Dear Father, Where Art Thou Now?





The memories of our tamed night

Of our sweet pain inside nest

When we grasped for breath

Still echo everyday from the cords

Of my lost breath


In my mind, you trapped me to an eternal honeyed haven

Like union of eternal

I swam in my honeyed heaven





Thud of earth

Caressed our entanglement


With teary and thorny gauges

On exiled thoughts

Words travel in my head, why did I ‘yes’ to you





Now, you are a see through

From your eyes, I see nothing



Fading in, fading out

In the dark shades of our lost love


I am here and always here

Here is your forever and not here

If you be back undefiled, I await you
