emotional triggers

It
takes little
to hurl mind
in already
navigated
life’s hits
misses

“Dhaakad” a
unique word
with that added
inflection launched
off your quick witted
tongue enhanced
nuanced big time
and
I’d see things
in altogether
new light
in
another
life
~

An old
finicky eater
now an incorrigible
foodie frequently
self indulgent
over cherished
“deja vu” taste
memories
with mouth watering
involuntarily
is now
a failed
dieter
~
mirrors
parade
departed
loved ones
paying frequent
visits when I flick
licks of hair
tossing head back
just so, neck craned
delicately up holding
proud hurt filled eyes
with tremulous smiles
piano(ing)
in startling
ways
~
last
but the least
snatches
of familiar
songs
crooned
by you, me
drowning out
each other
invariably increases
heartache
these days
and
I
surrerpitously
wipe face
gently mopping
dripping
sinuses
many times
nowadays
