Poetry 2017 Longlist Abheshek Pandey

Incomplete Conversations

Abheshek Pandey

In the limited time we get
To speak out our hearts,
Soon as our moment starts
They entangle our words in a net

Our incomplete conversations
It’s meant to keep us
Close, but all it does
Is widen the separation!

We dangle on either ends
Of the string they cut –
Trying to reach for the other but
Our words hit dead-end

With just three words
Left for each to say,
They delay it to another day
And kick us to distant worlds.

So, all that’s left to say:
Thank you, our incomplete conversa
