A Poem by SAGAR

This is a ghazal form in poetry where each line has a syllable count of 13


Why do you wear a bindi on  forehead, we don’t meet

I can’t tolerate your cerise widespread, we don’t meet


You continue to smudge kohl in  the  hazel black eyes

Send in a deluge of your tears instead, we don’t meet


I am shocked to see a diamond bracelet  on your wrist

Cut my veins open, imagine bloodshed, we don’t meet


The cloud spied on you applying red lipstick last night

I can love, your betrayal isn’t well read; we don’t meet


Looking glass glanced at you draping a charming sari

You lie on rose, I remain on death-bed; we don’t meet


The pond seized the reflection of your feet with anklet

Water is awed and I didn’t walk ahead, we don’t meet


Moon chased you applying  sindoor on  parting of hair

Some rituals are not meant to  retread, we don’t meet


Use mascara on eyebrows and henna  on hands now

Ask Sagar, is there a word left  unsaid, we don’t meet
