Akanksha Subba: Figures of Thought: Collegiate Voices across Spaces


Song
The romance we think is no less than some jargons.
It was indeed us as Perfectionists,
Who made us two such refined, with each memory;
We held of melodies that never rhymed.

The unaware news of your lover’s betrayal.
Soon was to be a writer’s new story,
But truth to be told, I was the song you name ‘Untitled’,
We held of melodies that were never merry.

I write of you in many springs to come
Just when I first wrote of you,
Then curse at the monsoon;
For you abandoned the girl who waited for your return.

Renting Her Heart

Walking past your lane; reminds her of you
Even though the both never walked the path with togetherness.
Miserably she missed the whispers of the late night conversations;
Do you talk about the ‘old kind of love’ to someone else?

Exchanged talks about luncheons and Duchess,
Monsieur and Lords, out of all romances.
In midst of modern romanticism;
Perhaps, only she admitted the Old kind of love.

When was it that you decided to sing to her?
When was it that you designed the banality?
Platitudinous was for you to know of her heart,
Heart-rending it was for her.
