Haunting Bonds (Inspired by ‘Kankaal’ by Jai Shankar Prasad)

The bonds
Of lovers
Of Siblings
Of Motherhood
Of Studentship
Of Friendship

Were initiated
With apprehension
Nurtured with care
Cared for with life
Then ignored due to boredom
And Ultimately
Forgotten with desperation!

And they all
Comeback from grave
With a vengeance
To haunt
So much so that
The life
Lived and visualised
Seem a waste
A Skeleton

If not for the selfless service
Of the humanity
Of those
Who need love
More than the bonds
You had grown fond of
And then grown tired of!
