Poetry 2017 Longlist

Incomplete Conversations
Abheshek Pandey
 
In the limited time we get
To speak out our hearts,
Soon as our moment starts
They entangle our words in a net
Our incomplete conversations
It’s meant to keep us
Close, but all it does
Is widen the separation!
We dangle on either ends
Of the string they cut -
Trying to reach for the other but
Our words hit dead-end
With just three words
Left for each to say,
They delay it to another day
And kick us to distant worlds.
So, all that’s left to say:
Thank you, our incomplete conversa-
