Love lies in

Picture and Poem ©️ Vibina Narayan

Love lies in..

every gossamered
corner of
objects
and memories,
once owned.
Shadows
of yesterday
you thought
you overlooked.
Veins touched
by the soft glow
of an evening
longing for
impossibilities.
Wine half drunk
brooding into
the dissection
of maybes’.
Eyes that never
met to spill
volumes of
if onlys’.
Sighs dissipated
as cold smoke
into the wind
and fire
of tomorrow.

Everyday I wait…

I sat in a corner

Waiting for you to return,

Every whiff of wind

Carrying your abandoned laughter,

Your dreamy haze, your green silk gaze.

 

I felt like a tree in January

Deserted and lifeless

Waiting for the sunshine in the cold,

To make me look timeless.

And there you came

And just like the winter sunshine,

You beamed at me

For a passing infinite moment

And then joined the other shadows

Of simple clouds,

Whilst I sat in the dark

Small and alone and pining

But strong.

For my sun to smile at me

From behind those large large clouds.
