The Beauty in the Crowd


Far away she stood, away from the chaotic crowd
The merrymaking seemed hard to douse
The claps & whistles would never drown
She stood there, alone & unmoved..
Oh! I fell for that girl ... the Beauty in the crowd!

I stopped in my tracks, ignoring the human abound
My gaze fixed at her, hypnotically as it may sound
Her pretty face with a void expression
Evoked my attention, I knew there had to be a reason..
Oh! I fell for that girl ... the Beauty in the crowd!

I observed her face, trying to read her
A hundred thousand emotions resonating on it
Hope, despair, love, tragedy .. I almost lost count
Never had I seen them so vividly, I fail to recollect..
Oh! I fell for that girl ... the Beauty in the crowd!

My feet stepped forward, I knew I had to talk
But she moved before I could, and joined the pervious crowd
I cursed myself in an utter despair
And the next moment, it was all over with a deafening sound..
Oh! I fell for that girl ... the Suicide Bomber!

Hey rohan,
Thanks for ur comments... I wrote it after 'attempting' the Microwave paper in term test 2... i had almost 30 mins in hand before i could leave the exam hall, so i thought, why not utilize the blank side of the question paper.. and it turned out to be a poetry!!! ha ha ha
