a b h a   w r i t e s :

Being a woman; therefore of many parts. Often than not, torn apart. Now focusing on my higher calling. Daren’t look down for fear of falling. On my ass would be comfortable because of all the flesh, on my nose would hurt and make a mess. People reach for the stars; I grope for the rest of the sky’s darkness. Always loved the blue of blackness. Love to rant because it makes me pant. Otherwise I have been a cool cat all my life, secretly besotted by internal strife. It shows naught on my face, but in other myriad ways. Read my poems. You might get a clue. A woman I am, of a mixed- media hue. I write on love, life, losing and longing, for that elusive sense of belonging.

Abha Iyengar lives in New Delhi, India with her husband and family. Her writings have appeared in several anthologies, literary journals and e-zines.
