The Tempest - Poem by ANJALI KAKATI

You walked into
the dark corridors of my life
like lightening.
For once,
Lighting up
The whole alley.
the naked “me”
I had so painstakingly,
So carefully
All along
in the layers of time.

You stormed into
The calm sea of my life
Like the tempest,
Tearing away
The vast depth
Beneath which
I had
All these days
My deepest desires.

You entered into
The cold valley of my life
Like the thunder,
Reminding me
The songs of life
For which I had
Closed my ears.
