A Love Denied

Reading Time: 1 minute

An evocative and bold by Deeya.

I survive;
the truth perched on my
on a crystal May morning sunlight
an alibi on my window-sill.                                                               

, walk the distance
in me,
I try measuring the steps
they are an eternity- my womb’s claustrophobic
from the severe -indulgence in
morphine like, my mouth’s acrid
in the may noon

an archaic hour glides by
like a Falcon, feeding the hunger in my soul.
Hope is your silhouette the pitch dark hours of dawn
while the evening’s an orchestra of fathomless dreams
the narration an aftermath of ,
hanging on the I wear.
