Love in the Thin Air Died by Komaljeet Kaur

Empyrean chided the dark and coppery clouds

when globules of thundering dismal in her eyes felt ingrate

head lowered and demeaned;

they left her remorseful eyes en bloc.

The skinny, stubborn, pleasantly intoxicating smoke fleered;

undressing the fleshy overcoat.

The noisy turbulent torrent kissed her rheumy eyes

and

roused her dead soul with a gentle nudge.

The absolute stillness in her bloodshot eyes began

screaming all the things

that her lips never talked about.

Purposeless gray fumes hushed the cloudburst,

her flooded eyes muttered maledictions;

courtesy lost a way back;

the smoke thus wandering alone!

A figure confirmed its presence in her mind,

“two bodies and two souls dancing,

 as lunatic wind sings besides;

one’s polished face and other’s sunken cheeks suffused with redness”

She felt the same gentle nudge of the past.

“A wicked grin narrowed his eyes.

Promises shattered before they were made.

And he broke her first”.

Lavender leaves had their fill of merrymaking;

felt homelike, cradled in their lady’s icy hands.

Her red cheeks welcomed the rain.

Her full, crimson lips playing with the heavenly water had no complaints.

Her flavoured hands collaborated with the musky air around.

Azure sky shed tears on the golden valley;

while rehearsing a love song from the busy golden bees.

Fragranced lilies rejoiced and winked at the sky.

She fixed not the pieces now, instead buried the broken heart.

And left; dancing and smelling the rain around.

The love in the thin air died.

    Komaljeet’s words softly dance into the reader’s heart. They speak of love and heartbreak and memories that rouse deep hurt. The rain and tears wash away the sorrowful past. One must bury a broken heart with care and dignity. Yes, love in the thin air died. An emotional and moving piece.
    Congratulations Komaljeet!

    Truly beautiful. These lines captivated me:

    “Her flavoured hands collaborated with the musky air around.
