Green In Me

Green In Me

written by: Anshika Sharma


That crouching cat
Under my bed;
A pearl shelled in dark,
Reflects the distant green
In her empty
Sea eyes

Sometimes she comes up
And works up the paper-hills
On the side stool,
While I go down
Beneath the reef
And purr.

Yes! I can see it
It’s approaching
But wait, it’s not the lighthouse
It is…another cat
Roaring, gushing green waters
Her eyes
But she is staring at me,
Can I be, really, the distance?
