The picture in my mind.

by Shreya

I won’t change my thoughts


let me still feel that you care.

I’ll smile

and dance

and visualise your smiling face

and recollect our witty talks.

But I won’t go back

to those cruel assumptions

which creep in like earthworms

on a rainy day.

No, I won’t change

the picture in my mind,

of us, smiling

and forgetting all about time.

And till I go to sleep tonight

I won’t talk to you;

as I’m afraid

that the picture in my mind

it will change.
