You

You
Dr Sangeeta Sharma

You
A churning ocean,
Turmoil inside,
Quiet outside.
A deep reservoir of repertoire
A spring of signifiers
Who can conjure inexistent worlds
With the wave of your mighty pen
Evolve intricate metaphors
Create portmanteaus of sorts,
Sketch exclusive images
Compare dissimilarities
You
Spin creative worlds
Those delight others,
And
Dream of a just,
Equitable world,
Where everybody lived well!
You,
My poet,
My inspiration,
Make mundane things look beautiful,
In most ugliness.
Still care for the
Same brutal world!
