Momentary

And then there were those unexpected moments of madness
When he suddenly pulled over by the dirt road
And emptied his tormented heart
Hiding his face in my lap
His tears soiling my shirt
While I sat stilled by his noisy sobs


He said he was sure we were bonded birth after birth
By an umbilical chord of love and longing
But I lack faith


Yet spend sleepless nights fearful that someday
I shall lose him to the crowd
Someday he shall walk out of my life
The way he had once walked in
Someday I shall stifle a sob by the dirt road
Which carries traces of his noisy sobs
In utter silence of reproach
