I love this poem. I feel as if it speaks so much to my own experience. As direct as a straight line to the heart. Thank you.
Walling off from experiences. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.
Good to be here...as usual..one gets something very different and unique in poetry..
This is so sad, Gautami.A very profound poem.
Excellent !A true poet seeks, asks questions and is inspired to find answers contained deep in each soul through their creations...you touch so many with your talent and I am grateful to be able to ponder each creation !
Cuts to the chase.Nice job.=)
Ghostly and mysterious, the top of an iceberg story peeking through. The italics in the last line give that wish so much strength, I like the effect.
Thanks for this haunting poem - sad and hopeful and yet resigned.Namaste..........cj

So unusual and so thoughtful.
Very powerful. Wow.
'his muted form'could convey the whole of it.An expression put in words so well.
Powerful and haunting, you've conveyed so much in so few words. I had to come back and read this again. I enjoyed it very much.
So sad when someone builds a wall like this you have a great insight!
Good, intimate piece.
