HEARTLESS !~by Saroj Padhi




Don’t give your heart dear
to my keeping ,
for my own is lost long since
in reckless giving;

hence mine is always a search
for the lost gem:
in cracks and crevices
of relationships rocked or broken,
in moments of gold robbed or stolen,
inside heaps of midnight ashes,
in storms of sighs
or mountains of huge losses;

now I’m a fire
without desire for burning
a pangless pain
without sweet aching
that keeps my love starving
making life little worthy of living;

hence don’t give your heart dear
to my keeping ,
for I’m full of empty words now
that hardly give life to breathing.
