I Missed You - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

I missed you like; the scorched deserts miss inevitable droplets of rain,
I missed you like; the innocuous orphans profoundly missed their parents,
I missed you like; the gargantuan chunks of white marble miss shine,
I missed you like; the arid mountains miss the mesmerizing cascade of the
waterfall,
I missed you like; the wild panther in the cage misses its kingly status and growl,
I missed you like; the glamorous woman, who misses streaks of flamboyant paint on her
nails,
I missed you like; the fortified lock which lies strangulated; missing its articulate key,
I missed you like; the fishes imprisoned in the aquarium miss the ravishingly salty sea,
I missed you like; the dilapidated stones lying on the street missed the honor of
being incorporated in the palace,
I missed you like; the grandiloquent fountain pen missing its ink,
I missed you like; the mother who misses her children when they depart for
school,
I missed you like; the leaves of the tree which thoroughly miss exuberant
draughts of breeze,
I missed you like; the silver sands of beach miss a battalion of crabs,
I missed you like; the exhausted intestine misses reinvigorating water,
I missed you like; the blotted patches of thunderous sky miss the twinkling stars,
I missed you like; the crippled man misses his strong feet,
I missed you like; the tallest summit of the mountain misses the obstreperous
sounds on the earth,
I missed you like; the spider crawling wildly on the ground misses its web,
I missed you like; the criminals held captive in dingy cells miss their homes,
I missed you like; the penguins wading through frozen ice miss holistic sunshine,
I missed you like; the drunkard in the disdainful hospital misses voluptuous wine,
I missed you like; the fractured bone misses its strength to audaciously fight,
I missed you like; the blind man traversing on the crowded streets misses his eyes,
I missed you like; the bereaved wife misses her husband,
I missed you like; the bird lying injured on the debris misses its buoyant wings,
I missed you like; those afflicted with cancer miss the zest for robust life,
I missed you like; the dismally old miss their resplendent youth,
I missed you like; the once exorbitantly affluent misses all his wealth,
I missed you like; dead body of a person missed indispensable breath,
I missed you like; tbe omnipotent god in heaven misses earth,
Please come back to me; forgiving me for my inadvertently committed misdeeds,
As I can't exist without you; I really miss you.
