The Loss

Neelam Dadhwal

The shadow drifts by a tree
of a passing butterfly
all that is remained
of a light,
nothing can lift it up,
stronger as the heavens
the years are struggle
and to look in the oblivion,
the world has names
mad or lame,
too insecure
with the memories
but to rummage my own brain,
my soul.
