Asking Yourself

Satish Verma

Exploring yourself― 
with an ornate dagger, 
to find the missing link. 

My integrity was at 
stake. From where did― 
you start? 

Bring the steel from 
the sea, and loneliness 
from the storm. 

The beige sunset 
would dare to go ahead 
of the red moon. 

Will you threaten a 
small reply? The lips were 
in the state of siege. 

I will meet you 
one day at distant dangers. 
How far you will go with me?
