The Shadow Of Yours - Poem by Jaya Varma

Its drizzling here
and you ain't around
the rising scent
is breaking me down
i catch your shadow
and curse it hard
it says nothing
just slips a card
that says you're busy
can't show up tonight
'with love' at the bottom
to freeze the fight
i hold the shadow
and sob with it
it puts me back
bit after bit..

    The bitter sweet of love denied sholdered by shadow is your love's stormy night. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful write expressing the frustration of someone waiting for her lover at the knowledge that he won't turn up! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply
