Nothing much to say..

-Karthik Gurumurthy

Some days, the words go missing,

while I go seeking everywhere,

only to find them curled up at my feet.


Unsure and riddled by doubts,

I wonder, then—

is it their fault or mine,

that I am fumbling?



Silence—stands askance,

and casts me a look,

as if trying to measure

the weight of my unspoken words

against its’ power.


When they come asking

if I’ve conceded defeat,

I pause.

And re-tracing my steps,

I say to them—

some answers are meant to be elusive,

only to hang in mid air,

suspended across the chasms,

for Time alone has the answer.
