When in my silent mode, I tend to hear myself.
Only that I fail each time I try.
There is this catastrophe inside, this outburst, this
Storm. Too many sounds, too much noise and yet,
too much of Silence.
There is this empty feeling not empty at all,
These pangs, these shivers, these sharp edges
which I fail to bend, that I fail to curve.
Feels like you are projecting continuously, some
Stones on my heart’s wall. Do you know not
How does a mirror feel? When it bears cracks?
Or how does a finger feel when you pierce – ouch
When you pierce forcefully, some thorns?
Or perhaps a chunk of that broken mirror,
How does it feel?
Ask me. Only that I know not
What to answer and how.
