At The Funeral - Poem by Arti Chopra

At the funeral

Lowered black lashes
On cheeks of alabaster
A single pearly tear,
Runs down
From the corner
Of your eye,
I have pined
And hoped
For another glimpse
Of that beautiful face,
But the vast crowd
Has swallowed
You up
Like an ugly monster
Leaving me bereft
And wondering
Were you
A heavenly vision
Or just my dream?

    Short but very deep piece...
    Nice one mam...
