I have created

Itisha Giri | July 17, 2015

I have created –

a country for you where your fractured self

lives by multiple names –

and no pen can pin you down to be the one that

belongs to someone else.


I have created –

a land for you that is yours

to dig deep for roots

that give life to the blood

running through the many layers of you.


I have created –

a town for you where you can walk

hand in hand, coupled

in your fits of desire.


I have created –

a womb where your tiny apparitions

float on their backs until you flip them over-

into your salty embrace and

you both come up for air.


I have created –

a home for you where the rent is paid

by the life you breathe into the walls that would

crumble if you didn’t call it your own.
