When Silence Roars

(Inspired by the movie Lootera [2013])


The snow-clad tree stood tall braving the blizzard,

for it had promised its last leaf to me, and you.


Silence has always been the bridge between us – me,

the princess and you, her knight in shining armour.


I chirped like a true Pakhi, the myna or magpie,

while you listened draped in a shawl of intent.


Now, my voice is miffed by blood and dread,

while you rant away chasing to hold the life in me.


Ours is a story of pain and love, where I

bare myself in words, and you express


When you say nothing at all.
