A flame of love

by Pragya Maurya (17)
St Mary’s Convent Inter College, Allahabad

Here comes the rain again
Falling in the dark.
There I stand alone
Hiding tears in my heart.

Neither in your past
Nor in my present
Take me to that future
Together which we planned.

Days have already passed
Months have arrived.
But a year without you
Seems hard to survive.

Come back and hold me again
Love me till I die.
Or take your memories back
Let those dreams be a lie.
