Our Transition

Today I met you under somber sun..
We talked away all our time.
It was good to be with you,
To see the unknown side of yours.
I just enjoyed your passing gaze
What was there in meanders,
Of your brilliant mind, if I could see!
I like this transition phase,
Of our life where we are exploring,
The future of what we are as friends.
Looking for some more possibilities to it,
To see it evolving in to some new phase,
But with an understanding, no ties.
No expectations ,just understanding.
Some good time ,some good memories,
To make them good, while they last.
Amicable ,pleasant ,happy times,
I look forward to ,when with you.
Why should I bother ,
What people may think!
Were they there ,when I was slipping
Into pools of loneliness and boredom?
So they do not have right to question,
my where with whom and whys’.
I want to live, live to the utmost.
I want to swim in the dangerous currents.
For now ,I want to see the fading sun,
For now I am, what matters to me
If I live then I live ,I am second to none.

    Quite an impassioned existential cri-de-coeur that resonates with an understated gravitas.
    It recalled tangentially for me the scene in “Blade Runner” where Rutger Hauer delivers the “Tears in the Rain” monologue.
    The point is there is no coda stuck on the end of it.
    I think by losing the current last line and ending on “For now I am what matters to me” has ×10 the finishing impact.
