Amnesia by Sachin Rana

I will let the sea recite my poems

And the waves carry my words,

My mouth is sealed

And my eyes cannot talk.


Sands of time haunt me

So does the cosmic clock.

I know time is relative.


I look at the damp red wall in front of me,

Some photo frames,

A broken mirror,

A calendar hanging.

Have old pictures with faces

I don’t recognize;

They look happy.

The broken mirror

Splits my reflection into two;

I can’t remember the second one.

The calendar

Has some dates marked,

But I can’t remember.
