We Were Supposed To Meet Today - David L. Hmar


We were
Supposed 
To meet today
Get up close
And personal
Chat over
A double scoop
Of ice cream
And relive
The past week
With relish
And seal it
With a kiss
(Or two…)



We were 

Supposed 
To walk today 
So I could 
Propose 
My undying 
Desire
For you 
And then brush 
Past your hand 
And delicately 
Only touch you 
Because 
Anything else 
Would 
Land us both 
In a deep deep soup… 

We were 
Supposed 
To hear 
Our hearts 
Beat 
In the 
Silence 
Today, 
Look 
And stare 
At each 
Other 
Make love 
With our 
Eyes
But
When I awoke today
To tell you I love you,
I found
You were
Nowhere to
Be found
And everything
Including
The dream
Came crumbling
Down…


David L. Hmar is presently based in Kolkota, pursuing his studies, and dreams of "winning the Booker and Nobel Prize for the Mizos, and counts Hemingway as his chief inspiration as the 'the writer who made me want to live a writer's life even it meant being poor.' The aspiring author writes because he has lived these moments and wishes that others too, in reading his works, would experience the zest for life and love."
