Affected Affections Poem by Rajesh Gurung


Spare me your affected affections
Your stunted philosophies
Wipe that shallow smile
Off your façade
Of chameleon identities

Disrobe and let me spy
On your nakedness
Unblemished of illusions
Let it be a moment of realities

Untangle the web of words
Woven around you
The warp of ironies
And the weft of sarcasm

Come out of your hiding
The walls around you are crumbling
In the open
So I can understand
Your substance
You, your essence
