A Circle by Malvika Gupta

A Circle by Malvika Gupta

A circle
A whole
is broken
into its parts;
The Tree of Life,
it’s leaves
have all fallen;
it’s bareness
an emptiness for
all to see;
Yin and Yang
have this time
become not
complementary opposites
but opposites;
The rose is a thorn
like a knife
that continuously
pierces the heart
the pain is continuous and  unceasing;
Oh! What has become
of hearts turned to stone?
The stormy waves crash around those
who were one but now none;
A dark thunderous sky sounds its fury,
urging them to remain untouched in their safe haven/heaven,
their island: to once again, quickly become, eternally one.
