On a rainy day,
With the chill seeping into my bone,
I sit by the large window at my home.
Looking out at the drenched city below,
I’ve never felt more alone.
My mind wanders into those lanes,
I thought I had barricaded long back.
I find myself thinking about you.
A bundle of memories I thought I had discarded,
tumble out as they unpack.
I remember the night we had first kissed,
Under the awning of the tree that shielded us
From prying eyes and the gentle drizzle.
Passions running high, how I had wished that
I could melt into your caress.
I remember it all,
The first kiss, the first touch, the first confession of love
The damp monsoons were spent cocooned in your arms
Entwined in each other, I felt warm even as the
rains lashed from the skies above.
On this rainy day,
As I sit by the window with nothing but a blanket to keep me warm,
I watch the sodden world rush below me
And I wonder if you remember the moments we spent together
in a long forgotten storm.
