Feelings stop Flowing

When feelings stop flowing

Scarcity etches deep fissures

Exposing the parched territories

Shallow beds of life suffer silently

Contours of melancholy are evident

Lips dry up- unable to speak

Feelings curled up in a dry lump

Caught in the throat

Chokes the speeches on their track

Tender lushness missing from life

Journey brushes along the thorns

Lacerating the skin with every step©
