Rain-Story

"Don’t threaten me with love, baby. Let’s just go walking in the rain."- Bobby Rain.

On a rainy day,
I dress myself in soft linen,
Flowers be my trinkets,
I darken my eyes with kohl,
Tint my lips with covert flush.

On a rainy day,
I dream of you, lying on the couch,
I curl my locks with fingers, dreamily,
Muse over the sepia days.

On a rainy day,
I make paper-boats and sail,
To the world of ‘used-to-be’s
And, cherish every bit of them.

On a rainy day,
I wait on the casement for you,
Doodle on the wet glass,
Draw heart-marks with blushing cheeks.

On a rainy day,
You would come, I predict,
You would kiss my forehead,
And, we’d get drenched too.
