ZEBRA-CROSSING

How long
The road between us can stretch?
How far
My sweetheart can you go?
Charcoal has its limit on elasticity
Nothing can expand beyond its limit
This much physics I know,
But how do I cross this stretch
Without the bridges of your eyes
There are things beyond physics
In this world too,

When you break all barriers
Ten days can get you apart by ten years
You may walk the road of melting charcoal
But how do you cross the zebra-crossing
That’s frozen on indifference

How distinct
Inside us we can tuck our beliefs?
How permanent
Dissimilarity can become?
Water has its freezing point, I’m sure
Blood must have one for it too.
But aint I’m scaling extremities
Life merely demands equilibrium
There are things beyond physics
In this world too

So many things.. I know

But
When you break all barriers
Ten days can get you apart by ten years
You may walk the road of melting charcoal
But how do you cross the zebra-crossing
That’s frozen on indifference

How do you….. ?
Zebra-crossing…?
How?

  1. Just saying: When you hear hooves think ‘zebras’ not ‘horses’ – poetry inhabits the Serengeti of the psyche.

  2. I love it. The zebra and the “frozen on indifference” – a superb image! I think your poetry is absolutely stunning, i cant stop saying that! You are one of the gems on here and im happy to know you!
