This poem has been composed by Maya whose short stories Our First Meeting and The Gap you all loved. Shower your love on her poem as well. Hope to hear from you all very soon.
I am missing you.
It’s been long I have been longing to be touched by you, to be caressed by the fragrant breeze that you bring along as your bosom friend.
This Sun, you know chars me to the very bones; I am fed up dear!
I don’t know what does it think of itself; always throwing embers and smothering us in the four walls of the house!
You did send a letter or two announcing your advent soon through dusky skies and pleasant winds but then you didn’t come.
I kept waiting for long with my lids unfurled to feel you…
Once you touch the thirsty earth, the sceneries will be mesmerizing for sure; that’s when my heart would dance and frisk about with peacocks gone mad with pleasure;
That is when my odhni will match with the earth’s…yeah! the glossy green!
You have to come now..
I can’t wait any more…
