He and She

Posted in Poetry by justescaped on April 17, 2007

Unabashedly inspired from Vikram Seth’s “Round and Round ;

He

Stood forlorn in the shimmering dusk

As her shadow faded away

And the words he thought say she must

They never came his way

Ahead his dreams lay scattered

For just when it mattered

He couldn’t say it himself;

She

Wept as she walked in the melting snow

He didn’t ask her to stay

The state of her heart, she had told him though

Albeit from some yards away

For the words she had uttered

They’d tossed and they fluttered

And in the wind, were they swept away ;
