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.
