POEM: ‘Permit’

I’ve housed a loud, invisible intrusion,

Ominous, opaque in nature,

Ray of darkness,

Asphyxiating, tranquility tapered.

Will waned,

Determination drained,

Faltering fruitful future fulfillment.

Guilt-ridden aftermath of mistakes,

Allowed my firm foundation to shake,

The toxic traitor to blame, my bane,

None other than fear,

I no longer permit you to reside here.

POEM: ‘Proxy’.

Making of memories,

Momentary,

Nostalgia in hindsight,

Fractured.

A burning, yearning to re-create,

Smouldered, buried,

As seas separate moments captured.

Picture loved ones,

Close in spirit,

Scattered across Earth’s plane,

But connected,

By trajectories transport inhibits,

Yet bonds remain unaffected.

Displacement runs rife,

To skies from ceilings,

As birthplace does not equal home,

Future, friends, feelings,

Are felt only by proxy, picture, phone.

One day,

Smiles will not expire,

Once annual hugs,

Now carry frequency and laughter,

A full face, fresh space- my attire,

When I no longer require a return-trip after.
