Broken Sky - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

When you parted our sky in two halves
It bled white, spreading
The smoky scent of drifted light.
Stars cried tears of Lily petals
Those pricked my skin
Like hails on a wintry morning.
With my blind heart deprived of love
I had nothing to observe,
Only eyes inhaled your promises
Which fell from the cracked sky,
For being wet by
The darkest clouds of desolation.

    Another gem from you Sanjukta.. Again the imagery is synesthetical, which is really, really beautiful. Excellent and touching poem on heartbreak... Thanks for sharing..
