I woke up

by Vivek Mukherjee

I wake up,

In an inverted world,

Where I still loved her,

And she was mine.


I wake up,

In a dreamy world,

Where I held her,

And walked the land.


I wake up,

In an embrace of life,

Feeling her breath,

On my parched skin.


I remember the days,

Where we spent, trying to

Come as close to one another,

As we huddled closer and closer, together.

But now……


I wake up,

In an inverted world.

A world from below,

A world, hollow.
