Is it over yet?

Is it over yet?

A Poem by Sakshi

Our soldiers go through a great ordeal. This is an attempt to understand the trauma of soldiers who came back to normal living after suffering for a long time, and the ones who did not return - at all


is it over yet?

I feel closer to heaven..hope I’m not dying.. 

Even if I am, I’m smiling.. because your just besides..

With tears soaking me, I try to absorb so much love..

I know I wont get this feel again, not even in the heavens above…


What was dormant inside me is now evoked again..

I can smile and cry all at once, and it’s not a game..

I try to silent my sighs, but they wanna cry out to you..

Just say your name again and again and see nothing beyond you..


Oh that one glimpse of a tear, falling on the heart of clay..

Brings back the pains you took to say what you wanted to say..

The little red dots, I so wish, could be blood of mine..

Because what was mine for all those years has surrendered to a force divine…

Lost is my innocence in the sands of time Lost is my ignorance in the depth of the blues Lost is my youth in the heights of the sky Lost is my identity in camouflage of the greens more..
