You Are My Neighbor! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Peeping through the tinted window,
Of the invisible kingdom: watching below,
And around of my every acting shadow,
YOU are really my neighbor in masquerade.

Keeping the ears pressed to the wall of the souls,
Recording every movement of this body that rolls,
Holding the binocular to issue the karmic effects,
YOU are my wonderful neighbor who never reflects.

Treasuring silence when there is commotion in homes,
Acting like ignoring with half closed eyes behind the frames,
Observing the types of attires that I wear to and from,
YOU are my determined neighbor who has no other Rome.

Though I know YOU watching and stalking me everywhere,
Though I am aware of YOUR presence in your eternal foyer,
Though YOU behave as a policeman on a bicycle mover,
I always love YOU as YOUR omnipresence makes me safer.
