ESCAPE. A Poem by Priya Dolma Tamang

If vanishing
into thin air
a possibility,
would the sky
my substance;
and limbus
engulf my soul
and the Siberian birds
take me home,
setting sail
on wayward winds
to unknown heavens?
Would you notice
I am gone
and smile back
at me,
when I twinkle
at you
in star-studded nights
and make a wish
upon me
to see me
one last time?
An escape
into nothingness.
