Debris

I have been broken for so long,
That I have forgotten what it is to be whole.
For ages, to you I have belonged,
That I fail to divorce a body from its soul...

Tinted, for long has been the vision,
That a clear lens doesn’t appeal anymore.
Battered, I have been by the raging storm,
Yet, it does not feel home to be ashore.

Have sought a meaning in turbulence and harbour,
That now in chaos I find my sanity,
Have chased you for long, to free me of my nothingness,
That I see wholesomeness in our own debris...

And now, a silence bellows from the abyss within
And dry are the tears that once kissed the kohl…
True,I have been broken for so long,
That I have forgotten what it is to be whole.
