Surreal Name by Daipayan Nair

Surreal Name 

you journey
through my name

through the rocky turns,
lost lanes, dark alleys, deep pits 

some no way outs 
of each letters

crossing rough ridges,
broken bridges between
generations,

all fatigued, now crossing 
through the desolation 
of my surname 

where strolling through 
the same ruins, you find 
much to your disappointment,
I may be no different

then you reach the end 
all worn out, devasted 

find me there, standing,
with open arms 
calling your name.
