Since when have the windows

become the cages of dreams?

Iron rods piecing apart the roads out of reach.


Since when have the curtains turned from shield to sheath?

Zipping away sunlight, darkness beneath.


Since when have the doors stopped opening at all?

My demons and dreams have started sharing the hall.


Since when have the skylights

begun clogging the wind

Filling up all crevices with uncaught feels.


Since when have the walls

started dropping the roof?

Unnoticed it falls, crushing all thoughts aloof.


Since when has my prose

become poetry galore?

Veiling my truth in costumes

of metaphors.
