LOVE THIEF  (PART I)

"Mommy what does love mean?",

I asked lying on her lap when I was seven.

"Love, girl? It is a powerful feeling where, when you have it you start to sacrifice, care, share and you are always keen",

Was her answer and she pat me to sleep since the clock struck eleven.

 

"Mom what is love",

I asked, when an innocent teen I became.

"Go find it yourself", she replied while feeding our dove.

I was beginning to rame.

 

"Mom I couldn't find it"

I told her after a day.

"If you couldn't find it will find you, all you do is wait",

"Mom does it mean a boy with love will find me even if its late", I say.

 

"Yes dear exactly", came the reply.

"What if it doesn't happen, mommy"

"You steal it silly"

"Steal love?", I didn't understand, was I being a dummy.

 

Five winters passed,

Love did not happen,

I was not amazed,

Story is yet to sharpen.

 

Left the shelter, left my mother,

To find love somewhere,

Farther,

Don't know to start from where.

 

After a ten night journey,

In the deserted forest,

Stopped in front of a hut, so lonely,

To beg for a few days rest.

 

I rapped on the door,

Came outside, an old eerie lady.

"Can I please have shelter, food and a change of clothes I wore?"

"Come in dear", her voice was soothing and steady.
