And I still could not sleep
I was in bed by 11
Still it’s not happening
Sleep rings the bell
And runs away like a small kid,
By the time I open the door.
It’s becoming naughty day after another.
Let me make it clear to you
(Before you provide an explanation that
‘Because you slept in the afternoon that’s why you aren’t sleepy anymore”)
I wasn’t able to sleep in the afternoons too.
It’s strange that I tried every household remedy
Still there is no sign of ‘sleeplessness’
Is that what they call
‘To sleep is to recharge, but my battery isn’t dead’
My world is asleep tonight
But I am still awake
Tossing over in my bed
Trying different postures
Still no use.
OK , I’ll be calm now
And close my eyes.
Oh,this feels good.
This is pleasant
I can see the two of us
Sitting on a bench
Her hand close to mine
We both smiled
And right then we knew
We both were in love.
She came forward
And kissed me.
Her eyes wet now.
As she stood up to leave
‘I’ll always love you ‘, she said
And before I could say anything
She gradually grew fainter in my view
Receding and receding
Till you became blurry
And finally disappeared
Horrified I ran towards her
I couldn’t find her anywhere
All that I could hear was her voice
As if coming from a long distance
“Forget me Forget me,
We were never meant to be together.
” Noooooooooooo”, I shouted – and immediately awaking I found myself on the floor, where I had fallen.
On the spur of the moment there was a beep sound on my messenger
“Good morning baby common wake up its 6 am in the morning”
Came her message.
