The Note

The Note

A Poem by Arabdha

A cold winter morning..
as the wind breezed through the broken window..

my vision grazed
the note in my study...
right in my sight
it was planted
intimidating,inviting,waiting to be read..

Alas ! It didn't have a bearer..
But when have norms stopped
an idyllic mind..
from obsessing over a devious ploy?

And then-there was the note..
yellowed over time..
its frayed edges-
effusing an unavoidable allure..

and even as I waged
my jujitsu of conscientious turmoil
the horned Satan seemed to have an upper hand..

prepared I was-
to commit my sin-
when in walked the maid..
ready to sweep the storm-

and she brushed out and away all she saw..
an incarnate of the terminator..!
Even before I could mouth a word..
the note was whirling through the shredder !

and off she went -
faster than the storm..
shattering my morning reverie..

the angel seemed smug in happiness..
the horned Satan unhappy !

...And now all your left with is wonder.. Great write, I personally, probably would have read the note out of curiosity and put it back how it was, it was after all in your study, was it not? I mean if it where in someone else's study maybe not.. Either way well done :)

Temptation and curiosity get to the best of us. I'm surprised the narrator try to piece it together.

Interesting. Not really sure what to make of this.

You must have great patience not to have immediately looked at the note. Now, you'll never know what it said. I just hope it wasn't a winning lottery ticket.

Thank you for reading !
Part witty, part sad - and only as a fleeting piece of paper or thought can be. Perhaps you should change the maid .. she disturbs your thinking, interrupts your imagination's reveries! I like the flow of this; somehow, it invites more than one read, if only to see the scene you've laid - 'and off the went - faster than the storm.. shattering my morning revierie.. '

Thank you so much Neva !
The best thing about this piece is that I can't really figure out what it is about. Awesome wordplay. The beauty lies in the openess.
