The Trench - Poem by indira babbellapati

It was once assumed
We stood at the same spot
By and by
The earth caved in
Surreptitiously
And there emerged
A widening trench

We now stand
A trench apart
The trench patiently gathers
All the emotions slipped into it
In the nights it sings
To wake me up
The open space echoes
With the ballads sung
To bring a smile or two
On my damp cheeks…

Wipes away my cheek
As it goes on singing
All that it gathers
From the passers-by

I smile
But somehow
There’s some difference!
