Read Poem: Departure, by Amol Redij

And suddenly, the ferocious feline, snares me;
with her bovine like-
venomous paws,
lips locked in blood red,
and glow that can only blind.


Awaiting, a moment, longing for them to bind.
A promised decade after lease.

And suddenly, Alas;
yet again, the silk of her hair,
embraced him like a guillotine.

The shivering limbs,
the dimming vision,
the breathless hope,
the paralysed sense…

All of him…
Much of her…
Stays deafeningly echoing,
in the abysmal graves of their souls.
