Against the Waves




Dr. Ram Krishna Singh

The crowded lift and emptiness of the flat
doesn't help me resurrect what's gone

late at night I may pile hopes on a pale paper
trying to invent a new life to live with

end up seized by pain trolling in the shady light
double bed, blank mirror, and still greyer dawn

the pillow hurts, the image derides, the prayers fail
the roaring inside, the ghostly silence

and unfading darkness. I'm no Odysseus
but keep straying against the waves.
