Ahaan !! When I woke up with that great smile

I imagined what my day will look like

All set to take the stride

And a call comes and I sit back with my phone with a pride

I thought the call will be humorous

But on the other side, it sounded a bit dangerous

I knew I can change what I am thinking right now

Wished the other person could here me somehow

I paused to hear how she is feeling

Her heavy breaths were really not appealing

As she tried to sound a bit more wise

I touched her upon the emptiness

She was experiencing inside

Wait !! I just wanted to stop her from falling

I didn’t move an inch for I knew she is tougher

From the battle she had been fighting

And then she broke, she broke

Like thunder befalling, like hearts breaking

All the worlds conspired to make her free

And she too wanted it to be

Her hopes had been shattered

Her dreams were scattered

Her ordeal to end all the turmoils is only what mattered

I waited till her sobbing made peace with her spirit

I whispered “Go now and conquer”

She exclaimed meekly yet willingly, “I will”

She wore the jacket and put on the red lipstick

Her swollen eyes lit up with a kohl

I waited till the call ended

And wondered how life smashed her on the face

When the death  had almost left her killed!!
