The Elasticity of Love
By Afzal Moolla -- Contributing Poet -- [Email This Item]
wildly cacophonous soulscapes,
all the while as truth slips through the cracks,
on time's wrinkled face.
How easy it is to sew the heart up,
extinguishing the embers crackling in a soul,
dousing the fires of yearning when memories bubble up.
How hard to euthanize such fickle whispers,
cremating unburnt passages of loose-leaf verse,
delving deep into a core once pure, and now rotten.
ignoring plaintive cries,
sewing up the cocoon,
I want to rest in dead space,
slip inside private nightmares,
awakening long dormant fears,
eliciting a flood of tears,
find that belonging,
not much, merely a trace,
in a far-off inaccessible place.
