Poem by Anisha Mukherjee, 2021
Now that we are apart
Which part of you died?
The heyday of our love
Now the nightmare of your nights?
We say we love this pain
We say we comfortable in this
Don’t your heart still, wants a little warmth?
Calling my name and finding me by your side?
No, it’s not a broken heart’s calling
No, it is not a poem of regret
I say it is a conversation
Wrapped in a rhythm
You said if I miss you, know that your love was true
I said if you miss me, you say your love was true
What about the love I have for you?
You said it was not true!
How can a love like this be one-sided
You said it was easy for you
Do you still deny my love?
Or is it a punishment from you?
Lost in our memory
I still want to be with you
The truth is, we can never be
How hard it is to accept the truth?
