Your memories
On the prowl,
Stalking me
Every moment,
Every where.
In the strand of hair
On the pillow,
In the empty
Flower vase,
In the patina of dust
On the TV screen,
In the  faded bindi
On the dressing table,
In the mocking
Of the lonely mirror.
Your memories,
Hounding me
Closing in,
Every moment,
Putting me
On trial
For allowing
Our love
To be emasculated
By the hypocrisy
Of values;
For letting you go
You needed me most.
The verdict –
The sentence-
To wear
The shroud of
Your memories
Every moment,
Every where,
For ever and ever…..
