She sang in the most annoying voice possible,
just to make him realize ,
that there were things,
that were more worse than his problems.

She wasn’t waiting for him,
But he found her.
They chirped together
They flew from one tree to the other
He gave her shelter under his wings
During rainy nights
She gave him, her share of grains,
When food was not enough for both.
Finally they decided to build a nest
Where they can stay together.
She worked day & night,
But before she could complete it,
He was gone forever.
He wasn’t there for her anymore.
She wept during the rains,
And shivered all the cold nights,
As she waited beside their nest.
She knew it but she was still fighting with her heart.
He would never come back.
What was she waiting for?
It was spring again,
And there came somebody new to show her love again
He promised, he would never leave her and go,
He took her wherever he went
And decided to build a nest together.
She fell for it again,
She caught him staring at the ones
Who were flying to the other land.
He was dreaming to go along with them
It was the same story,
Told to the same person.

His fingertips tucked a strand of hair
behind her left ear,
and planted a warm kiss
on her cheek.
He held her hand,
saying that everything will be alright.
it’s just the matter of time
which will pass by very soon.
A gush of memories
flashed in front of her eyes,
as she hid the picture back
in between her old stuff.
Things would never be the same again.
Things were changed forever.
The mighty waves in her heart,
will disturb her for the rest of her life
no matter how hard she tries
to live in peace.
She was dreaming about her present,
and living in her past.

Her phone rang once in the evening after he came back from office, to ask whether she took her medicines.
Her phone rang once again at night, to ask whether she had dinner.
Had he known she needed him the most, more than the medicines,
Had he known she needed some time from his busy schedule,
she would have recovered.
Today,she was still fighting, with her mind and her heart.
Today,she still believes that there is a ray of hope, because there is always a sunshine after a dark.

Her laptop, a gift from Dad.
Her Smartphone, to type anything, anytime.
But Shine would always sit near the window,
Her favorite place,
With her pen and her diary.
She still loved longhand writing,
Admired the pen dancing on paper,
To make it look even more beautiful.
Her world was in her diary.

Don’t know what you are suffering from,
Leaving who is near you,
You always long for who is far.
No matter how much they try to come close to you,
They land up being at a distance.
You are a riddle, unknown to anyone.
For how long have your eyes not slept?
For how long has your heart not been at peace?
I know, yesterday, you met her again,
You saw her again, the old you.
The one, who was made to look beautiful by the unexplained time.
You have never wavered in your fidelity,
Today repeatedly makes innuendos to forget her.
But you, with a predilection for thinking
And dreaming about her,
Would not understand,
That your escape is never imminent.
