a poem by Harsh Vyas

Yours and mine.
Our words are like steel daggers in each other’s hearts
Words with a firm grip on each other’s hearts
Slowly out lies destroy us like viruses from the inside out

Yours and mine.
The love we gave
Tainted like a glass of water from the grim reaper
Meant to break hearts

Yours and mine.
Surreptitious and snaky stares
Paralyze each part of our bodies
And trample truthful trust’s worthiness

Yours and mine.
Our sacrifices
Made for reasons none
Façades.yours and mine

But on the last day
Our love will forever stay
