Curses And Blessings Upon You

Poem By Eila Mahima Jaipaul

the moon shone down
like a bright lantern in my darkness
wind whipped at the smoke that envelops me
blowing the clouds and fog
surrounding me
blowing you away
cleansed in the night
I can feel your leaving
not suddenly as you came
but a gradual fading
like the wisps
of the moon tinged clouds in the breeze
I could let you slip into oblivion
into that void
the way sand rolls off fingertips
but I do not
though you deny me
and will till your breath leaves
despite your waking dreams
you know
when you close your eyes
and stillness quiets you
you know.
you know, you'll never be rid of me
my being surrounds you
my presence you seek in crowded arms
the essence that is my soul
that will forever be
your greatest triumph and regret
when you deny me, you deny yourself
yet in spite of that
I will be there,
if only to whisper
I told you so.
