THE MORNING AFTER



It is a brand new day
O heavens!
How I have yearned to be free.
Free of the ominous clouds
That overshadowed my life.
You had  breezed into my life
Like the first flush of spring.
I almost did not catch my breath
Dumbstruck as I was
By your sweet encounter .
I was a seeker
 And I gaily offered you my heart
On a golden platter
All yours to cherish.
But alas!
You became whimsical.
You resorted to games
 My heart had unheard of.
Why, o why did you play the devil?
I floundered
 I shed tears
And finally it was time to bid adieu
Not because I was a runner
But because you could not match or appreciate
My frequency of love for you.
