Lost Photograph

Updated: Jul 23, 2022


Someone was shouting

loudly of a lost photograph---

someone turned round quietly

gazed me from toes to nose.

I never accepted that

it was me---

I just nodded my head

till my eyes fell down.

Such intensity of pain

shattered me inside

Why was it?

Was it a dripping roof

falling on my wound

Was it the leg exposed

from quilt of my mother?

My eyes were Milton

and my hands trembling

when candle wax kissed

me like a lover

and I smiled

with broken canines.

Now the tie hanged me

and my court broke my ribs

I remembered myself.
