Farthest / Nearest - Poem by gajanan mishra

I know, my body is
Farthest from me
I know, O my dear
You are nearest to me.

At times I see
In a perverted way
My body appears near
You appear far away.

I know, my body is
Not mine and it is
Not under my control
I am unable to patrol.

I need nothing, my dear
I have to do nothing
For myself, it is clear
As I am nothing.
