Hours in front of a screen,
Willing it to change from last seen to seen,
Every second a million heart beats,
Your words are my only treat.
Seconds to minutes to hours to days,
Waiting to see your beautiful display picture face.
Friends or more?
Is it love? Did I score?
At last I see the ‘typing..’ word,
Will I be a crushed or a love bird?
The will to live, a reason to die,
Heaving the burden, I let out a big sigh.
Struggling to go on, wanting to give up,
An option to go back ,
Ever present in front as a Bait.
Huffing and puffing, break the obstacles,
End in sight, omnipresence of excitement lingering everywhere.
A backpack on shoulder, a stick in hand,
Small victory achieved, happiness engulfing my world.
The sun shines bright on my face,
Alas I win my life’s most important race.
