Poet Lady Katz (new forum post): The Scent

Poetry Talk

New post from Riya Jaiswal

The Scent

As she waited by the shore

With an expression long lost forelone 

Biting cold wind went down her nerves

Still she waited on the verge

The waves came n forth


Touched her feet and there she saw—

Under the moonlight there he was

In the loneliness she smelt the scent

Which belonged only to her

With a blink their eyes met


And soon their shadows got tangled 

Tears sparkled and kisses exchanged 

He handed her a pearl of hope

A hug so warm and she fainted


She asked the nurse,”Where he is? “

“Passed away in an accident a day before”

Chill went down her spine

As she remembered yesterday's night

Her gaze went on a piece of stone


Inclosed in her shaking fist

A pearl of hope was there beheld

In that loneliness she smelt a scent

Which belonged only to her

As she flung the abortion pills

Back into the dustbin

It was then, when the BABY kicked!
