The guy next door gazed every morning through the window,
Her smiles etiolated, at the sight of him, for she was afraid of where it could take them;
He gathered his courage, finally one day and made a move to which she responded;
Both were sure, or maybe not, that this would be the first or last…
Soon they met outside the window,
The gaze turned into laughter’s and smiles spread for longer,
There wouldn’t be any place than beside him, she thought to herself,
But till she gathered her courage, she had made it difficult for herself.
The lies came in, to meet this happiness;
She made efforts because, for her, he was worth it every second.
They met as strangers, completely unknown souls;
But now she was jealous to see him look towards the other side of the road!
This guy next door had become an important link to her own soul!
She shied away all the more,
Her thoughts gave her hundreds of clues!
She wasn’t ready to accept,
She was in love with this, extremely indifferent human!
His thoughts would pop-in from nowhere,
She dreamt of a happy life with him, in the islands!
He made her realize,
Real men exited still,
Or maybe, just her imaginations about him were too intense!
She refused to say it though,
Maybe she feared,
Maybe she wanted to hear,
So still she waited a little longer!
The passion with which he held her hand,
It made her confident of the dreams she had;
The sparkle in his eyes, lit up her world,
Like someone just oiled an old rusted chandelier!
Those deep dark eyes, she could lose herself completely into,
Made wise efforts to escape her every-move!
But she wondered to herself,
Did they wish to convey anything?
Or was it just another wave, to the silly girl, with expectations too great?
Or was it a little more, more of what she wanted to hear…
This extremely indifferent guy next door,
Well, Will he ever know;
That someone just loved him a little more…
