Did she ask for too much?
Did she make unreasonable demands?
Why did you leave her waiting
Hanging there to be looked around…?
She felt so vulnerable and lonely
So naked in the crowd
The questioning and rude stares
The unfathomable gaze..
How would she have ever answered
All the people looking at her, unfazed?
She deserves a better chance
To be loved and treated right
A man in shining armour
Who would rise up for her pride…
In the calm and quiet of night
In the cheer of bright sunlight
In the lovely colours of morning bloom
My lonely hands miss a feel
The warmth of your skin
Your caressing hold…
In the blues of soaring skies
In the settling drops of a murky rain
In the dews of shining grass blades
My eyes miss the infectious smile
The tenderness of your pursed lips
Your poignant grace..
In the Silence of a dark night
Tucked inside a cosy bed
Lies down a restless mind
Penning down thoughts
Enervated of running lists
Wearied of ticking chores
Savouring the slipping times
Awaiting the eluded sleep
And dreams to be adorned
