Curtains

Days have seen him gaze at her window

Hoping for a glimpse of her shadow

When she would peep through the veil

With a wave and a pensive smile

Nights have seen him wallow

With her photo by his side

And receiver on his pillow

 

One day the curtains took pity

And gave way

To reveal her photo

Partially shrouded in flowers

Silent was every visitor

Oblivious of her unspoken desire

Her soul crying for her desolate lover
