Knowing heart

A monkey cap from the back
A cunning smile over a goatee
It was funny how she saw him everywhere
When she knew he’d never be there

Perhaps she didn’t know after all
Or she didn’t want to know
She heard a reference to rising from the ashes once
You never know” she said when was told the impossibility

Probably she knows he’s there
Helping in interviews, getting the cab
Cancelling of events, changing the seasons
Smiling, still making her heart skip a beat – while his own stopped months ago

    Very nicely played out, Prateek. It’s amazing how the heart can cling to something it’s lost -wanting to believe the impossible will happen, despite knowing deep down that it won’t. A good reference to ‘Phoenix from the Ashes’. A sad story of misplaced hope.

    While his own stopped months ago, changed the mood all of a sudden.
    Jolting 😦

      Thank you, Rangelz for taking the time out and reading it so deeply. Doesn’t it describe life, when moods and circumstances change in a moment ? 🙂
