Plea of a woman!


Looking up the sky so high
Impossible to measure its height
She took a deep sigh
When she saw nothing in sight

The cotton clouds were flying
Not possible for her to catch
From inside she was slowly dying
Her soul held her by a latch

She had learnt the perseverance
She will have to go on
Showing a deep rooted reverence
Whether to her it was known or unknown

The time is the best healer
She has failed to recognise
You can't act like a dealer
The truth which she now surmise

Pointing at the dark grey cloud overhead
She lets out a roaring scream
A plea to the universal shepherd
Cursing him for failure of her dreams

She skipped the sleep many nights
Her eyes shut tight in darkness
Her mind traversing painful sights
Wondering why all she met were heartless?

The darkness slowly faded away
The answer was given to her in a blink
Holding the pieces together she heard him say
Look deep within my child, and thou shall not sink!

'Welcome to Melbourne' a voice echoed as the plane landed at the Melbourne airport. There was a hustle and bustle as the passengers started removing their luggage from the cabin compartment. Pankhuri was delighted. She performed all the formalities of arrival, claimed her luggage, hired a taxi and left for the hotel. She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her. She reached the hotel at around 10 in the morning. A blonde man with blue eyes, wearing a Grey suit who sat at the reception welcomed her. 'Welcome to the Melbourne Marriot, Ma'am. Here is your room card.' He said giving a swipe card to her. 'Thank you, Could you please arrange someone to fetch my luggage to the room?' she asked importantly. 'Sure!' he said.

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
