Why you flew to the moon?



Why you flew to the moon?
leaving me all alone
I can’t decide
at these cross roads of life
on these crowded streets
no hand to hold on to
Why you flew to the moon?
not taking me along
I have tears in my eyes
no one there to wipe them out
on these rainy nights
I can’t see you among stars
Why you flew to the moon?
snapping my dreams
in a flash of light
darkness wins
my heart succumbs to fears
forgotten in your arms
Why you flew to the moon?
with cradle at my arm
I can’t fend for myself
who is there?
to protect me
when shadows lurk in dark
Why you flew to the moon?
death could have waited
a bit longer
you dint fight
was I not reason enough?
to live on
Why you flew to the moon?
the child is
still unnamed
who will hold it’s finger?
What shall I tell?
What star shall I point to?
Why you flew to the moon?
I have questions
you left unanswered
what was the hurry?
God!
We had no enemies!
Why you flew to the moon?
We were to
grow old together
I used to love that sound
why did it stop beating?
my ear on your heart
Why you flew to the moon?
What did go wrong?
You were to come back
at end of day
like every other day
by sunset
Why you flew to the moon?
Why is there no sunrise again?
where is my fairy-tale?
Where is my
"And they
lived happily ever after?"
Why an abrupt end?
Why you flew to the moon?
I used to hear your
foot steps
now all I hear
are memories
replaying themselves
Why you flew to the moon?

This poem was written after seeing an anime : Busou Renking (Arms Alchemy)but now it resembles a story in news paper of a man who died in Mumbai blasts, who was newly married. That is why I was not sure whether it is right time to post it, but on taking few trusted go-ahead opinions I have published this.

Ty! Everyone, for liking it, but pain of blast victims, though it depicts, is just an unfortunate coincidence.
