A Ride with Time; Au Revoir

By Ratika Bhardwaj

A Ride with Time

Time, An inexorable chariot; Every receding second, A trailing memory; You blink, breathe, Strike a pose, Look right, then left; Count to one, Frown, Smile, Ahh! Where's the present? Onerous, A ride with time, Isn't it?

Au Revoir I remember My aching heart, The pinch of numbness, The hush of silent tears, The roar of unsaid thoughts, Waves of suppressed emotions, Myriads of unfulfilled moments, Ah! The fear of next morning, The part of me losing, Fragmented like the sunset hues, Disappearing, Causing endless yearnings, Alas! Our last rendezvous; 'twas you leaving abroad.
