There was no grief or
a timeless yesterday.
She blurs the moments
into one black smear
and stands like a misfit
when time trudges.

She wants to know
what today means;
somewhere else it is
tomorrow, a new dawn
with another to-do list.

We all are in one planet,
some early, some late;
in between the balancing act,
that lost time is never found.

  1. Compassion is one of the best words in the world, Shailaja, thank you so much for reminding me of it. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well.

  2. I used to call myself moment catcher until some time ago; now in 30s I think I’m old to give myself a name. 🙂 Those moments are never going return, so strange right? If I knew well, I would have lived my childhood for ten more years! Thank you for your visit and comment, Archana. 🙂

  3. Here I so agree, Moon. 🙂 What is better than chocolate in this world? 🙂 Thank you for your visit and comment. 🙂

  4. Thank you for the comment, Suyash. It’s a result of multi-tasking that Im not proud of.. 🙂
