EPIPHANY written by Dilip Mohapatra at Spillwords.com



written by: Dilip Mohapatra



When the rarefied daylight
diffuses and dreams into
the dense darkness of the night
and I take refuge
in the shadows of my
corruptible dreams
away from the scrutiny
of your absent eyes
and can’t even remember
when the last kiss
evaporated from my lips
or when was it last
I clasped your hands
when you could not feel
your fingers.

How long will I hide
and be scared
to defrost my frozen feet
and won’t have the guts
to resurrect the light
that died young in my
untamed shadows
again and again?
I know
that day will surely come
when I shall see
the light of the day uninterrupted
and when my bereaved
shadow would lament for my
body’s warmth.
