A chance encounter

Time to leave, but before,
A quick look all around.
Perchance, our eyes meet!

I pause. Turn back.
Give in to the invisible string
pulling me to you.

What worries gnaw 
at the core
of your heart?

What existential questions
fix your eyes
upon that spot?

Quietly, I tip-toe
lest any sound
break our connection.

I kneel in front of you,
and yet, you see
past (or through?) me.

Mahabubnagar district, Telangana, India. September 2014
