Waters in rivers

Waters in rivers

Remember

The lazy sunshine

Uncovered

Discovered

Our creased and tired bodies

That night had stitched tight

 

We withdrew

Chasing the slumber

Your neck firm

Nose in crooks

Of those times I could write books

Tantalising flights

 

Inside you

Lemon and honey

The bees clung

The flies cried

Upon your shirt my tears dried

Summer was blazing

 

Winter came

It skipped autumn’s leaves

Fast hurtled

Blood curdled

The scream never left my lips

Smothered in silence

Outside Blue

Scent of jam wasted

Blueberries

Mossy bread

Knives tearing inside my head

Remains of dried fruit

 

Apple pie

Clammy like a lie

Stuffed throat

Faces gloat

The love is not for keeping

Like us you’re weeping

 

I dive lone

Into bleak memories

The lakes blue

The sun high

The heart brimming in a sigh

Plunge in Neverland

 

Forgotten

The path to surface

Oxygen

Rarefied

From everything the Heart shied

Tray gold food rotten

 

Within dreams

My toe meets your knee

Shivering

Stolen touch

Alas memories how they flee

With my sight waking

 

I stand still

The birds now chirp low

Their beaks keen

Hues unseen

Colours fuse on window sill

The glass a blue wall

 

They fly free

While I turn my back

Underage

By design

Running still on the same track

In childhood I whine

 

Bring me now

To this grown body

Dried raisins

Await me

You and I a haunted ghost

Abyss clothed in skins

She timeless

Runs through the forests

Laughter bright

Hooded night

A shield from morrows

Binds her to your corpse

 

Suddenly

You cut the ropes loose

Hanging hard

Clinging on

The loose ends ring emptily

The feelings now dawn

 

Bittersweet

Threads of silk flutter

You are gone

The clouds fall

Crashing on Earth they are born

Waters in rivers

 

Now I live

Unseeing eye strays

Blank stares freeze

Warm Heart thaws

There are reasons to forgive

I find many ways

  1. Where should I be shipping that pedestal?? You are amazing. I read this stanza three times. Inside you

    Lemon and honey
    The bees clung
    The flies cried
    Upon your shirt my tears dried
    Summer was blazing

    Don’t know why but it resonated with me. I want you to know I may read your posts a little later than every one else, but that is because I want to read your work uninterrupted. So, I need to wait for the proper moment.

  2. The turning point, when winter arrived, skipping autumn’s leaves, is haunting and familiarly sad…how quickly those summer moments come to an end in a relationship. I also love the hope at the end where the speaker finds many ways to forgive for forgiveness is both selfless and selfish – we forgive others as a sign of peace towards them but more so for our own peace of mind. Great writing, Geetha.
