EARRINGS

- Sushant Yadav

Nov 7, 2018-

 

 

 

“I wish I could change you

The way you changed those earrings.”

 

  ****

Just like the tinkling of those earrings,

Mesmerise the wind,

Your songs,

Are cherished by my heart.

 

Just like those earrings, 

Penetrate your skin,

Your memories,

Pierce my heart.

 

 ****

It hurt every single time, 

you tried to detach them,

for a while.

I thought you wore them as an emblem, 

of your pride.

But I was blind.

I was fooled by the hopes of forever.

 

Until that day,  

When you changed those earrings.

That day,

I understood you had different ones for 

different occasions. 

Different ones for different lovers.

 

That day,

 I realised nothing is forever.

Except,

Those holes in your earlobes

Left by those earrings.

And this hole in my heart, 

Left by you.

 

Yadav is a BTech student at JNTU College of Engineering, Hyderabad, India
