A TRYST WITH SUCCESS
"This poem is what success has to say to all those who don't get it even after trying hard."
"With darkest of days, With nastiest of pain,
I filled your life
just to gauge your love for me.
But, your desire to touch me, feel me and taste me
I was far away, not easy to reach
but, you still searched for me
and your aplomb was never reduced to zilch.
I saw tears dripping from your eyes.
Eyes, that also stared hard at fear.
I felt your broken heart.
Heart, that had fissures only for valour to seep in.
I heard your whimpers when you fell,
only to rise again.
You had unflinching love for me and so,
At last, I had to come.
I came in your life to change it; for good,
to make it more daring, more riveting.
But, you exulted in your victory.
You lost warmth towards world and found
arrogance in you.
You missed that I came but, I could
also leave you.
Still, I gave you chance to hold me tight.
To not let me leave.
But, you became too complacent to
listen to me. So, I apologise,
At last, I had to leave."
