Together

Together short poem

Photo by eflon

I envy the farmer’s wife
Sitting beside her partner for life –
Gazing together into the sunset.
This togetherness is not there,
We have lost it – I don’t know where.

Together we sleep in a double bed –
You with one pillow tucked under your head,
And I, for my back, I now need all four;
Together we sleep, we toss and we snore.
Together we sit at the table and dine –
You with your plate, and I naturally with mine;
You finish and leave and I’m left alone
Chewing in solitude. Why did you come home?

Together we travel, side by side,
I at the window, you at the aisle.
You love to drive, but what about me
Navigating and missing the scenery?

Selfish am I? What about you?
Are we together? Tell me, please do.

I read your face, your body,
Can you not do the same for me?
Must I tell you I’m tired or in pain
Or just need some space? Tell me again –
Are we together?

We talk, discuss, a sharing of views?
I differ, you switch off, some excuse.
As we clasp each other in surrender,
Is it routine or are we together?
Wait,
Don’t turn your back, hold my hand, remember
Those times when we were really together –
Once more.

All humans are part of one god. But still they fight among themselves. In the name of religion, Ever at the name of caste, At the name of the country. Why cannot we all live together? If we all live

We Will Scream Together

We Will Scream Together short poem

Managing his guilts to seduce the nocturnes he left the gray area, surging with a wandering death on the half broken stairs – before a closed gate was put on the pages, he was trembling like toothed quaking aspen. The
