From the Last Time

July 18, 2015 | By

A wistful plea of a lover addressing his last heartfelt words to his lady-love.

poem mud

there are images
swamped in mud

When you close the gates
on me, I feel
suicidal – tell me Neeta,
do you care?
Or, like a rude swan
you turn your back in pride?
as if I am your sin of last birth

there are images
swamped in mud
from the tyres of your speeding car,
these are the images
in the head – I lay bare

Far away there are men
and women and lillies
in their gardens,
to protect them from the frozen sea
of defeats and battles,
I can hear them sing – feeble,
from the skin of my last death.
