Reaching for the Concrete Moon ~ Nishka Ramkhelawan

She descended to her knees
in aspiration,
to bury her feelings
that turned futile
and started bleeding with suppressed emotions.

Immense teardrops leaked from her eyes;
the cumbersome rainclouds in her mind
destructively gyrated in their turbulent nature.

She cried a river,
with livid, tattered currents
silently flowing down her face
onto the isolated soil.

She wanted not to be the last leaf
on a tree before winter began.
