Poem: Pain

By: Ranjeet Sarpal


Pain survives on its capacity to evoke memories
Carefully selectively
Memories are underpinned
Then repetition of selective memories
deepens the agonized self
Triggering sea storm in blood veins .
Words are recalled
instinctual touch is forgotten.
The broken strands of hair
Conscientiously collected from the pillow
Lying in the shape of the head
