She felt a qualm of anxiety from his abrupt silence.
The uncanny scent and burble of the night tickled
Their love had proved a bitter disillusion.
The rhizome of distance had grown longer and
time’s constant betrayal created a hushed repulsive
spectacle in their hearts.
Their connection was broken and their world swirled
to a beat-less song under a heat wave.
With mutiny in his mind, he suppressed every sign
of shock as his baritone voice gathered remonstrance.
His rejection was civil- a bumptious, succinct reply.
A classy expression of no importance, and an
eloquent yet insensitive response to her feelings.
“It’s over between us- It’s not you, but me. You will
find someone better”.
His flippant tone reverberated inside her head as
the wheel of thought rotated in a bleak groove.
The abandoned meadow inside her mind suddenly
looked irresponsive as she bobbed her head to
his cold rap battle.
The din inside her mind subsided.
Without a word, her heart abdicated whatever
she felt for him.
Feelings of pity momentarily filled her head like
Emptiness took over as she retired to an island of
solitude, silence and serenity.
Leaving him to his declaration of rejection.
Leaving him posing rhetorical questions to himself
in the presence of guilt.
Indifferent to his revolt of personal conviction and
reverse psychology, her heart finally found closure
amid the dreadful calamities of time.
Her response to his blaring speech on rejection
was a wordless farewell.
Without hate or drama- she quietly deleted herself
from his equation.
