Because You Will Never Read This
by Divya Chandran
Bookmark and Share
  At night, when we both lay

in bed, pressed against the

barricade between mind and 

body, our little speech bubbles

wreathed in the day’s

discussion of people-

the Thai cafe down the street, 

the Cypriot girl in class, our

shisha plan for Friday, your

eccentric Indophile professor.

you speak to me not through

words, but thoughts, these

thoughts of yours and mine,

met long time ago on the road

of self-discovery, when we

both battled different demons,

back in the days where we spent

less than a quarter of the time

we spend now, in this small

space of comfort, which erupts

into conflict zones, now and then.

the pendulum of our anxieties,

vigorously swing back and

forth, smashing the little cottage

of understanding which we built 

through years of knowing, 

doing, being the best we could be 

and yet, we end up, being victims 

of our own shortcomings,

pitted against each other by 

clashing forces, two opposing

armies of existence, neither

good nor evil, but mismatched,

doomed and primeval.
