In this interlude
by RAJ VIKRAM
amidst the chirping of time
that wants to move on
I found the silence to hear you.
Tell me whatever you want,
just unburden whatever ached
that shoulders all along, to this
shoulders which are broad for you.
I am here for you, just for you
to absorb all your pangs.
In this interlude you may open out
and regurgitate all the churnings
that upset you and moistened
those deep dark eyes.
I will hear whatever you say
and won't utter even a word back.
I this interlude,
in your arresting presence.
I will keep listening to you
To be with you is to be with me.
In this brief interlude
just blurt out, just open out
I am here for you, just for you.
In this cocoon of frozen time.
I beg you to flush out
all the silt in the channels of your mind
I am here just for you
wholly and completely.
In this interlude,
this birth of mine is that interlude.
