A Desert.

Endless mountains wrapped in lush greenery
Under the dome of countless stars
A million dreams drifted in the river
Through the charades of euphoria

Amidst the chaos of life
Flowed a stream
Brimming with hope and dreams
As dry as a desert.

Stories they told once, about
The pain of yesteryear
The fear of tomorrow
With each suppressed emotion

Graced the cheek, every night
Under the dark of the lonely stars
Over soft pillows and muffled cries
In the silence of the closed walls

Behind the noise of the cold showers
Midst of the mumbling crowd
Muffled in the soft rains
Transpired to hiding behind smiles

The cheek that lay barren
In wait of the fateful story
Of those endless sleepless nights
For that tear among the silently loud cries.

    • Why, thank you. ☺️

      Okay, let not compare each other. You are good in your own way. And I, to be quite frank am not that good. I am trying to get there.

      And you don’t have to apologise for replying late or anything as a matter of fact. I thought we were friends. 😐

      I am really glad to hear that. Thank you. 😊

      • Yes, friends understand. So you don’t have to apologise for such trivial things, especially not for being busy.

        And thank you very much. 😊
        I am very glad to hear that.
