Another Rendezvous

by Mihir Deshmukh   Aug 27, 2014


The day was gloomy, particular rainy weather,
and for a jacket or umbrella, I never bother.
All the way to class, it didn't rain,
thank god, I didn't care for that pain.

But as soon as I entered, I was struck by lightning,
that glow, that beauty, that aura, magnificently frightening.
And everything else faded away into nothingness,
All I could see was you, in that little black dress.

And that bloody teacher, bombarding on economics,
it was only you and me, people who weren't geeks.
And while his words, flew over us like planes,
I was trying to peep, beyond those panes.

Crystal glass, those big eyes of yours ,
I wonder what's behind those glass doors!
And that smile just made my day,
It became mid spring, sky no more Grey.

And thus started a journey that lasted two hours,
I was lost in you, wished I had flowers.
And you, speaking so much, just with those eyes,
gone were the two hours, the way time flies.

But at the end, we had to split,
just before we leave, you pass me a chit.
And glory to the heavens, it's good news,
can't wait for next Saturday, for another rendezvous.

    Hmm thank god, I didn't want to carry that pain

    Or it may need to be re-written some other way so it may be clear that that's the pain you are referring to.

    ^^ Can you explain how is the rain causing you pain? Otherwise, that last line makes no sense. The function that you are giving it, it's to work as a filler which fillers just distract readers and make them lose focus of the poem. As a result, the rhyme falls under the notion that it was chosen just for the sake of having something there.

    But as soon as I entered, I was struck by lightning,

    -- the last line.. are the two "that" required? In my opinion only one will do the trick.

    Overall, try to keep your metaphors more consistent. If you do, the poem will be more enjoyable. :) I mean you have creativity, (that's good) but I think that if you work towards organizing your ideas better along with your rhymes, the creativity will shine. However, I like the narrative in this piece. Keep writing.

      The"that" was a mistype ,and the pain being refers to here is the pain of carrying an umbrella or jacket which can take up a lot space .
