THE CRUX~by Balachandran Nair




You asked:
Which one wept first?
Ocean or sky? 
I replied:
…….Ask vapor or rain
God or human being?
…….Ask Creator or his father
Gases or nature?
….Ask elements or atmosphere
Soil or sand?
…..Ask debris or rock
Fragrance or flower?
…..Ask breath or beauty
Worship or belief?
….Ask reliance or trust
Soul or body?
…….Ask ash or flesh
Dream or imagination?
…….Ask child or poet
Seeing or hearing?
….Ask distance or wind
Children or toys?
….Ask breaker or destroyed
Courage or fear?
…..Ask soldier or prisoner
Wait! Before you ask anymore
I want to ask you:
do you know how deep
I am hurt, bleeding inside
Crumbled, crushed, eh?
Is it your sore forgetfulness
Or my own remembrance of
Our lively lovely good old days?
