Double Bind

Since long
I didn't see you,
Since long
I didn't say a word
About you,
Yet you came to my dreams
Every night.

People say -
''out of sight means
Out of mind'',
If so - why didn't I forget you
Since long?

When I lived
In the isolation,
I felt the purity of love
In the purity of morning dew,
Since then
I knew,
You exist in me,
As your absence
Made me feel pain.

They say -
''Separation means remaining
Miles apart'',
I am apart from you
Since long.
Then -
Why do I feel
You are so near to me?

I know
My dear,
You want me to forget
You wholly,
And I have applied
All the weapons that are
Available on earth.
Yet I have failed
To forget You.

My dear,
Be quiet and calm
And listen to me,
When separation drags you
So near to me,
Please come to me
And hug me and love me,
And help me
Forget you.
And let the separation
Be miles apart.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
