Shapeless

By Nitusmita Saikia

Galaxies to galaxies

out of orbit,

Unknown to what you need,

Tapping into the space;

the emptiness...!

Forgot about the presence of the dwarf planet

That was inside you.


Through the slit between you and your emptiness,

Oozing few painful memories ,

From the chest of past,

like the epithets of pathos,

that was in your search to forge the night,

In a sheet of paper drowning in ink,

Out of orbit; tapping into the space,

Into your emptiness...!!!


Exile... Exile... Exile...!!! You heard.

A voice slogging through the dark void,

Hitting every molecules of your emptiness,

It starts to draw the orbit around your presence,

And you, a shapeless mass of nothing...!

embark upon the realm of your reverie,

Looking for the voice

You are about to follow...


At times from a distance,

little far away from your reverie,

Love to watch me,

Love to dig what's there in me,

A desire to explode the mass to see,

Whether I bleed to death or not,

After just few wounds; you would give up,

And enter the mass to be united with,

The existence I value as a part of you and me!
