Installment Driver

Installment   Driver short poem

Photo by torbakhopper

When my parents wished me to drive back home
The first half , I said
No dear ,I brought a two wheeler ,let me wage the installment
The second half , I said
No dear, I brought a car , let me wage the installment
The third half, I said
No dear ,I brought a plot, let me wage the installment
The fourth half, I said
No dear, I brought a villa ,let me wage the installment
Year later I wished to drive back home
Yet again I wage the installment
For the empty chair and vacant cot.

From My Journals anxiety prose poem

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
