A Lost Monsoon

The “new” sheds its charm
Amateurish and incomplete
And stoops down –
As if in defeat –
To the peerless grace and completeness
Of what was –
Of the beauty in cracked walls and leaking roofs
And wrinkled hands and damp floors,
Of an old rain that was a unique contrast;
Days when the droplets poured into our hearts
And a warmth spread in our souls –
As if proving to be a visual oxymoron;
Today, the rain sends chills down the spine
Forming a frozen void within,
Searching in vain
For that lost solace,
The cuddling hands
And that serene face
That are now stiff and pale
And numb and cold –
Indifferent and invisible
With tears burnt
And emotions buried –
Dissolved in the monsoon.
