YOUR SHADOW~by Saroj Padhi


 

 

YOUR SHADOW

Still trembling my hands are caught
groping wildly
for your shadows
clinging onto my wall
during your last visit—
that image of wet Spring
on Summer’s dry breast ;
I remember how you left in a haste
that afternoon
without looking back,
I stood there all aback
like a thunder’s terrified stance
at the sudden break of a lightning
that burnt a heart
and a head loudly aching ;
I retreated into my cocoon
woven out of your warm memories
lying scattered like pearls
on the floor of my rosy dreams ;
and I scream now like a child
for a doll broken by an earthquake
that then was all of a sudden washed away
by Sorrow’s unknown strong streams.
