From beginning to end
I remember, it was a usual hectic day in May,
the class was to start and I was on my way.
Murmurs and gossips were over the horizon,
judgements and assumptions meeting collisions.
I was engaged in fixing the stubborn zipper of my backpack, which was really hard,
in that instant, you entered the room as a freshly adorned greeting card.
Slightly embarrassed at gaping at you,
still hoping to not get caught,
from some knowing gazes,
your name I tried and sought.
Since then from my mind
your image had been hard to erase,
thanks to your alluring charm and grace.
It was infatuation at first sight,
my heart cordially embraced it
but my brain put up a fight!
Little did I know,
how wrong I was from beginning to end.
My brain taunted ,“ I told you so!”
and my heart mourned, “ I know I'd
take forever to mend.”
