For the to-be brides. . .

by swethakp
Alone I traipsed into this new city
No friends, no family within miles
Apprehensive, I entered the room of five,
A little uneasy on the new people, new lifestyles.

The first people I met,
In the lift, two girls ever so quiet;
My first day in the new city unfolded,
Nothing bad nor good, just yet.

As the weeks swirled into months,
A bond ever so silently snuggled into our hearts
The feeling I was new, that I was alone
Lay long forgotten in the ramparts.

The trips we took to the supermarkets,
With a single thing in mind;
But winding up buying at least one of every item,
Leaving no item untouched behind.

The times we dined at restaurants,
Laughing our heads off at silly stuffl
Not bothering to maintain our statuses
As dignified ladies, sure enough.

The days we ordered food to our room,
When one of us was sure to be on a call;
And though our stomachs howled in hunger
Wait we would, squinting at the culprit in the hall.

A dynamic bomb of a girl,
The fashionista of our room,
Tinier than me, cuter than us all,
Not only makes cute blunders,
But narrates it in the funniest way possible.
That’s my Susan, the bubbly girl turned woman.

The outwardly dignified,
Inwardly ultra sweet,
Empathising to a fault,
Imitating people so perfectly,
A partner to all my craziness,
That’s my Merin, with all the beauty within.

I’m happy I met you both,
I’m ecstatic we had crazy times together,
Yet I’m sad.
I’m delighted you are getting married,
I’m thrilled you are starting a new life,
Yet I’m sad.
I’m sad you left.
Let others and the author know if you liked it

Liked it alot?

Dheep and Amoli were racing as usual from Dheep's house to Amoli's hut on the other end of the paddy field. Amoli always won the race, so when Dheep reached Amoli's hut before her, he was surprised and looked back disbelievingly. His disbelief...

As she took her last breath, she had only one thought. Not remorse, not guilt. Not shame, not anguish. She was at peace. Finally.
