Between Stolen Glances

Between stolen glances

Thank you
for spelling out directly
beauty
and the silky thread of love
Between stolen glances
and cruel jokes
which you used to pour out
In poems all these while
that sparked
Inter-continental fireworks
while I am still dazed
with disbelieve

Fathoming
your pains and wounds wound
I can’t help feeling guilty
Remembering stories of heroism and heartbreaks

Between stolen glances

Grandfathers of Gallipoli
