Do Not Tell.


Sew this promise to your skin-
You shall not tell.
Even when,
Everything force onto you-
“Will you not tell?”
But you shall not. To none.
The reason you know
is buried deep where the answers emanate.
They might say you hide.
Let them be for they know
of none of the meanings and
feelings true.
And of the promises sewn to your skin.
The hope you cling to
is not to lose the ones you carry a tell for.
Because when you are true
and they too are true.
There remains none such powers wanting
you to have slippery grips.
They shall be attached on their own to your hands.
-Manvendra Vidyarthi.
(The Stories beneath the eyes.)
