A state of unfeeling and numbness
Sculpted me in a lonesome marble
A heart chanting your name day n night
Melting my entity that’s frigid n glacial
Cold of my stone makes the wind chill
Spirited sun rays too have become faded
Although I’m unresponsive, yet narrating
A caged soul’s story – half alive half dead
I beg! Do not adorn me or simplify me
Neither glorify me nor mortify me
In my marble statue love is in the trance
Feel me, to recreate…..the lost romance
