Poem by Sadaf Munshi illustration Pxfuel
Illustration Pxfuel
Ah, the poverty of the written word! 
It does not carry the punctuations 
Nor gestures or embellishments 
Of a spoken utterance 
Listen to the silence!
I went sleepless and troubled  
Hiding under my pallid skin 
As a thick blanket of darkness 
Enveloped the starless night.
This is no dream, my love 
For dreams have no anchors —
You have frozen in space  
Like a timeless statue, 
A figureless corpse
In a remote galaxy. 
Do not be disturbed 
When I break through 
Your protective armors 
And quietly slip in.
