on her traveling away for a vacation

i can tolerate our daily distance
who is like a familiar stranger
(me in one city
you with her neighbour)
but today it is
a feeling unfamiliar
as if i’m at sea, in landlocked Delhi
while your are away, at the old kala pani
this distance is a bridge i cannot cross
this pain, too aching to be sweet
a thousand miles is too far a distance
for my heart to go and beat
