When I Met You

When I Met You

written by: Madhumita



when i met you

that very first day

the yellowed

crumpled and torn


open envelope

in your hand

you turned it around

shook it

nothing came out

it was empty

you saw nothing

you threw it

down on the ground

as i lay there

on the cold barren ground

you felt me

you thought it was me

you stopped

and bent down

to pick it up

you stopped again

deep in your thoughts

you touched me

but left me there

there on the cold barren ground

i met you

for the last time
