Waking up in the middle of the night
to find no one around
attacked by a sudden feeling,
feeling of hollowness all around.
To find that moon shining,
Shining all alone
and it’s called an epitome of love
then why you standing alone.
And you make me all the more sad
I feel your loneliness in me
and then there is no end to it
only a continuous process of waiting endlessly
Sometimes caress my own curls
rub my eyes to see an empty bed.
Changing sides all night
praying it's not my end
Looking at those lines on my palm
with wide moist tearful eyes
and pray I become a stone heart
Or meet the heart where my love resides.
