A poem

A poem tugged at my sleeve,
and tried to catch my eye.
I ignored the gentle pull and,
Walked away, unmindful,
of its tiny sigh.
It followed me like a puppy,
loyal, loving and playful.
Hopped, skipped and danced,
Around me, trying to catch,
my attention.

My strides didn’t falter,
My path I didn’t alter.
Kept looking straight ahead,
Ignoring the poem, as if,
It didn’t at all matter.

I outran the poem and sat in a bar,
filled with smoke and dirty wallpaper.
There were people, everywhere,
that I could see.
The poem must have crept up,
on me, while I wasn’t looking.
Cause I suddenly had the urge,
to put it down on paper.
It came out nice and read so well,
That it swelled my heart with pride.
I wish you could have read it too,
It was about love and about you.

    Sulekkha, the poem caught up to you at last and demanded to be written. Aren’t you grateful that the muse has never abandoned you?
