Unfulfilled Desire - Poem by Dr.Rajendra Tela,Nirantar

He had greyed
Wrinkles on the face
Spectacles on the eyes
He saw her with probing
Sitting on a bench in the
Reading a book near
The hotel
He was staying
He had come to the city
Four decades
After he completed
His studies
If not mistaken
It was she
Who filled his life?
With unfulfilled desire
She had also aged
Glow on the face
Had turned in to gloom
Slowly walked and
Stood in front of her
Seeing the light obstructed
She lifted her face
Her eyes remained
Wide open
She could not believe
It was he
She cleaned her eyes
To confirm
What she thought
Was right
Could not utter a
Single word
Tears started flowing
The man asked
How are you?
How is your family?
She replied
I did not marry
Slowly asked
In an anxious tone
Did you?
I also did not
Was the answer
Tell me
Why you did not?
The woman blushed
Said in a muffled tone
You did not
