Less painful than death?
Lot more like lifelessness

Clutching air in hungry fists
Gulping in desperation at
Dried drops
A defeated battle fought
For the reward –

Holding on to the watery reflection
Of moon… soon to be
Disturbed by the ripples
Heart’s faint pounding
In search of the beat
Employment agency could have found
Enough vacancy
grasped at once…
Well! Emptiness filled every corner
Brimming over…

Absence filled my presence
A formlessness galloped
And controlled reins

Fighting a faceless foe
Groping.. grappling… gawking…
Emptiness, the eternal enemy.
