A poem by DISHA TAKLE.


you and I 

speak different words

neither can understand

but you and I 

are bound together

we walk 

hand in hand 



I lose your words 

I slither away 

you hear me out 

with nothing to say  

our emotions are lost

in translation 



but I do not give up

and neither do you    

I shed my skin 

just to talk 

to you 



you write me letters

by my side 

we’re tongue tied till

our worlds collide 



until your words 

become mine and

mine become yours,

our words and worlds

stay at war

so you and I we

always try so one day we

might see 

eye to eye
