Beloved - Poem by Rajendra padhi
If you come after so many years
Like a lost child,
I won’t mistake to give my heart
As your home,
It is only dark there, the ghost of you
Stopping and shutting
Its window and doors,
My heart beats like the tail of a fish
Twisting on sands to find the shore,
I am not able to return
The paths are broken like the stem
Lost like a traveler in the desert,
I lay upon my heart so timidly
Your memory is so frightening
As if I am an insect, you are a lizard.
Now that it will never happen twice
I thank you for breaking my heart,
It needs to be broken
To write a poem on you.
You are the left out fire on hearth
In front of the coffee shop where I stand
Waiting for a cold blast of wind
The way you deserve.
