Not-Love - Poem by Prachi Gogte

its a not-night again
the electric sky littered with what are not stars
but salt of the marrow
the marrow which holds not blood
memories...
alchemy has turned glass to mirror
and a not-love stares back at me...

pieces of the past come together to make her
and all she wanted to feel
not me...
and she remembers him...
and what was not touch
more...
what was not decent..
not at all..
what was not patient
restless as a nightmare...
but its the nightmares we remember not-dreams...

and its him she remembers..
not-you...

    him is always a special person to beckon unless otherwise its not love--memories are a shadow always walking as nightmare-written well.Innovative (Report) Reply
