Dreams, spoilt Expectations, marred Aspirations, killed. Then she came, as if to complement me- Traversing my soul and heart, Invading my every thought, Leaving an indelible stain of the how it all happened. Resentful, as I become, Languished in dreamlessness, Alienated from the quest of life, As they live rent-free in my mind. So heavy a price I pay! Encumbered, as I bear with my grudge Waiting for trespassers seeking my forgiveness I only find more paths crossing My pains fading into oblivion. Left with nothing but gratitude Slowly, the pangs of the grudge Fade away I thank the Universe for bestowing on me The honor of forgiving, I touch the void As everything falls in its place.
