Read Poetry by Girish Gupta

I walk in the shadow of a cloud

of you, of your memories screaming loud

Of us, of that night and of the pedals of my car

Of my foot on accelerator while the break’s a little far

Of you, and of your pain and of your hand on mine

Of the world slowing down, of being lost in time

Of me withering away, of not being dead yet not alive

Of grabbing the keys that night saying “I’ll drive”

Of your eyes not shining as you lay on your bed

Of you unable to hear my apology being said

Of you in a coma, while I got away with just a scar

Of how different we were, yet how similar we are

You lie there silent while i read poems of you

Of the bracelet you had, and I did too

Of us and friendship and how faithful you are

Of how I’m still sad, and you’re my only star

I wanna see you smile, jumping away every noon

But all I can yet say is that I hope you get well soon
