Is and not

By: Satish Verma

IS AND NOT

If it is,
it was not.
Things people do
things people stall.

Others were they
it was I .
Why did I go back
to read the book of life
from end to beginning
from dark to light,

At least there was coming
and no retreat,
and you ended in celebration.

Enough was folded between the lines,
enough was spoken between the words
I was bewildered though
still I wanted to begin again!
