Half Written

A poem

“Because we are an incomplete pair of Romeo and Juliet left alive by the Montagues and the Capulets; killed by the distance of the sun and the moon.”
― Ranjani Ramachandran

I am dreaming of the roads
I had promised to return to

the mountains still calling my name
wild roses still waiting to bloom

our names on the silver stream
of the dandelion meadows
half written
half faded

our whispered poems
still echoing in the hidden valley
wandering without a home

moon asking for its dues

I am dreaming of the roads
I had promised to return to
