While you went away
To drape yourself in golden and saffron elegance
Rejuvenated, you will come back
Wearing the bright colours of the autumn sun
Meanwhile, unseasonal snow blanketed my mind
And though your love in my heart helped shovel the ache caused by your absence
Monsoon flowed freely from my eyes
And in all this, all I did was wait for you patiently
Holding on to dear Poetry.
As the voices in my head
Worsened the chaos at dusk
My layers fell off one by one
Just like the leaves that you walked upon
Now I am cold and winter is on the horizon
Won’t you come soon and lend me your sun?
