I am 30 years, eligible maiden, yet to fall in love.
Every time I am surprised when I watch people falling in and out of love. Why didn’t I ever give a chance for this magic four? Am I heartless enough not to fall in love?
The clock struck 6 and I gave myself a gentle reminder to come back to present.
I quickened my pace as the clouds began to gather in the sky.
I inch purposely as I see Karthik, my colleague. Past few months my heart skips a beat the moment I see him.
We felt the first splatter of rain. Karthik was all smiles and said “Come, join me. Seems you have forgotten again.”
I inched closer and as the heavens poured I stealthily look into my bag and smile at the lonely umbrella.
my hand trembling with desire
I reach out to touch you
wishing I don’t find you
