Lone Lover

By Disha Nag

As the foyer gets drunk with sun;

But the gloomy ambiance prevails,

In the heart of the lone lover…

The shadow jumps from one corner to the other,

As frail as a swooning maiden,

She danced as she had never before…

He promised love to the virtuous soul,

Left her with an unfulfilled promise.

The lust was unseen…

Dejected melody, the violin plays;

The dew trickles down the petals of black dahlias,

Even the betrayal cannot stop her heart from loving him…
