You Rejected My Request

By Dr.Ratan Bhattacharjee | Category :: Poem

I did not stop my car when I saw you on the road
I wanted to efface my memories and unload.
You were walking on the footpath all alone
Your sweating forehead in the sunny day shone.

Things were all bright
When it was raining all night
I sent you friendship request on facebook
That day you rejected me outright.
Your beautiful post and beautiful poems
Mind blowing look
Mesmerised me on the Facebook
You made my mind a winged bird
Only a calling was required.
Alas! the call did not come
My car is now stuck in the traffic jam.

Now I am in the car with the steering in my hand
I feel I am flower plant drying up in the desert land
I can press the accelerator and drive fast and some action
I can speed up towards no fixed direction.
But signal was not green for me
I felt lonely and the road was foggy and snowy.
Someone has planted rhododendrons beside the road
They won’t last long I know
They will get a death kiss from the cold white snow.

Our story was grand as Scheherazade finished it telling
I enjoyed it like a sunrise on the Tiger Hills seen from Peiling

Yesterday I talked with you about hashnuhena, jasmine
And the darling blackberries,
Today I am in the car with my lame steering wheel
And only sad memories which I don’t want to cherish.

Everything suddenly changed
After you had rejected my request for friendship
Life becomes an unchartered ocean
And I became a radarless ship.
