He gazed, she smiled.
She was swayed by his style.
The dangling beads of her earrings,
Kept him constantly staring!
While friendship developed between the two,
He continued on his mission to woo.
Expressions were redefined through words
And they were granted the title of love birds!
Their unison was such that the world gave a glance
There began the story of their true romance!
She felt his bona fide touch,
Alas! She was caught and was clutched.
In her days of confinement life took a toll
Among those sealed doors too, she would hear him call
Those gleaming eyes of tears expressed her plight,
Months passed by in her notion of being right!
They parted to study in two different states,
Brimming with passion, she still thought to wait.
Irrespective of her feelings, he started a new life,
In lieu of that gaze again, harder she strived.
And then she found his touches in those others,
She confronted, he ignored; he was least bothered.
But, this time those touches gave her a thrust.
Clouds broke apart while she shed her broken trust.
Days passed by in her stage of frustration.
Life threw her into the state of depression.
Slowly she learnt to overcome with power.
She dealt with situations both sweet and sour.
In a whole new city she began her life alone,
Determined to never look back upon those stones thrown
She stepped out to smell the fragrance of fresh air,
With the over powering wind, she again saw him stare
She stood up to hear when the nightingales sang
But found him in front whenever the doorbell rang!
While she’d go out to relish those long drives,
She would find him standing on her way as a guide
When she expressed his presence, nobody believed.
They demeaned her by saying ‘twas just a story weaved.
In every place she’d go, in everything she’d do,
She would watch him again on his mission to woo.
And one fine day, she called up his friends.
Far away he was from her reach, stated his trends
She was told by them, she had nothing to regret.
Yes, those *bona-fake* touches were part of his bet.
She smiled with tears and was taken to the doctor.
A ‘Hallucination’ patient, Dr. proclaimed and she burst out of laughter! :’)
