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 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.
Lucks a.k.a sulekha
