An Occurrence

Written by: Mathusaan G.

An average man
A nameless face
The median
Of human race

Not your knight
In shining armor
Not Master chief
Spartan soldier

Rise and shine
Take a shower
Get dressed
In an hour

Go to work
Sit all day
In a cubicle
For average pay

Go back home
Sore feet
Back to bed
And repeat

This was how I
Spent my life
Till you came
That night

It was raining hard
You were standing there
In the cold breeze
With your wet hair

Before you caught a cold
I let you in
You took a bath
I made tea and gin

We talked awhile
Got to know you
Let you stay the night
After we ate stew

Never thought about it
Till last week
When I saw you
And your dimpled cheek

You just thanked me
And we talked some
But when you did leave
My heart went numb

After that day
Life was a bore
I thought of you
Many times more

If we meet again
Tell you my love
Till that day
I’m a flightless dove

With hope that
Might never come true
I still believe
Cuz that’s what I do
