where do I begin ?
To shake off the memories
Like a dog coming out of a pool of water I try,
But like that bright green color that never leaves your child's hair-
Days and days after playing Holi -memories don't leave me.
All unfair things leave me numb
So does this death,
Death they say is the great equalizer,
How can unfair things ever be an equalizer?
Promises unfulfilled,dreams snatched away,
plannings for a lifetime left in the middle,
Chats uneaten,pujas unperformed,
Houses yet to be made homes
kilometers of colorful dreams -
Clipped into few centimeters
In a dark intensive care unit of a hospital.
Not knowing how to move on
Like a dog in vain I try to shake off memories.
