Unpacking memories

I had moved to this place long ago
The memories still packed, so tightly
that I dared not unpack, lest the floods
should sweep me back to the halcyon days

But unpack I had to,
to ward off impending implosion, choking me.
The trembling hands, the moist eyes
Of hers, staring at me, mischievously

“I told you, I won’t let you go first,
ladies always first, you insisted” ,
Alas, The floodgates opened furiously
“But couldn’t we go together?

Beyond the Rainbow formed in
The tear sized droplets of hundreds
Of hues and colours that sounded
The divine melodies unheard

  1. Lovely poem Rajendra. It brings out the loneliness one feels when one loses his life partner
