Let's toast

Let's toast

A Poem by Abhilash Hegde

Amidst the myriad thoughts
and those screeching honks,
I met my past
to reminisce those glorious times.

On a cold chilling evening,
down those four exciting summers,
we had bumped into each other lives.

The roaring wind
blew past my silent ears,
echoing the chimes of her.

Time had learnt to
to swallow its tongue,
but the dumb heart
relented to skip her beat.

I held my glass of wine
and toasted it in wilderness,
as the chilling rain drops
swept past my dusty eyes...

................Amen!
Unrequited love (and lost love) can really do a number on the heart. But it certainly makes for a good read. Take care, Abhilash! Nice to meet you!

Thank you Kym for your review.. I'm glad to hear you liked it.
Indeed this sadly reflective piece is quite moving as the protagonist recalls their loss and yet is now able to accept it and even celebrate it. Nicely penned!
