Loss

Loss by Nupur Nair

I lost someone irreplaceable,
Saying this does not make me believe it,
But denying it does not bring you back.
Although, I know I’ll keep trying,

I would always speak of your friend dreadfully, when they asked me about my fears,
I knew that I would meet grief in this lifetime,
Although, I didn’t expect you to be the mutual friend that introduces us,

I guess heaven is better than earth,
Its walls may be strong enough to cradle your magnitude,
The walls down here have cracked from your unapologetic boldness,
Earth was never ready for you, for your sincere honesty and raw complexities,

There is an indescribable aura about your presence. Yes, there still is.
Your presence did not leave us with your body,
How can something as cowardly as death wash away your existence?

This aura speaks to me like you did once,
I am still in the process of understanding its tongue,
Although not as sharp as yours, it is magnifying,
It is built with your rigid sternness and tough love,

These feelings insist I feel every molecule of your absence,
These walls insist their shadows hold every molecule of your presence,
And while I deny them both,
These tears insist I don’t.

Condolences by Nupur Nair

I found some sugar-coated words,
To fill our paper thin silences,
They were used by acquaintances,
To fill their sweet condolences,
They masked their sympathies,
To reveal their forced sorrows,
These are the words I stole,
To invite our hopeful tomorrows.
