A Deafening Epilogue

A Deafening Epilogue

written by: Sarmistha Gupta


Starry epitaph
lacing my dreamlike photograph

My plastic body
sequinned cosmic

Drooping lashes sow fantasies
shadowy vermilion; satin locks

Blinded I travel
mesmerising lights uncut
walking in surreal rains

Dumb tunnels inconsolable
waving my skeletal fabric

She lived to let it be
She breathed to heave peace
She cried to smother love

Stairs to my afterlife
I cling to ivory bannisters-
