Falling Apart

by Enakshi Johri
(Bareilly, India)

With every word of thought I spoke
The pearl droplets came rushing down
Tracing their path through the pale skin
Leaving an expression of frown
I asked you not I demanded
To be truthful and not to lie
“Trust me”, you said and I believed
Only to be broken like a piecrust and die
Looking down in the mouth
I waited for you to return
But leaving me in the dumps
Ignoring my love and care, you became so stern.

Why is it that every time, I surrender?
Why can’t I live like a happy camper?
Because I love you?
Or is it my madness?

Questions remain same
Only the feelings are in flux
Like marcescent I shall wither one day
Leaving you, leaving the pain
Swallowed in the memories that remain.
