Some Relationships
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
  Not a step fully in
Not a step fully out
Neither midway path
Often tight-rope walk
 
Speak if spoken to
Each word weighed
Carefully considered
Eye contacts avoided
 
Smiles are out
Lips pursed
Better zipped
Eyes downcast
 
Mind scared to think
Heart scared to beat
Eyes scared to see
Tongue tied in knots
 
Shadowy existence
Living out a curse
Moving in mimes
Communication terse
 
Tension mounts
Blood pressure shoots
Pulse rate races
Silence deafens
 
Pressure cooker whistles
And lets out steam....
