.love in the times of Delhi winters

by Tanya, find her here.

Anindya Chattopadhyay/ BCCL Delhi

1. On this gloomy day with lack of air and breathlessness,

You decide to be my safety mask.

2. I can’t see the buildings behind our house,

The smog is such.

But I can see through your heart pure and clear.

3. We used to cross our paths everyday,

But nowadays I cant find you…

Your number is odd

And mine is even…

4. Roses are dead,

Grey is the new sky blue,

Oh my dear,

I love you.

5. You used to take my breath away,

Now it’s the air I breathe.

6. It’s not you,

It’s not me,

It’s the smog.
