Pain

a poem by

Rita Malhotra Dr

PAIN
Mask of night
Threads of darkness
Crisscrossed on
The mind’s canvas
Fragments of memory
From distant yesterdays
Return, truth laden
Pain laden
Temple flowers wither.

DESIRE
Deluging desire waits
In shadows of a smile
Beginning-less, endless
Disquieting beauty, angelic
Lilac skin
Fragility of butterfly wings
She is darkness for you
To sprawl upon
Waiting for
The not yet born kiss
