We were told of castles and wars lined with men,
Of passages that held an effervescent charm.
From "A Rational Stance" by Amrita Sharma
Encased within the falling hopes,
That were once destined to entice your heart.
From "A Box of Fumes" by Amrita Sharma
Since last year I often get up at nights,
Or look up each morning before the sunrise,
And the skies appear more strange to me each time.
From "Skies" by Amrita Sharma
Each time you touch the concrete wall beside which you stand,
You leave marks and patterns of the moist soil,
Creating more memories each time you think of the ones you had.
