Slowly but surely darkness surrounds me,
To hide from me the sight I fear to see—
Of him being betrayed by the skillful lies;
His better-half leaves him standing with glistening eyes.
Heartbroken, he waits at the mercy of thunder,
What mistake had he made?—He begins to ponder
Till he realises the reason. He heaves a sigh
Because, she got bored with him; hence, she bid him goodbye.
Regrets he not for having loved her madly,
Even though she has scarred him badly,
And imprinted her name permanently on chest,
While robbing him of his eternal rest.
Engulfed by sorrow, my heart is shattered to feel
The grief of the helpless man. The thunder-peal
Wakes me up to face the stark reality
That the man I love would never experience ecstasy.
”You won’t have to bear this alone.”—
He turns round hearing my fading tone,
He fakes a smile ’cause he can’t bear to see
The drizzling rain hiding the agony in me.
As he looks into my burning eyes at the end of the day,
He wipes away my tears and softly says—
”For he who can’t bear the unbearable pain,
Has never enjoyed the dance in the rain.”
