A Memory of Madness


I stopped breathing,

Holding your hand - 

There was heavy silence

With the way the leaves were falling


I looked out the window and

A droplet of water froze in mid-air


I pulled out a strand of sound wave

From a cricket's eternal cry


The world was shifting

To where, or how, I did not know


I was careful not to cry

Not to wake-up anybody

From their comfortable sleep


The moon was shining bright

There was rosewater in the air


Your whole life was submerging

Like a submarine

The last page of a novel

A dying light


And then there was nothing.
