The Time Traveler’s Love Letter

By Vijayalakshmi Harish

 
 
 
 The Time Traveler’s Love Letter

  
 the rain plays games with me.
 it whispers to the eager earth
 about my broken heart.
 the fragrance that rises, reminds me
 that on this map, we are worlds separated
 by many boundaries, and a void.
 bridges break, flight is forbidden, directions dissolve.
 the wind returns to me every breath I take
 in your name. 
 the understanding that i am the one
 who sailed too soon, got lost, stranded
 in this parallel world
 is its own special ache. 
 i feast on my apologies;
 pretend that my letters
 still find you.
 your colours are all i see
 in the disappearing autumn
 and the unfurling winter.
 i wonder if your seasons 
 are the same.
 how do i heal?
 how do i find my way back?
