A Nightmare

a poem by Sudarshan Madhav Karhale

The one I’ve always known
as my best friend
seemed to be hiding something from me;
I couldn’t ignore at that moment.

I had a strong feeling
of asking her about it;
but couldn’t muster up
the courage to do it.

I don’t know why do I’ve
‘this’ thought going into my dumb mind,
that she would leave the tuition classes
in no meantime.

Hundreds of memories are flashing
in front of my eyes,
like I would be never seeing her again
for a long time.

She says,”You”re just a physcopath;
don’t have a control on your emotions.
You’re not more than a tiny raindrop;
yet to touch the floors of the deepest oceans.”

The sun glows dark
this very morning;
my heart’s beat sounds
like it was mourning.

I couldn’t catch a glimpse
of her beautiful smile,
her absence arose an unwanted insecurity
for a while.

I fear if the scary nightmare
comes out to be true,
then I might lose,
from the picturesque of my life,
all the colourful shades of hue.
