without her hands in mine


In order to erase my name from the soil; all I did was
kick the loose sands with my feet; and it blended
almost magically with the mundane mud,
In order to erase my name from my skin; all I did was
wash it with stringent antiseptic; to swipe out the
most minuscule trace that might be incorrigibly
remaining,
In order to erase my name from my lips; all I did was
to purse them passionately with my tongue; then see
for myself how handsomely did the ink coalesce in
entirety with my saliva,
In order to erase my name from the walls; all I did
was to paint them afresh with loads of scintillating
whitewash and poignant color,
In order to erase my name from the tree trunk; all I
did was slice off that chunk of guilty wood; with
effortless ease and incoherent strokes of my lanky
pocket knife,
In order to erase my name from the birthday cake; all
I did was to gobble it with an insatiable frenzy;
guzzle down the most inconspicuous of ingredients
adhering to my throat; over a glass of cool water,
In order to erase my name from a bonded sheet of white
paper; all I did was to use a gargantuan rubber;
caressing it arduously across the squalid sheet; to
make the stain vanish into thin oblivion,
In order to erase my name from the transparently
sparkling mirror; I applied few pints of stale liquid;
got rid off the same with incredulous ease; rubbing it
with a soft blanket of sponge,
In order to erase my name from the greasy kitchen
table; all I did was to nonchalantly dismiss off the
pool of oil; languidly towards the hollow sink,
In order to erase my name from my diabolically bald
scalp; all I did was to grow a new mass of hair; which
beautifully camouflaged it and shimmered magnificently
under the river of pearly moonlight,
In order to erase my name from the artificially
embossed pencil tip; all I did was to chew it
phlegmatically; and at the same time triggered the
dormant cells of my brain to imagine till
unprecedented limits,
In order to erase my name from the passionate sea
shores; all I did was wait for the waves to swirl
ecstatically; joyfully slap the sands and brutally
dismantle the synchronized alphabets,
In order to erase my name from the swanky car
windshield; all I did was to switch on the long
wipers; which swiped off even the most diminutive
trace of dirt; metamorphosing its demeanor as if I had
just purchased it from the showroom,
In order to erase my name from my eye; all I did was
to simply wink; see for myself as to how insipidly it
disappeared along with my volatile film of emphatic
tears,
In order to erase my name from the regional town map;
all I did was to substitute it with the initials of an
entity more proficient than me; more versatile than me
in all respects,
In order to erase my name from the records of heinous
crime; all I did was drift my life away from the most
obsolete shadow of evil; spend the remainder of my
breath left in philanthropically serving all mankind,
In order to erase my name from the cheque; all I did
was adroitly replicate it with the profound seal of my
bohemian thumb,
In order to erase my name from my friends heart; all I
did was neglected him a trifle in his times of
unsurpassably hopeless distress,
In order to erase my name from the robust bone; all id
did was to offer it to the famished stray dog; who
pulverized it within seconds into raw chowder; with
the insurmountable tenacity in his teeth,
But when I tried to erase my name from hers; that very
instant I transformed into worthless streams of
condemnable ash; left for my heavenly abode; brutally
penalized by the Almighty; and this time without her
hands in mine.
