What happened to us?

What happened to us?

What happened to us,
Our acquaintance and all?
When we laughed and lived
Like jolly birds in a nest.
When we loved and joy even on many F(L)IGHTS
Beyond fantasies and awe.
What happened to us?

Where did our rhythm stop?
Like the sudden halt of the heart
When life cease to be
On judgement day.
What happened to us?

Who? Who gave sound to the gong?
Didn’t we dance at the beautiful
Flow of the Mocking birds
At the village square of our bedroom?
Where passion and joyful moan elope.
What happened to us?

Our sweltering pains now bleed
We are far apart even though we see daily.
Though the world, a global village,
Our hearts keep no record of memories.
Our songs, now a cacophony.
What happened to us?
Can you please answer with a whisper
As you used to do.
