Poetry 2014 Shortlist, Rachna Gupta

In Search of Peace


As the rains fell,
Her vulnerability decreased
As her tears were no longer visible
For all to see

She longed for a caress
She hoped for love
Her heart bled
And then she gave up
Wanting …. Hoping….wishing….
She felt the Gods did not notice
They did not care
For a part of their creation
That was no longer going to be there
The rain drops continued to fall
She grew more restless
The nights became longer
And one day she left
Went away to a place where she no longer needed the rains
A place where her tears would finally stop!
