Mirror - Poem by Ankur Beohar

I saw in the mirror
a disheveled human cast
barely recognizable
for it was clinging onto it's past

I humored myself
at what I appeared to be
there was a deep calm within my heart
even as I looked at the caricature
of reining calamity

but when deeper did I go
into my own cleaved shape
I saw lost amongst the light
my belonging to the darker shade

Yes! There was a streak
of burning of my grievous heart
My mind could deceive me
but the mirror played it's part

Why did you go?
Is this the reason for which you cleaved my life?
That oft in the anguish of my soul
Beautiful poems takes respite
