The Poetry of Fortune

Suresh Rai

It is said that
they meet at infinity
two parallel lines.

He, the believer
waited years and years
believing so,
believing it blindly.

Infinity is something
that never comes as a destination
Poor his innocence!

He ran
embracing his pure love for her
in one line.
In another
She ran carrying the future for their life
both dreaming about meeting at infinity
Oh the innocence of them!

Why love and future doesn’t walk together?
Why one of them has to be left behind?
Two unfortunate lovers!

The wise men say,
The fortune of meeting
two unfortunate lovers
Is also a fortunate thing.
