A Long Time Ago... - Poem by nupur singhal

when i switched off the PC today,
and moved to the destined vehicle...
to return me back,
to the game i usually play...

the mood a little low at that hour,
something's been bothering me..
i knew somewhere,
a pain, hidden to blow today..

everyday with fellow comapnions,
i would join in the merry hour,
i sat next to the window seat alone,
loneliness, as i was seeking today..

the drizzling coming through..
wetting my eyelids..
felt cozy, though numb..
shattered dreams now plump..

and as the vehicle hustled-tussled ahead,
a distant face erupts in the head..
(been years) it was a long time ago when,
you were a rose and i was your love struck man,

life brings forth this amazing craziness,
love once's, how now a stranger?
things they just dont seem to settle,
a new life, a new story intermingled with the ol' ones'.

i hear voices at the backseat,
fellows notice my melancholy mood,
i nod, though ironically disapprove,
their game, hit-the-target..

how would i explain?
How colud i explain?
love's a suffering...
though was astonishing..
(a long, long time ago...)
