If my inanition comes to your sight

When it seems that our hearts have come unstuck,

Always remember,

The cherry blossoms still twirl around

In the wide blue yonder,

Attired in their soft pink downy robes,

In my perfumey days

In my dawn and my dusk;

Tipped into an unremitting whirlpool

Of varicoloured emotions

In my underwater garden

Teeming with soft sheen of goldfish

My chest is brimming with roses

Wet and aromatic;

I knew you had the edge over me

But I wasn’t even trying to win

My win was contingent on the soft curls of your lips

On the innocent song of your heart;

Those slings and arrows and the catapult

I hadn’t hoarded those stones as yet,

For that one day…

I have tasted those acrid fruits

The seeds are always more of the same;

My empty hands join only in prayer

I tried to match your stride for stride;

It was your unseemly, waspish and curt reply

That broke my stride

The reason why I slink past you


The peeve you wasted on me

A face like thunder

Yet, a heart as soft as silk

The carver, the guiding star, my saving grace

Still throned

Changing the rules

Inanition- lack of vigor; lethargy.
Cherry Blossom
