A small piece of time (Poetry)

Yes I do get poetic once in a while. Here are some words 🙂 – A small piece of time

 

A small piece of time - Ashish SehgalA small piece of time,
when u were away,
it was a little day of distance,
a few weeks ago..
and today,
when I look back,
a small piece of time
has blown itself
into a fully grown year
even a few weeks  taller.

A little piece of time
comes like that huge wave
I hug and hold tight
my little sand house
on the wet beach
in hope that maybe
something is saved
but, like it always happens,
a patch of cloudy darkness
faces me, undeterred,
opening its large mouth
and ready to gulp the past

A small piece of time,
changing shapes and sizes,
priorities chasing each other,
morphing into assorted emotions.
The ever growing uncertainty
takes a smooth blanket of silence
tight lipped about tomorrow
slipping its know-all head
under the heavy covers
prefers to sleep peacefully.

~ Ashish Sehgal
