Fading

a poem by Soorina Arora

Rooms I’ve walked through,
   Now stripped bare,
The almirah I cared for,
   Cleaned away,
Colours I wore stashed beneath,
   In a case I could not take away.

Days, nights and years frozen,
   Hung in a single photo frame,
A fading reflection,
   That was all,
To take my place,
   As a face upon the wall
