The Ruthless You

Why did you vanish,
without announcing and quietly
tip toeing with bare feet
leaving behind your obnoxious thoughts,
for my defiant mind to keep

And no matter how much I abstain,
you unceremoniously revisit,
encroaching every moment,
invading every space,
turning me insane
and leaving me entwined
in a labyrinth of hopeless deceive

  1. she walked normally right in front of you. She must have trampled your feelings into ashes. She was not the right fit with you I can admit maybe ? Great way of creating such thrilling deep poems Shantanu !!
