Does It End Here?
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
 

Like a book, read, reread, annotated...

Its essence squeezed out... its purpose served...

dog-eared on some dark forsaken shelf of memory

 

once-crisp pages tarnished by the dust of forgotten days

promises – weighted down between busyness

and forgetfulness – colourless, their fragrance gone

 

brittle like flowers pressed between its pages 

mouldy, it slowly crumbles under the burden of futility

gasping for a fresh breath to salvage it from sure ruin

 

We have brought it to this deplorable state

 

Can we nurse back our relationship to glowing health

or will continued callousness let it breathe its last

once we remove it from the ventilator of pretence?
