My Emotions My Treasure

Have you seen sand

Slipping down your palm

Do you still

Feel unmoved and calm,

Seeping through your fingers

Solid or liquid –

Whatever, nothing lingers

Nothing stays more than

A few moments

Except the memory

That torments

Yet, I cling to that dream

Even though the pain

Makes me scream often

May be I am losing it


Whatever be the cost

Hanging on to the

Last straw

I’ll save what

I cherish most

These emotions proffer me

An ultimate peace within

And create a masterpiece

That’s for me

An award and

A rare win
