balcony

i never knew

that he did not know

that each night

for a few quiet moments

i would enjoy some peace

under the neem tree

under the moon.

 

i never knew

that he did not know

where to find me.

 

i never knew

that he did not know

that what he ached for me to become

would vanish soon enough.

 

i never knew

that he did not know

that for a thousand nights

i longed for him to know me.

 

i never knew

that he did not know

that neem tree was my sanctuary

my hope, my place to dream.

 

i never knew

that he did not know

that I dream, of many things

but, mostly of connection.
