A dry day, in May!

26 Jul

Lights are flashing, mind’s disturbing…
Not my fault, her love’s lost…
Tides repeating, times are changing…
Not her fault, it pained me a lot…

Met her down the street…
Sometime late, of last September…
We had fun, mood being upbeat…
And a walk to remember…

Hand in hand, singing a song…
Caring for none, loud and drunk…
Going no where, just heading along…
Beneath the vast sky, lay our bunk…

Talking of birds, and to stars…
Lost in time, and into each other…
Window-shopping, strolls to bazaars…
Bonds got stronger, we didn’t bother…

And then…

One fine morning, it all went wrong…
Sometime mid, of this May…
There was no music, thus ended the song…
There was no her, no liquor, just a dry day…

PS: This is a rejected piece of work for an internal corporate blog-a-zine…rejected cos the theme was “Be happy” and this one though started happy, went sour πŸ˜‰

    Looks like a case of ‘All good things must come to an End’. 😦

    But…there is always a bright spot. πŸ™‚

    let me get myself right!
    is the her in the last line and throughout, ur bottle of whiskey or u talked about both of them?
    what i understood from this is that u enjoyed one fine day last sept with hard liquor and one bad day in mid-may u went sad coz it was a dry day..
    if this is so then 5 star post boss πŸ™‚
    the girls looks HOT πŸ™‚
