Poetry 2013 Shortlist, Nilanjana Adhya

His Death - This Too Shall Pass

(Written in the memory of Filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh.)
Not an excruciating pain,
Not an injury of the irrecoverable kind,
Not an event in history that can repeat itself, Yet
A displacement –
In the mind of certain others.
The displaced-
Have no form and
Cannot be measured, Yet
They are emotions which shall just pass; and
Onto certain others,
When I die.
