May be because i was a kid then

That was a chilled winter night,

When I was asleep and for some reason my family was still awake.

While I was weaving my own dreams, someone's world was shattering,

Breaking into tiny peices.

They were screaming at the top of their voice.

At the tiny age of playing and doing mischief, 10,

I heard something shattering

But that didn't hurt me much,

May be because I was a kid then.

Seeing those broken glass bangles,

That were once the beauty

Of the soft, smooth and curvy wrist of the lady of my house,

I felt something unusual but didn't think much about it. 

May be because I was a kid then.

I witnessed the smudged vermillion from a head that once 

Was adorning beauty.

I didn't understand why was it so,

May be because I was a kid then.

When everyone was crying their heart out,

My eyes didn't shed a single drop, 

I wasn't aware of the facts then,

May be because I was a kid then.

Now that I have grown up,

I understand what happened that day.

My eyes now, shed oceans and I wail

As the heart now realizes that it lost

The lifeline that was letting it beat.

Shining writer
