes, I see a faith

and in your arms, a home

I must have been a nomad all along!

Separate flakes
Tossed often, 
In a blur 
Of discomfort,
A glitter set off
And minutes dipped in 
The first film of love
Sharpening particles
Of best-case scenarios
Lined the inner rims
A kind migration
Love happened!
