Kanica Soni‘s poem: The missing steps

youthful affection

body and soul surrendered

Traded for a Companion.

Institution overshadows

Shackles weigh down

arms of warm embrace… left fallow.

Poof go the butterflies

Ooof feel the companions

Faustian Dreams Divide

Yearning for each other

In quiet solitude

The heart cries in quiet monologue


Come back while I’m young

Come back to share spontaneous exuberance.

Because what is life?

sans infatuation, sans companion, sans passion.

Kanica is trained in psychology and currently teaches English to high school students. She uses her opportunities of creative expression through both leisurely musings and professional needs.
