Do you know?

Do you know?

failures and rejections

are scattered around

the floor of my house

and I still



those broken pieces of mirror,

obsolete coins,

handful of mists,

in half-broken

half-full heart

in the midnight?

Someone, a black shadow

standing still

behind the drapery,



I sometimes long

to find a vibrant soul ,

a talking parrot,

an unseasonal stream of love

from the shadow


but amidst

rains of tears

cyclone of heartache

and darkness of failed fantasies,

nothing is seen or heard

in the soundless post midnight?

Do you know ?

the questions

needing soothing answers,

ironically, go on to present

more and more new questions,

smokes of crackers,

thick black clouds

and a battlefield

of anxieties, despair,

a secluded long serpentine road ahead?

    needing soothing answers – these do create so much turmoil and you have described their presence in such beautiful way in your poem.

    This is so wonderful. Scattered, rejections. I love you you speak of the lost and broken objects in our homes as a spin on the emotional loss.

    Beautifully written.

    There is something here for all of us to relate to with our losses and griefs. I wish you peace–
