Aditi again - new poem sent to me after a long time

Silent whispers
Sniffle in nostalgia
Humming a familiar tune

The mind plays
With the heart,
Like the sadist wind
That ruffles up
Crisp raked memories

Every thought has an appendix
Of old habit and decayed love
Which it carries along
Like a vestigial blister
That refuses to be balm

Meandering emotions
Seek absorption
To still the change
But they still churn
Like the frothing sea
Venomous nectar.

And endless war fought,
Sought not by me

Deliverance I beg for
From the battles of
I with Me
