The Circle - Part 1 - Poem by Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean

(i)

The night stretches long....
She strains her ear to hear the sound
Of the click of the opening lock
She hears everything else but....
The howling wind cries ceaselessly
The neighbours have gone mad
Insanely moving furniture at this hour
The darned clock doesnt fail to remind
Just goes tick tock, tick tock
The dog has joined the chorus
He also started the wailing raga
Isn't it strange?
When the city should be sleeping
There is suddenly a din
And my mind doing a jugalbandi
Crazy thoughts race and jostle
Moving in a crescendo
Stop!
I am suddenly overcome by nausea
I rush to the loo
Yank the toilet seat
And start wretching.
The river gushes and rushes
Out into the unsuspecting water
Tears stream down my cheeks
The clock strikes....
One...Two...Three...Four

Wh ere the hell is he? ? ?

........to be continued
