Got your wire asking me to meet; The wire that travelled rounds to reach me Weeks or even months to reach me After all that while you waited me going From where I have now traversed abound
Years didn't know what months held within Months didn't listen to day's throbbing But we boarded the same space and time It wasn't crowded with any ‘other ones’ Why didn't you meet me then, me around? Why didn't you meet me there, me waiting?
Silly or serious, the moments we digressed You turned your back and switched me off Making up, I sat by the side, hands feeling I knew you were pretending asleep; Then slowly gone to an indifferent self Why didn't you meet me there, by your side?
Remember all those questions I asked? Of compulsions and convictions of yore When you wore an eerie silence as answer Looking away saying I don't want to respond I had waited for you there, for long Why didn't you meet me there with the answers?
Remember all those things you have hidden Things that changed my takes on life On trust, respect, love and sorts You slept over them and woke up afresh I stood there unslept; carrying scars ever after Why didn't you sight me so, there?
We were walking along and away, Not knowing the long pauses we took Two souls trapped in the same maze Crossing and nodding days after days But more as strangers; on a courtesy call I wish you stopped and met me there.
Now that I have been on this travail for long With miles to go for that unknown destiny And a lost way back in labyrinths of mind Meetings won't be of hearts anymore; Would set us only on old routes we loathe So wait no more on your wire...
