An Inhibition - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
I sat quite patiently
Willing to lend myself an ear,
To think of things within me rumbling
The things that I very much fear.
You see, I don’t easily mix up with strangers
Unlike my best friend, very dear
Who always has something ingenious to say
Even if a man would from the Mars appear!
But I withdraw into a reclusive shell
With a tortoise like tough exterior
And come out slowly like a star
That after a long drawn day at dusk appear.
