Upside-Down; Inside-Out. - Poem by Arindom Borah

(I)

It was just an
Ordinary day,
The day you walked,
Into my ordinary life.
And,
Turned it,
Upside down with love (unrequited)
Inside-Out with feelings so strange but happy,
That I even shivered sometimes,
In the throes of bliss.

But before I
Could recover from the Shock,
You walked out again,
Leaving in your wake,
The nihilistic embers of,
My heart,
Now fiery red
but slowly cooling down


(II)

That was how
It all began,
my lover, my dimpled cherub,



And...as the years went by
I am and I remain still
Upside-down,
Inside-out

And, you know what?
now it seems almost
NORMAL,
To be this way!
