Ebb by Sneha Subramanian Kanta

my heart i did slay
in mortal hands;
impoverished it was
as summer passed.
winter was steadfast
to allure vacancy,
closer to the ether
i lay distraught,
burnt leaves spread over
lanes, smoke fumes
were its memory.
i saw the self everywhere
heaps of leaves, the air
my heart wept without
tears on the brow,
emptied only to replenish again.
