On the lonely benches
Sat a soul unknown.
She looked around in consideration
Yet the known seemed unknown.
Friends in groups reserved down to laugh and play
Smiles all around
Yet a smile to her she craved.
Things weren’t alike a while ago
She is, what she didn’t wish to be
She is, what she never thought she’d be
Not in the wildest of dreams.
As once upon a time,
Classes passed by like the blink of an eye.
From laughter songs and cries of joy
To gossips buzzing away, upon dating the lame boy.
A couple of fights and a dozen smiles..
Made life, what it is
And is simply meant to be.
Wacky in sight, yet beautiful and bright.
As once upon a time
When she felt jacked
And nothing in life seemed to crack..
Friends knew it all, even before she spoke it all.
High-5s, basketball and music brought a glow
Then a warm hug, meant ‘forget it ya, just let things go.’
Sadly, lost is the girl sketched in farewell diaries..
The Charm, The fun..
The Happy-go-lucky persona
And the never dying spirit.
Looking for company at lunch,
She closes the box in hush.
Super sexy coffee left alone and tasteless
Perhaps now the sole therapy for the act of carelessness.
Her’ s or other’s , she is left to daze.
Struggled to befriend some,
But life was just in the wrong phase.
Life is weird,
I hate it when I say so.
For I see a beautiful soul
Depart each moment into the dead hole.
No one awaits her arrival,
Not a gang to depart with.
She cried for that picture perfect college life,
But then I sympathise,
‘ Darling ,trust me, that’s not all in life.’
Surprisingly in the rush,
A soul she discovered.
A friend, A philosopher, A guide in veil
Disguised in lifeless, silent books and paper,
Redressing her grief.
Hearing her, as she scribbled away classes in and out
No complaints, no demands
But, Just a company in silence,
When words couldn’t be spoken aloud.
That’s it and that’s all
Left all to destiny
In the game of Life.
