That Lane - A to Z Challenge

That Lane – A to Z Challenge


I still remember that lane, ganglingly tall

Where she lives, beguiling and engaging


Svelte and perfumed, the lane turned

As she walked past me, her pallu brushing my arm


I had stood there the whole evening,

Waiting for her under the dim shaft of light


The lamp-post still stands straight as

Decently morbid thoughts whizzes past, I ask


My heart, Had she come after I had left?

Had the promises made, entered the narrow one-way


Heart of the residents, well-behaved and moral

In this world of shadowy and horribly respectable politicians?
