a poem by Jyoti Arya

That day when
We walked around the beach
I was afraid
I have lost you
From my soul
As I have something else in my body that
Has even reached my soul
And polluted it too
I reach out for your hand
I was afraid that soon
I would not be there to hold your hand
I am afraid, to hold your hand
You will also be caught by the demon that has entrapped me
You assure me
You still love me
But I am afraid to hold your hand
As I do still love you
