Hyderabad 12 February 2022: "My soul lives with the idea of a lifetime spent with you, and somehow, I breathe as if I’m breathing with you. You live in my thoughts, like a defiant border that doesn't want to depart. You left me with silence, no last words uttered—but the screams of your absence continuously bother me. Is it still living if it’s without you? Come back and tell me what to do."
