youth

A Poem by Deepshikha

youth
like smoke slipping through my hands
tendrils curling around my fingers
teasing
losing
trying to grasp what might have been mine
the dreams
the laughter 
the endless wishing and wanting
exaggerated but unbound delight

swept away by cruel words
empty promises
broken truths
and vapid efforts;
like holy water 
rushing to wash away sin--
as if life were a sin!

and now that the smoke is cleared
my hands hold on to nothing but air
and unyielding failures
teasing
losing
realizing the dreams are grey 
and the laughter hollow--

no more than smoke
but much less all the same
