Withdrawal

It’s time to withdraw
Slowly, dwindling from your hair,
Eyes, lips, through neck,
Down, down and down
As pulling a quilt
From the foot-end.

It’s time to withdraw
My over- spread shadow
From your torso,
Through the mattress, the wall,
The window- panes
Back onto the devil- tree
Sprawling on your yard
From where I can see
My zeal and zest
Playing still on you.

It’s time to withdraw
The mist back into the woods
As summer is nearing apace.
And with me
Your over-spilling courage,
The spirit and vigour
I instilled on you.

About Fathima Manal

Dreams,fantasies,words and rhythm-other than skin,bones and muscles I am made up of these.With every drop of blood that my heart pumps,a new dream forms in me.With every breathe,i take the surroundings too inside me.And my poems are just the minute regurgitants of what i accumulate within. I am a doctor from Kerala,India,who should not be supposed to but is in deeply love with words and books more than medical books.Hope you enjoy my poems......

    The mist back into the woods
    As summer is nearing apace.
    Perspective a great write emerging the soul to enhance its length.
