Poetry: Rajnish Mishra

Rajnish Mishra

Phoenix Rises

There’s no logic in the land of emotions,
over which tears drop without explanation.

I am attached to my past, so much, so that I
keep pushing my present into my past; sucking

my future into my present. That’s why when I saw
him trying to severe himself from his past and then

feeling the pain of that effort in his words and on his face,
I connected with him and lived that pain and then

it happened. Emotions swept my feet clean
from under me and I observed the flow closely.

They came after a long time.
They embarrassed me in public.
