Restrain

Two Dancers by Henri Matisse
He extended his right hand
She showed her back

He sang a gentle song
She thought it was a time for silence

till silence became a whispered song

and

She extended her right hand
He showed his back

She sang the song of a morning bird
He pretended he could listen nothing

He showed his back
She turned back

Two backs facing each other
Two faces looking east and west
Two songs and a shared silence
Amber fossil for her
Lost time for him

- Neha
