Long Distance Love, Hema Ravi, Chennai


Symptoms of fever invisible
language deficient to express void
familiar surroundings loiter
fond thoughts back and forth.
Whirlwind romance
without ado into oblivion
In the vast expanse
barren existence, anomalous amidst
fully blossomed canopies
Clouds of despair engulfing.

The flower droops
as the sun goes down
night after night sleepless surveillance
seeking sanctuary in solitude’s shore
defenseless to face inquisitive stares
passion cannot articulate
Heart grows fonder in
absence-oft heard
Adoration ready to blossom, bear fruit
Cannot pass the moments extensively…
