Poetry

Chapter 1

 

She was named after a flower,

a majestic blend of red and blue

wilted before she has a chance to bloom,

smothered by passion that she mistaken as love

her slender frame drowns in sorrow

when her lover boards the train to Moscow.

 

Destitute, she dances cheek to cheek

with strangers

in houndstooth coat

and soft pale hands.

 

An outcast in her family,

shunned by the society,

she sits by the bookshelf

waiting for the song

playing on the gramophone.

 

A stranger knocks on her front door,

a replica of her lover with eyes

the color of thunderstorm

in a different soul.

 

He pays for a night's worth

to taste the flower

nestled in the midst of Shangrila

 

She stares into the mirror,

her majestic eyes glorified

when he sings her name in his breath

as the flower in his father's painting.
