I fail for the upteenth time to write a poem that rhymes with love/ my hands do not know how to hold, they don’t share warmth rather pain/ my mouth do not speak of nicer sentences but words of remorse and grief/ my blood carry the fragility of longing, they clot in between and i lay stuck in past/ my stomach carry bits and pieces of cheesecakes that i hate the most/ today, i try to not name my new shawls after you/ i wish to not write your name in the last page of my happiness journal/ i order an extra scoop of ice cream with no second thought/ but, i fail to stay alive/ i fail to safekeep my paper thin heart/ i go back to the memories of parking lot and grocery stores every evening/ they say i haven’t changed a bit, i modify myself by thinking about you, i run away, keeping you closer than ever.
I try to rewrite our love story in paper, i burn them, the ashes are rusty red, old and tarnished/ i try to rewrite our love story in paper, i bury them in sand, the place mourns and drains in tears, that day i realised- ours was never a love story.

  2. Beautiful expression of emotions…..a subtle and restrained expression specially of hurt . Beauty lies in never going overboard with the emotions and you excel in that.
    God bless you Hema🌹🙏🌹
