The Crossroad


She stepped onto the lonely street with a heavy heart
Her eyes laden with droplets of pain, she walked in haste
She trudged past her favorite coffee shop wiping her tears
She wanted to break free… leave behind her past and walk away…

She walked and walked… She didn’t ever wish to stop…
Driven by her unbearable pain, fueled by her strong resolve…
She walked past everyone and everything she knew…
She walked past her dreams… She walked past her love…

She didn’t look ahead… neither did she look behind…
She just treaded ahead… her thoughts pushed her forth…
Her broken heart beat fast… rushing agitated blood through her…
Her eyes were now dry… there were now droplets of sweat…

“I hate him!” – She said to herself. “I hate everything.”
“I will never come back!” – She murmured in angst.
She paused for a moment to catch her breath
“How could he?”- She thought and then again she rushed ahead…

She was not alone… Her broken heart was walking with her…
There was a constant combat in her thoughts; a turbulent soul…
There was anger-a rebellion, and there was love-awhile lost.
There was sadness and hopelessness- her journey towards unknown…

But she walked and walked… sometimes slow and sometimes fast…
There was no certain direction… and there was no destination…
But she walked… her legs now hurt… her boots now prickled…
There seemed no end of the road ahead and no end behind…

Her steps were now heavy… her breath was now leaving her…
Her journey came to a halt as her heart now beat for the past…
She looked ahead… there was an unforeseen crossroad in her path…
She was panting… she was dehydrating… She had to stop at last…

One road lead dauntingly uphill… one lead scarily downhill…
One lead to the endless woods and the other was just behind…
She felt lonely and scared… She felt like looking behind for a while…
She turned around slowly… He was there- Her Love… all the way along…
