His Persona


Quietly he walked through the doors, unnoticed and unflattered.
Becoming something that he was not.
Covered in masks and hoping,
someone to uncover them as he ran his fingers through his quotidian life.
He knew, people come and people go.
He learnt a friend and he learnt a foe.
Still he kept his ears shut to the people who knew
what was under the masks.
And kept yearning for someone he thought
knew what was hidden beneath his masks.
– Manvendra Vidyarthi
(Stories beneath the eyes)
