MEMORIES

By ADITI MALHOTRA

Memories of last rain were still clouding my mind.

And here it is…raining yet again.

The last rain came with a heavy storm of despair..

Everything broken in such a way, that’s difficult to repair

I had made a promise to myself then,

I would always keep indoors,

won’t let anyone cause me a damage again…

As I was lying in my bed, feeling little scared

listening to the raindrops on my window pane and thundering clouds.

It was all black-except flashes of hope when the lightning ate the darkness.

In those flashes I saw a Silhouette.

It was a silhouette for sure, but felt as if it was smiling at me.

I got scared even more.

I had kept my doors shut. How did it enter?

I didn’t want to get carried away again

I didn’t want to drench in tears again

I didn’t want to hear my heart thumping again..

I lay there silently; just watching, .not making a move

but it was there. Coming closer.

it still didn’t say anything. just smiled.

The darkness began to settle the rain had also stopped..

And the sun had started to peep from, between the clouds.

I saw a Rainbow.

The light filled my room; the silhouette had a face now

Pleasant, charming and smiling..

I felt peace within myself, contented by its presence..

I wasn’t scared any more.

I was ready to let the memories of last rain sway by.

I was ready to feel the rain and the rainbow again.

But I was still wondering that how did it enter through my closed doors.

And then I realized that love doesn’t knock doors before entering our hearts!

  1. BEAUTIFULLY COMPOSED POEM; Rain, the metaphor for pain, grief, hope, renewal of faith very poignantly captured, through all that accompanies and follows rain.
    sense of perplexity and realization in the last lines i touching and spiritually uplifting. Rain does wash away doubts and imagined fear.

    Thanks
