All of a sudden something welled within me,
it was more like a river in tide.
Ravaging floods sweeping away
everything to plunder the banks.
I could just manage to see her fade out
and dissolve in the crowd ,for one last time.
She was gone now.
As the full force of the floods
now hit me , stronger than ever.
Waves after waves of desperation
engulfed me , in repeated succession,
without any chance of respite.
My legs were giving away.
I was no more able to stand on them.
In a slow motion,
I heaped on the ground on my knees,
bend and thrust my face
within the two palms of my hand,
seeking the elusive sanctuary.
I could feel the warmth
of my tears streaking down the cheeks
and tasted its saltiness on my lips.
My whole existence came to a naught
in these few seconds.
Nothing could hold me back.
Not even the embarrassment
of making a scene in public.
I wept without any restraint.
The walls were now coming down,
with a heart wrenching sound
and flowing away with the flood waters.
