The poem(s) are below...


There rusts a bullet
With your name
Within my heart;
For a long while.

Yes, it could be easily removed;
But alas, with my life alone.
And as you know,
I don't want to die;
For death is not the name of love.
And death is not the end of birth.

Therefore let it be there,
The lonely bullet.
Because it is my second heart.
Let it be there;
For we are twins,
Male and female,
Man for short.

    Wow! I've never seen this theme of love and heartbreak expounded on so vividly. The imagery illustrates the poem very well. And where you mentioned the merging of the bullet into the heart - now that's what I call clever writing, it's as if pain becomes a way of life. Nice write Vasu!
