AWAY FROM ME BY BRIJ KAUL

She

Is   away from me

Caught up in the storm

of pandemic virus

with no means to travel

Waging a war of attrition

to

Come in close vicinity

In fact into the rhythm

of my balmy lap

I am drifting alone

in titanic deluge

of my love

bemoaning bewailing the

order

‘to stay- in- Home.’

rattling my mind by browsing

through pages of tome

watching waiting in vain

tingling the nerves of my brain

  in a state of intense strife

          Standing lonely on the square of

daedal paths jostling for life

She

is away from me

strutting in the room

huffing puffing like a

fluttering bird across

vast limitless blue sky

unawares

of what when where why

         separation anxiety whittling

down b’cause of

worldwide Corona Cry.

afflicting the people to die.

she

is away from me

waging a war of attrition

praying just praying

longing

to be with me.

  1. When loved ones are away, we miss them always especially when lonely during the dark days of complete lock down.
    Very nice poem with lovely vocabulary and sincere confession and expression
