Buried Letters - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Several love letters
written to you
are buried in my heart
And I am carrying them
With me as a souvenir
To cherish till last breath
I know you must have
Preserved them in some
Undisclosed or unreachable
Destination or place
And occasionally
Must be going through them
Under the clouds
of fear and ecstasy
the buried secrets
may ruin your present
hence you should
release them to the sky
like pigeon or kite
or spread them
in the dust like
burned ashes
the sky will accommodate
them with stars in galaxy
or the earth will hand them
to the winds to spread them
as fragrance
these buried letters will
find a suitable place in our
tomb of past to rest in peace.

    Many of us have written such letters, often to more than just one person. The metaphorical messages are stored in heart and memory and can be read at any time (Report) Reply
