Artwork: ‘The Silence Within’
Artist: Adrita Biswas

Holding the lip
and stretching it from him
to her lip,

She says,
‘I am lost in the lawn —
and I see a single rose’

The lips touch hers —
and she realises, she sees two.

She says,
‘Don’t baffle me with memories,
rather make me live them’

Memories trickle down her navel
making her realise —
the shrinkage.

She says,
‘If that’s your way to help,
then why not rain to erase!’

She closes the album —

watching pots of wet roses
decorating her balcony.

She says smiling,
‘Once they were all jealous
of mine’.
