i forgot

by Kavita

the inmates of an asylum called life
walked through the mirage of love

swam in the water of promises
nd reached the indispensable shore

drenched, they stopped by to take a second look
he looked at me and i looked at him

we looked again, nd swam hard
i was flowing, forgetting air and breathing water

he was flowing , but couldnt breathe
the water beneath him was drying, and i saw him crying

nd den i watched him turn , he turned to live
to live by air,

he reached the shore again,
he turned to look

i was still flapping my new fins
i was still smiling

but he was frowning
i waved for his signal
he turned around and shouted ‘i forgot!’

he left with a frown to let me drown
m still drowning
wondering what he forgot?
