In Place

Everything has to be kept 
In place
Keys, soul, braclets, ear rings, 
Heart, voice messages, feelings. 
It won’t work any other way.

A slight difference 
And she would come to know:
You missed her more than you fake.

People usually do the Otherwise

I came home
And you were weeping
In the corner of that tiny room.

Remember the day?
The barber had cut your hair way too short:
That you wanted it to be a ghazal 
But it had turned into a haiku.

I fell for you that day
Without thinking
Almost instinctual
Like fish falls for bait.

I fell for you
Not because you were weeping.

You were weeping for something
That would definitely grow back.

People usually do the otherwise.

They say
Don't scratch the wound 
When it is healing.

They just don't know 
I scratch 
so that
It doesn't go away.
I scratch so that it
Stays where it is.
I scratch its edges so as 
To feel it from the inside.

Love being the wound thus
I'm both ill and healing
