For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a street scene of an old town in Europe.
Footsteps echo in a silent street,
Two souls destined never to meet,
Waiting patiently for her to come
Clock ticks away hours, one by one.
Nighttime smoulders to a hazy dawn
Defeat and sorrow in a heart forlorn.
Walking away, shoulders hunched,
Weary, tired, his confidence punched:
Not to know she had tried in vain
To reach him on the evening train:
A drunken fool stole the life from her,
Snuffed out her existence in a frenzied blur:
She watches from another plain
And wonders if they’ll find each other again.
