Poems by Bhavana

Gagan

a poem by Bhavana

What lies beyond the clouds?
Are they too cheats?
Will they disappear
When I touch and leave behind only emptiness?

The sky,
Blue, black, white?
Do you exist?

Come down to me as rain,
Wet my lips,
Give me my first kiss,
And then leave me all alone, cold and trembling.

Fool me with your eyes,
Love me with your frown,
And then leave me all alone, cold and trembling.

Please may I touch you,
Only once,
Just to know if you really exist?
