Poetry 2016 Longlist, Swetha M S

Lost Legacies
Swetha M Surendran

Lost are the legacies
That once lit up your life.
Now fasten your memories
to your sealed heart; move on.
What you felt for others
was never nourished by anyone.
So stop pretending you care
and rise up to meet the worse.
Cease your futile efforts to
cross the sea of commitments.
Base your vision of future
to thrive in adversities; to shine.
Embrace the ideals of reality
even if it is bitter to the core.
Never be so transparent that
others could see through you.
Meet me in a world where

You and I could pluck out

the tousled roots of fixity.

Together we could cut off

the shadows of expectations

And trace the beauty of

ethereal light of wisdom
