The day you called………

Rekha Shukla

Walking alone on the road lonely and lost in thoughts.

Suddenly you tapped at the back

For a moment world stood still

And mind stopped thinking.


First, I regretted being disturbed

From my realm of dreams

Later felt grateful

That at least you woke me up.

Being in dreams

seemed Just an escape from reality


When you walked a few steps

Dreams seemed coming true

But the day you jilted

That castle of hopes crashed

All those vows and promises

Broke like china glass

I wonder if you too felt the loss

Our friendship nourished by

Devotion and sacrifice

Why proved to brittle?


Why those few steps walked together

Left no foot prints?

Why did we walk on sand?

At times I felt life gives more

than one wants.

Now I feel it takes away

More than what is gives in a jiffy.


Bizarre are ways of destiny …

We create, amass, possess, protect

Wealth, relations, good times..

To loose..


I have a treasure of memories

Where is that feeling of fulfillment?

They just leave me hollow inside sense of loss so intense

That now I hate being called

Or just don’t respond

While walking alone on the road

At least the choice is mine

Or if at all we could start afresh life?

Only on solid grounds………

Not  to loose….
