MEETING

Meeting of two hearts,
may not be,
meeting of two souls.
Meeting of two bodies,
may not be,
meeting of two hearts.
Meeting of two minds,
may not be,
meeting of two bodies.
Meeting of two hands,
may not be,
meeting of two minds.

Alas!
I pray –
Not infront of an Altar,
Or a Picture.
Let it be so!
If not
Then
The Meeting would be,
a meeting
- of two rivals,
- of two parallel lines,
which would
give effect to
pretensions,
and which would give birth
to two living dead bodies.
(Birth of dead-bodies)
Not exactly living,
But moving dead bodies,
without a slightest feel of
Sense of Direction.
