Pain often reclines at 

the back of my parched throat

on other occasions it

runs smoothly uninterrupted

in green veins, free-flowing, 

as it is always the case love

is conditional, whereas pain

fills up the thirsty eyes, 

morphing into tiny tender

crystals cascading down

the gaunt cheeks 

without a bang or a crackle 

so quietly, so gently…

      1. Wish I can be so determined, to do exercise every morning without cribbing 😬

    1. Thanks a lot Shantanu, I’m really glad that you liked it, truly appreciate it 🙂

      1. This one is on pain, the next one I wrote is on marriage, a coincidence 😬
