After Ten Years

Updated on August 9, 2014

You left him

without ever turning around

Or leaving cell number unchangeable

He cried out day and night

Years long enough stuck in pain

Pain lingers and it won’t leave you in peace If you keep skipping chances.

"This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something."
— Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)

“For my part, I prefer my heart to be broken. It is so lovely, dawn-kaleidoscopic within the crack.”
― D.H. Lawrence.

Your letter in Easter egg form was a treasure beyond measure

Now torn to pieces after ten years as if they were expired, never sent.

Your scent in T-shirt was perfume intoxicant

Now ten years a piece of garment desiccant

Old flames rekindled when ears stumble upon such names

He loved her more than anything

Love that knew no red lines , No weary

Stalwart as a fortress

Sweet as nectar of a blooming flower

Not enough

She said

At last

Letting her inside go of

and then pitch-black night sky blobbed on him toughly

Vision lost


He fumbled

And stumbled

Only ,


Strong legs..tent poles !!

Antarctica his sweat

Still silently

Rolling down

Even though

His heart skipped only a beat

And then off again palpitating.

Back to normalcy,

Back to confidence,

“She can’t leave me , she is stuck in here as I am”

He thought.


She left without turning around

She had to .

Life pretty good outside cage

Vast apace , much ado

No balls and chains

Rebellious spirit has no brakes and knows no bars

He fell to the ground



Here and there

Like a broken vase

A lot of pain, a lot of tears

Bitter days, cold nights


As years passed

Void of light, void of warmth

Existence unresolved

He thought

As demons etch their words daily, tattooing his inside.

Not enough

Memories fades the same way a ship getting away the port.

The scent of the sea

Wafts past on the wind

Caressing his nose ,

Word is born

Apocalypse begins

A hand catches a rope

Not straw !!!
