New poetry by Sarika Jaswani (artincrochet) : Since You’ve been gone…

Since you’ve been gone…

I’m a tornado
  Of grief and thirst
Eye an anxious nimbus
  Mouth spinning, pining hole

Uprooted laughter
  Roofs of utterance blown
Reduced to rubble
  Remnants of regrets 

Sun comes as
  Wordless numbing calm
Empty
  Falls
    The
       Shade

Time rushes back to past
Comes to stand     Still in the present now

Lapsed life
  Crawls forward without you

Rueful Days
Fitful nights
Guilty breaths

Ghosts of your memories
  Haunt the moments that
coerce to move on
Void of your absence
 Weighs heavy on heart to
carry on

Purple Chrysanthemum
 Petals of tears fall
On lane of reminiscence
 Where you walk
unchaperoned

In turning hues of seasons
 In lascivious tremulation of
green lacewing
I sift arms of earth that rock
your last sleep
 I see your essence
   to unearth
  my reason for being

Since you've been gone
