Theme: Pretense

Pretending to be Strangers

All gathered at an event
Indeed for me that was
an awaited precious moment.
I was impatient to get a glimpse of you.
But lost control over my heartbeats
the moment I saw you.
Took control over my emotions
even though it was a tough situation.
It was my earnest desire to see you
so I made up my mind to enjoy
your presence for the hours few.
Became nostalgic and a desire arose
Wanted to exchange a few words
and look into your eyes, my image so close.
But you pretended to be a stranger
which made me more stronger.
Time flew, hours passed by
I too gave up and walked away
without saying goodbye.
Yes dear you taught me how to pretend.
Don't worry, will remain a stranger when we meet again
though impossible to forget that you loved me then
Still I allow you to forget and pretend .....

Welcome, My Dear

This lovely poem of yours reminded me of Kishore's Anamika song


And also Kishore's Ajnabi Tum Jaane Pehchaane Se Lagte Ho
