It’s only been a month,

But my mind has been away for years,

I couldn’t wish her a proper goodbye,

There was only angst,

Of wanting to leave..

I hope you understand,

I had to leave,

You had me hostage..

Sometimes I wake up,

At her shores,

Anticipating the heavy humidity,

The warm sea breeze,

The yellow autos,

Crowded streets,

The flyovers,

The chaos.

Everything is different,

I go miles,

No other soul in sight,

Everything is clean,

And quiet,

And eerie,

But the sun,

It still shines bright,

but my days still dark…

I hadn’t been away from her in so long,

It feels like a dream,

Has it really been so long?
