Knock!

Knock!

There's a knock on the door,

At this wee hour, I am startled,

A little trepidation in heart, yet I venture,

Out of my cosy quilts and bed,

Leaving rabbits and grasshoppers fighting,

In my blissful dream of the night,

Curious like a child, I go and open,

And, in comes a lady, vivacious and jovial.


"Give me a glass of water,"

She huffs and puffs, as she,

Throws herself on the couch,

I follow her orders sheepishly,

And, as she gets refreshed,

She smiles and says,

"I have not much time left,

I escaped from my house,

In order to live the last days,

In my own terms."


Did I hear the string of a chord within?

Never mind, I observe her glow and hear her story,

Am I getting jealous of her radiating confidence?

"No way, I am not that bad," I reassure myself,

How could she read my mind?

As she paused and looked deeply in my eyes,

I am perturbed, a bit embarassed.


She doesn't mind, but talks to me,

In a warm and gentle tone,

I have been yearning to listen to,

For ages.


"Act fast, seize your dreams,

And fly, fly away, silently,

Like the mighty eagle,

Come and meet me,

In a land of promise,

And, I will hug you,

And steal all your worries."

Then, she leaves in the dark,

Leaving me in deep introspection.
