Between the Lines by Neetu

parallel lines

Between the Lines

a comma, a pause—
maybe even a full stop
heaves its way
between the lines

silence lingers to make
a statement, take
a breath, wait
between the lines

no words to complete
just      spaces       that speak
oceans           that flow
between the lines

Endurance by Neetu

Endurance

a feeble flame
does not illuminate
my path on this
dark night

I must stop
until day breaks
and shows me the road
that lies ahead

if there be one
in such dolorous times

Fences

 

now
as then

we draw lines
build and rebuild
fences
with new wire
cut of the same steel
forged in
new factories

still owned and run
by warped minds

A Parting by Neetu

hands with ashes
A Parting

I hold fragments
of you
in my ash-grazed hands
to put them 
in an urn

they sound like 
empty shells as I 
drop them one by one

the fullness 
in my heart leaves
no room for echoes

I know your footsteps
will never return.

The Gardener by Neetu Malik

The Gardener

You water me 
that I may grow
lush and luxurious
 
you prune me
when my branches stray
too far out or too high
 
you mulch me when
you think I may
wilt or die
 
you nurture me as if
I’m too frail to stand
on my own
 
as if without you
I may fail to thrive
 
in truth, maybe it is you
who needs me,
to survive.
