'Almirah' by Kavitha Krishnamurthy
Few people have a wooden almirah
some have a plastic almirah and
some have a steel almirah.
I have a relationship almirah.
It's not so glowing and glossy;
not filled with precious stones and jewels,
but with tons of memorable smiles.
It's scented with the happiest moments of my life,
the fragrance of those moments rejuvenates.
I unlock my relationship almirah
to unveil its product highlights,
it has a durable build where
relationships endure and stand the test of time.
It has an elegant design of staggered platforms
where thought patterns are elevated to love, support,
forget and forgive the mistakes of people in my life.
It has organised shelves
comprising friends and family,
each of them having and enjoying
their own space in my life;
the joys and pleasures
are stored inside a durable safety locker.
This almirah is tension and stress-resistant
and comes with a lifetime warranty.
My almirah has no price tag attached to it
for it is made of emotions,
carved and crafted with love and affection,
devoid of ego and jealousy,
decorated and painted with the
sweetest moments of life.
