POETRY | Yellow String by Nesam Pillay

Image credit lingabhairavi.org   She whipped him playfully with a thin rattan stick and he said ‘I feel no pain’ bravely she asked him if he could not be hurt and began to whip herself ‘stop it….. you’re hurting me’ he said he stood at the edge of their meeting place when she got there, she circled him, round and round like ten times ‘have you gone mad? ‘ he asked ‘no I have not’ ‘I am like the world circling my sun’ she says ‘what would I be without my sun?’ ‘I’d be so cold, my life would be...
