A tale yet to finish

The heart had just started beating fast

The naive smile had just started

Gaining the secretive touch.

The chatter between the glances had

Started gaining speed.

The vows of endless commitment

Were yet to be exchanged.

The storm in the lives of the countless

Arrived in the form of the pandemic.

Locked inside houses

With no chances of rendezvous,

The feeling simmered ,boiled and overflowed.

The lava of desires couldn’t comeout and flow.

The tears and the sighs,

Fighting oneself with why not and whys.

The raging passion cooled down

Into icy cold down stares.

And when the normal life resumed,all was over

And the  routine life happened.

    Into icy cold down stares…
    So much of expectation, passion, all abruptly coming to an end … the harsh reality of so many …
