Snake


You left me behind like
A snake that sheds its skin
To move ahead callously
Crawling to a new hole
A new terrain, a new prey
While I lay kaput like a diadem
Crushed under enemy’s wagon
Like a sad note, half discernible
Coming from a broken violin
Like that mild reek that springs
From stale forgotten bouquets

I was your skin once, intimate and attached
Now, I am mere an object of odd curiosity
Of strangers with greed gleaming in ice cold eyes,
All bitter gazes and silent taunts that rip as a knife
I know, I know Love, that I will be loved by none
But I also know, I understand that you are a snake
Indeed one…
