Forbidden 6 - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar

My destiny is contained
In your silence

You prefer absence
I am totally incapable of
using the word

I breath it caress it
Jot it down in the margins
But never utter it

You talk in your sleep
I can not caste away my fears

To be a forbidden fruit
Is such pale metaphor
