sixteen months ago
i stepped into the room
and the very next moment
i had its geography learnt –
how the six walls were
going to behave
when it would be
just me and them.

i figured it out all early
and lived it. same.
until sixty days ago
you silently came
with a hammer. and
broke open a door.

now i breathe in light
and nothing feels
a prison anymore.
now my heart beats
are free.
