A form divides you and me, sets us apart, on the two ends of the universe. I swim across and reach you, only to find that the universe moves along with you and me. Nevertheless, you have left behind your radiance, your presence, maya, it cannot be moved, or removed , even by the heavens. I sink into your presence. I can see you across at the other end. I am no longer myself. I can see you see me from the other end, but you see yourself across the universe. I have lost my identity in your splendour. I can only experience, I cannot express, the sinking feeling when your outer form dissolves and I am blinded by your brilliance, shattering the darkness. How foolish of me to quantify! A brief moment of oneness, I am taken over by you, a moment further can crush me to dust, but it is no longer than eternity.

a secret

there are words
unspoken in years
tears frozen

like fallen leaves
which carpet
and hide your path

where do they go?
they touch the shore
they touch your feet
and tell you a story
they crawl
on the slippery sand
crave for an embrace
why do you think
the sea is salty?

In the evening of an unloved life,

I can write to non-existent people
I can love and secretly love the same person
I can remember the names of my enemies
I can sleep through the winter
I can read poems and not feel guilty
I can walk on fallen leaves and hope
