my mind murmurations
harbor a January in May.
my parallel universe
forgives you for the collision.
I am in a spherical cage,
I am not bound really.
the air drifts a part of me
and I become a spring somewhere!
longing for that a drop trickles down your eyes.
At that precise moment, I can’t sense a part of me
that you can!
I know its tenderness.
I know its power.
but then it ebbs out to become a dream,
it becomes a year in another hour.
this is the flux of relationships.
it makes us a living being,
strenuous, overwhelming, fragile!
