It’s alright.

by Shreya

And on returning home

Came to my mind

Some strange thoughts–

Oh, no, I talked too much

I laughed too much

Wasn’t my head working then?

I was walking the wrong way,

Made a fool of myself

And oh, he’ll never talk with me again!

But he was perfect.

I said this to myself

Over and over again

Until I said,

“Cool down. Everything’s alright.

Just go to sleep.”
