(visakhapatnam, india)

From the biography of an unknown woman: XL


Looking out through the window
She saw a sky of melancholy
In shades of ink-blue and black

In the ticking of the clock on the wall
She heard the loud and clear hollowness
Filling the empty room

Some stray memories sweet and bitter
Simply struggled like a flickering candle
Placed on the window sill

In the distant night is heard
Painful whining of dogs
As she struggled to close
The window against the blowing wind
