Winter – Aakriti Adhikari, Runner up , Poush 2074


I look through the window

White is everywhere

If I look inside me

Black is everywhere

But life is much more than black and white

Everything I feel, its gray

Can you count all shades of gray?

I bet you don’t understand

Love is colorful but sometimes suffocating

And when it squeezed my neck

I left everything behind

I moved little far

Far away from love

With a bag full of memories

Memories, how we sat together under stars and dreamt about future

Everything we talked, we understood

Love makes us stupid, but sweetest way

I remember your eyes, they were saying, that

I would never die from hunger of love,

If people would be rich by all love they receive, your hands on mine, I am the richest

Winters were never cold with you by my side


I moved little far

My bag was heavier

Heavier with your tears mixed up with mine

We got lost somewhere

Time caught us

And we fail to catch each other

On top of skyscrapers, I see all those stars beneath me

I see all our dreams frozen like Chicago city

And your heart windiest and cruelest than Chicago city

I am like that tree, so beautiful on fall,

You wanted to click pictures

And when winter arrived,

It is there but you never wanted to glance

But still,

You tried to make it look beautiful on Christmas with lights


How long can you try? To change something that time has cast spell upon,

How long can you try?

No one can stand there against winter

Because it would wreck you, freeze you and can destroy you

I hope you saved yourself

Sorry, my lover,

For I can’t change the time


In this winter, we are trapped for an eternity.

heartbreak and pain
