Witness - Poem by ritty patnaik

in the length and breath
of silence,
i am the only witness
to my souls yearning
for your love.
your silence,
and my eloquence,
had one thing to say.
that we were poles apart.

yet your gestures of love,
my being in love
brought us close together.
before your presence
filled my heart,
now, in your heart,
i am subdued and smug
in your frozen thoughts
i am the loving soul!
