Shattered Dreams…Ad Infinitum

Starry eyed I sit gazing at nothing
Friends adorning my hands with henna
A shining bindi adorning my forehead
And a blush rendering beauty to my cheeks
Lost in my own world
Welcoming my future and beloved with open arms
Shatterer of dreams walks in
Holding a missive in his hand
Aware yet unaware of the holocaust
He wreaks in my life
The paper holds but a line
"Comrade killed in action"
Numbed I sink against the wall
Tears washing away the half done henna
And my dreams along with it
Half done henna
A half lived life
All done away in a second
Here my tears flow copiously
and there your blood flows incessantly
Seconds ago I was among the numerous
Brides embracing a future
Full of anticipated bliss
Now I join another clan
Of war widows
Embracing a future??
Full of treasured memories
And shared dreams
Bearing the cross of
unfulfilled love and
Unfulfilled life.
