Broken Bones

 

 

Now we sit together at

the terrace and watch

the setting sun

 

we never did that

before since we were

strangers under the

same roof

 

she was the mother of

four kittens, my cat’s

lover

 

neither we exchanged

any meaows nor we

shared scrambled eggs

 

only her babies were

close to me and my cat

was my star

 

my companion in dawn

and dusk

my solitude in lonely

nights

 

he still walks in my mind

he still plays the rara avis

with both of us

 

our eyes now meet

sometimes while we

cross rooms and perhaps

we see him sharing a

space

 

it was a death and not

a murder since we would

never give credit to an

unknown rash driver

 

we know time will fly by

we know we shall cry

we know silence will turn

into stones

 

while we shall keep

sharing inside us some

broken bones…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Streak of Memory

 

 

A deer running in the midst

of deep forest and a memory

peeps in my mind

 

The valleys we saw, the

touches we left in the patches

of memories

 

We ran once like there were

no boundaries only to fall into

each other’s arms

 

In the silence of those nights

we drifted apart to be lost in

sweet-bitter senses

 

Passion drizzling with strokes

of touches forever lingering

in skin

 

Let us meet. Let us feel again

the ripples of lost melodies

 

Not to lose your soul in me

but to set my visions free
