Best Poem of Ananta Madhavan

'Did I Ever Exist? '

I am not sure I ever lived, except in this imagined space,
This concoction of words that perhaps make a little sense
To a kindly heart like yours.

If I was never born,

Was all the world I ever knew
Before I grew to be a person,
Rather than a form of words, your words, this ...

Return a thousand times,
And scrutinise

Each vibrant grace,
Each shadow of surprise
That fleets across

The den of crimes
