A Tiny Tale (Poem) – Part 2

I wake up so groggy

Reach out for my phone

Last night was so special

She called me her own

I read out her message

Yet again – I’m so mad

It still means the same

Thank God! I’m so glad

Are we really friends now?

I’m sure that we are

I get ready to go to work

and pull out my car

Each song that I play in there

Reminds me her face

Those wavy long hair

Her gait and its grace

I park and rehearse aloud

The lines I will say

She leaves me so dumb

I need to find a way

I rush to the building

Glancing at every face

She may be in already

I pick up my pace

Elevator slides open

I step out on the floor

I peek around the office

She’s standing by the door

My smile grows so wide

She’s flawless in her suit

I unsheathe my pistol

And take the aim to shoot

A clap on my shoulder

With a jump I whirl around

My boss glares back at me

Here comes the drooling hound

He barks aloud an order

To meet him in fifteen

I follow him shuddering inside

Just like a frightened teen

In his cabin for an hour

He howls about my fault

I’m happy I could save her

From this brutal assault

I run back looking for her

She’s nowhere to be seen

With a long face I move out

To drink in some caffeine

Coming back holding my mug

I peep inside her room

There she is laughing out loud!

It lightens all my gloom

She chats away with everyone

But never looks at me

I see her picking up her purse

And walking out for tea

I recall the day before

The blunder she had made

I jumped in front to shield her

Throwing myself on blade

Did she really shun me now?

Maybe I’m at mistake

She talked with me the whole night

Could all of that be fake?

I breathe in and breathe out

Then focus on my task

Smiling at my own foolishness

I wear back my mask

Something of her then reaches me

Before I feel her touch

To pull me back onto the earth

She gives my arm a clutch

Lunch in café. Right Now.

She orders in some style

Finding me kind of dumbstruck

She flashes me her smile

Clouds of doubt floating above

The ones that I had made

Her sunshine streaming through them

So quickly do they fade!

I spring up with the speed of light

Trembling I don’t know why

I’ve never felt so ecstatic

I’ve never felt so high

I summon up the stud in me

And try to look composed

Her eyes keenly reading mine

I feel so much exposed

I too notice her openly

And keep holding her gaze

Lashing out with her eyelashes

She sets my heart ablaze

She thanks but accepts it not

My whipping for her sake

No longer could she hide herself

My job is on the stake

I ask her not to bother much

I have things in control

I tell her just to feed herself

And not her guilty soul

We waste away over an hour

On talking more and more

I think about my future

And the gems it has in store

I stagger back swaying in bliss

Her voice replayed in mind

I knew she was so good looking

On top of that she’s kind

I’ll offer her a ride tonight

And drop her to her place

The prospect of being with her

Again lights up my face

I finish off my work in time

And dash back to her seat

But find her system switched off

Her workstation so neat

I kick myself for reaching late

Has she left for the day?

I ask myself now what to do?

To leave as well or stay?

I go outside to take a stroll

And gather up my thoughts

I need to tell her how I feel

And free my heart of knots

I play in mind the dialogues

And then take out my phone

Spotting a bench under a tree

I sit down there alone

It’s then I look across the road

And see her standing there

Sniffling, she’s staring at her feet

So messy are her hair

A blue sedan screeches to halt

Steps out a tallish dude

He pulls my girl into a hug

Now that’s my life – so screwed!

She pulls away shaking her head

But gets into his car

I gaze at them seething inside

What a day I’ve had so far!

Leaving behind a corpse in me

They fade into the crowd

I kneel down holding my head

Wailing within so loud…
