Little Miss Sunshine!!

A pinch of salt, a spoonful of sugar,a mixture of condiments,a dollop of cream... so are my stories, so are my dreams!

Forlorn hope!

Tears were at the border of her eyelids
She couldn’t speak, lest she be heard
She couldn’t wail, lest people get to know
She couldn’t scream, lest the whole village should wake up


One drop after another, it poured out ever so silently
She did not understand her own pain
Was it her heart breaking? Or was it the faith she had in people?
Or was it just the trust she had in one person?


The trees were still swaying to the ballad of the night wind
The stars were shining ever so brightly
The riverbank echoed peace in every roar
Completely ignorant of the turmoil her mind was in


They had drenched in the rains and made small boats together
They had learned to spell alphabets and made mistakes together
They had written their names on the rocks together
They had eaten stolen mangoes together


He had gone, left without saying anything
Looking forward to a better world, a better future
Leaving her absolutely alone
Leaving her to cry into the wind


Was he keeping well?
She wished for his happiness, she prayed for his safety
She hoped he was having food at the proper hours…
Not a missive, Not a word, and yet it did not matter to her


Lips still pursed, with a lump in her throat
Never having known what it was to be an island
There she was standing at the footpath of the Railway station
Wishing, waiting, wanting…..



P.S: dedicated to a line in one of my favorite songs which i believe totally mirrors the idea behind this post "kyun khoya khoya chand ki firak mein talaash mein udhaas hai dil"-from Khoya Khoya Chand

    @cm-chap

    Hai Anu,

    Yet another wonderful Blog, which stirred heaviness in us also."They had learned to spell alphabets and made mistakes together" was a beautiful expression of feelings.

    The poetry was fantastic. Wishing to read more of your works!

    Cool one...isn't it...rather awesome......it sounds to me like "Diverged Road Part 2"....may be the same thing is running thru 'her' mind....after 'he' has left..!

    "They had learned to spell alphabets and made mistakes together"..

    this is one of my fav lines too :-)

    @milind
    hmmmm someone has commented on my post!!! thats a wonder... guess its gonna snow in Huntsville today

    Its definitely NOT "dverged roads" part 2... the characters are completely different

    In diverged roads, she din want to let him go and yet she din want to stop him. he din wanna go and he wished for her to stop him

    In this, he just left.... not a word, nothin...
