We, like two openings facing
aware of any of each other’s ramblings.
Everyday, salutation, amenities and laughter,
everyday, a tryst for tomorrow,
life, a mirror of heaven, but…alas
shorter than the night and days of June and December
now my heart is broken and tired,
because one of the openings is shut.
Neither the sun did sorcery nor the moon magic,
Curse be upon the journey, he did it all – everything that happened.
