On Henrietta Street

The children howl, the house is hell
you close your eyes to cast that spell

Rising high above the endless squabbles 
to meet me down upon those sodden cobbles

The rain and fog are gently taunting
your white shirt billows, opaque and haunting

On Henrietta Street…

Two hundred stairs, do I descend
with full-beam smile to my treasured friend

These precious moments, we get to steal

An Eyelash Breadth Between Us

Lit monochrome by the moon
we dance across silver sands

Because, like our relationship,

It is final.

There is no going back,

only forward; ink building

and growing like our connection,

every single day.

Buried Within…

The invisible truth and

The voiceless words

Both are pertinent …still today

 

There was no escape route

Nor there will be one any day

Maybe not so memorable

Like the penned down words

Of the love poems

 

Or like the melancholic lovers

With the old photographs

Torn, yet not faded out completely

 

Mine was not so with...
