Longing 


Climbing the gates and watching the bare backs of cows nestled in the corners 

Imagining the stars and the moon at night in bed while being too terrified to peep out of the window 

Eating till the tummy is full and yet not telling mom for the food was a treat!

Obsession over junkfood, splitting into equal halves, joys of sibling rivalries 

To be a child in a home which no longer exists, I long for the days gone by 

It’s an ache in my heart to know, to accept its lost 

But in memory 

Tonight, as flashbacks visited me, I wasn’t prepared 

Filled with anguish of what was, what could’ve been, there is a sense of loss in me 

Something transient, irretrievable.
