The mind wanders, delving into the deep;
The deep of uncertainty.
Uncertain of how my present will unfold,
What other surprises will it spring back at me.
As I sit on this desk,pondering upon what’s in store,
My mind wanders.
Since morning, I have been juggling my mind
with the limited options of engagement.
But that did not help keep me from drifting into his thoughts once in a while.
Now as I write, he overpowers me.
My mind succumbs to the agony of his aloofness.
I look out through the window, trying to keep “him” away,
The lazy streets, sleepy afternoon skies greet my tired eyes.
I look out at them with a strange numbness,
And all I am reminded of is him.
How his absence brings everything to a halt!
Life seems to be crawling slowly, deprived of the zeal to survive.
I join in the momentary merriment in my surroundings and laugh a while;
But my mind isn’t joyous.
Its filled with the gloom of his separation.
Why does my eyes crave to see him?
Why does it feel that a glimpse of his smile,
Can infuse back life into my distressed soul?
Perhaps some questions are best left unanswered.
