Poem 297: A Lone Leaf

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

A Lone Leaf

innocent childhood friendship

killed in time of space

project disclosed

never intentionally

words like waves' rise and fall

brutal intention cheats

bro suffocated sis

or hubby suffocated wife

truth in dark grave of jealousy

childhood games

eyes of tranquil serenity

words of unhidden emotions

touch of unexcited intentions

her face forgotten

still whimsical whisper of chats

and smell of warm bond

haunting rational mind of present times

her parents

in dark corner of lost faith

no way to ask why

query hurts shock

doubt hurts sadness

none will come back

death of exact story

with aloofness of isolation

a life lost

a friend lost

all bonds never romantic

yet authentic
