The Rendezvous

I got this brittle feeling that you would come!
You would not disappoint me - after all!
This virile temptation to cuddle the frugal time was such a monotony - my love!
And I was beseeching your coveted arrival.

Eons of time I spent foolishly for the carnival to begin -
The riveting time capsule has everything engraved on its diary - my soulless sojourn!
The collapsing photo frame, the battered memoir, the smeared smile depicts neither joy nor sorrow!
I try to relive time - our collective lives, and our passionate love affair!

And then this vengeance come by and cling onto our faces -
It coddles and cossets our bereft union.
The broken mirror no more tells any fairy tale -
We hide behind our ugly veils -
Ah, the staggered zombies we become!
The impressive pedigree we once swanked are here no more -
But our curly pathos, our corkscrewed vintage dreams chime a strange song!

The nest is where a weary bird finds solace - the perilous flipping of its tired wings in the day's rigor -
The resting banyan tree at the distant far away land drifts farther aloof!

Yet I know you would come along my love, one day!
Only to see me vulnerable and broken like a shattered glass.
Oh! How much you wish to see me pleading guilty and down at my knees with jagged remorse!
