Poem: Pain

By: Ranjeet Sarpal

memories

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
