THE LOVERS

प्रेमियों

एक अधूरी कहानी

AN INCONCLUSIVE STORY

*  

 

they're both asleep

or so it looks like:

limbs entwined and hands entangled like fate's

a flesh and blood thing

 

and the snow's a shroud

or so it looks like:

searing the breath from the bodies and crumpling up

like tears, or a goodbye note

 

and their hair is carved

(or maybe it's just frozen)

but it seems like they're crowned and veiled

in ice

 

and they had lived on the mountain

that much is certain;

and now they're sprawled on its peak like the earth choked on its emotion and

coughed them up like broken glass

 

and their clothes are sea foam

at least, it seems so:

her dress a grey lace fog of the past and his suit an old reminiscence

of softer times

 

and her lips are bloodied

and his are stained blue;

their breath meandering in paintpot swirls and

billowing clouds of purple

 

and the air is dead

or so it feels like:

 the only scent her lingering perfume that once

he claimed tasted like Heaven

 

and black ash flakes

that rhyme with fire

whisper a story down the rugged back alleyways

formed only by trees

 

and they don't once stir

and the moon sings to the stars:

it's half-cut in the sky like it hasn't been

ripped out right

 

and they lovers are asleep

or so it looks like:

limbs entwined and hands entangled like fate's

a flesh and blood thing

 

and maybe it is
