***while You Were Gone…!
Poem By Seema Aarella
Here comes again the parting season
Bringing along the days of wait
Mind sans logic, sans reason
Thoughts hover along the bisecting strait
Thirst not of water, craving for food none
Body sans feel, sans the basic need
Days slow, night’s shift seems never done
And thoughts traverse at lightning speed!
All hale and healthy, fit and fine
I cannot agree to be and behold
Alive, only to keep the promise of mine
Life sans hope, sans desires manifold!
