Saying Goodbye

I’ve waited aeons for you
all my yesterdays spent
today fading fast
tomorrow an uncertainty…
what if the night consumes the night
an all-pervading darkness
flowing with ease like lava
inundating
clogging pores of consciousness
muffles and then shrouds…
come to me in dreams
a dream that could embrace me
caress
and make
my yesterdays todays
and absent tomorrows
an entire life
to take with me as I leave
fulfilled.

    “Saying goodbye” , conveys its emotionally laden narrative with an intense and palpable gravitas. Few poets,even amongst those registered on this site , are as skilled and persuasive as Madhumita in mastering such poetry.
