My Free Heart


My Free Heart 
      
 - Geetha   Munnurcode   -

        Some one                                       
        Seems unseen
         From an unheard cosmos
        Beckons me……
        Come, join me  –
        Put thee into me –
        I pledge
        In turn
        Thousands of years                                                                
        To thee –
-      Oh! Sure, take away
All that of me;
My hands…..my legs….
My head and soul…….
And whatever
Ear-marked
 And adorned with my label -

But, no!
Not my heart that throbs……
I’d live
Though for a while;
And my heart be
With no bond stamped on it;
And no bandage wrapped on it.
