Her Droplets of Mercury


Affections seeped in,

Through cracks and leaks,

On many a state-borders,

Through tunnels, through dams,

In cars, trains and planes,

Love hitch-hiked unseen,

Trickled from one terrain to the other,

Camouflaged into obese droplets of mercury,

It rolled on to its destination,

Oozed out of my panes,

Out of the ventilator,

Out of plug-points,

Boomed out of my phone,

Scooped and thrown in by cellular towers,

I almost sank in her mercury,

In its incessant inflow,

When the celestial Lords took notice,

Happiness had flowed into the wrong channel,

Before it got too late,

They blocked its route,

Dried up those droplets on their way,

Struck grave with cancer,

She’s battling life,

Ticks the clock to a ruthless May…


(This post is dedicated to someone that I really want to be back on her feet again, ASAP.)
