Many Thousands Miles Of Separation - Poem by Bishnupada Sethi
We are just across
In the same house-
The wall which existed much before,
But you have really measured
Many thousands miles of our separation.
How the time changed so fast
Since when -
We thought our paths were converging
From a time when we'd met.
A mere sight of discomfort
Often I would love to feign though-
Drew so much of your attention.
We both thought
There could never be a time
We hardly could thrive alone!
A time of total darkness
We saw clouding
Even such a feeble thought!
Yet today I lie here-
Not being able to scare a fly
Ruling me all over-
I don't feel any hurt.
You are busy
Planning for a time beyond this-
As few more events are mere formalities
Soon to get over.
I don't exist,
You have to erase some memory.
Life is to be lived.
It was another period of your life
You have to forget
And you got to march ahead of it.
