​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?
