Undue Credit

You give me undue credit by believing,
in my ability to remain sane in this
Insane world, without you.
Don’t hold me in such high esteem,
don’t think that I won’t scream,
when the band-aid is,
ripped off my soul’s wound.
.
I might have smiled,
while waving goodbye,
But had you looked closely,
You would have seen,
the heartbreak in my eyes.

Your silence cuts through my soul,
speak to me, make me whole.
Whenever I speak with you,
I open a vein,
You neither see the silent cries,
Nor hear the crimson tears.

Close your eyes and see me,
Breathe me in with your touch.
You’ll miss me as such.
I, your proud strength,
You, my gentle touch.

Don’t unclench my fists, when I die,
I am holding on to your promise,
of returning soon.
Let me leave with something,
that is totally mine,
“Hope”.

    Oh God Sulekha – you are really something. I could never put emotions like this in such pretty lines. Hence they die inside me – unexpressed! This one talks to my heart.
