A Question

Dr. Simmi Gurwara

Professor & Head, Dept. of Professional Development, IMS Engineering College, Ghaziabad


Why do you ask me the same question-
Yesterday today tomorrow-
You fill my nostrils with the dust of
I squeal I whimper I cry
Without giving any whiff of seclusion
I so secretly desire.
You pester me unendingly
Twisting and twitching
My nerves. Broken, I slither
making all efforts
Weak and smart
to muster breathless courage
to escape your wrath.
You already know my answer
Unadulterated, unvarnished
Nursed all these years
To make it strong and stand on its own
To face your question
Which you ask unrelentingly
Yesterday today tomorrow.
