‘A Thousand Pieces of Me’ by Dipima Buragohain

The rainbow sky,

And its crimson dye,

The hailstorm glove

Of the insane love,

The maddening rush

Of the hopeful crush,

Of all the catchings and snatchings,

Of dreaming and screaming,

What words and swords,

What lies and cries,

Of smiles and miles,

And the thousand highs

Of radiant flies,

The grinning days

Of mysterious bays,

Of scorching lights

And soulful nights,

What’s harshly true

Is none but you.
