……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

i cried when i shifted homes

i sobbed when i changed school

i was sad when he didn’t write

i was woeful , an emotional fool

……………………………………………………………………………………………….

 i mourned the loss of my dog

i was miserable when i sold my car

i was unhappy when i saw a beggar

hungry and thirsty outside a bar

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

the tears rolled down endlessly

when i got married and left home

i was distraught on leaving my parents

i didn’t want them to be alone

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

and when death took my dad away

my whole world came crumbling down

till date the wounds haven’t healed

till date i haven’t visited my home town

………………………………………………………………………………….

the  ruthless chasm of bathos

keeps taking me in its fold

i wish i was more strong hearted

life would have been easy manifold
