The Lady and her last chance

The lady who went out,
For a walk with her guy.
Little she knew,
This was gonna be her last time.

The lady who couldn’t,
Spend time on her guy.
Little she knew,
This was gonna be her last time.

The lady who walked on the left with her man,
But held a phone on her right.
Little she knew,
This was gonna be her last time.

The lady who knew,
Things weren’t smooth with her man,
Little she knew,
This was gonna be her last time.

The lady who walked away,
With saying the 3 words to her man.
Little she knew,
That was her last chance.

The lady who had prioritized,
Work ahead of her love life,
Little she knew,
This was her last intimate time together.

The lady who was,
On a walk with her man.
Little she knew,
What destiny had her planned.

As the lady said,
Her last good-byes to her man.
Little she knew,
This was gonna be her last time.

The lady who used to wake up to,
‘Good morning messages’ from her man.
Woke up to a message saying,
Her man died in a road accident last night…

I got the idea behind this poem a few days ago when i was looking down at people strolling on the streets from the roof of my office during the lunch break. There were all sorts of people, some busy with their schedules, some taking a break and spending some private time together with their loved ones by walking or sitting at the side. So here I was on top of the roof looking down on people happily walking around (or at least wearing fake smiles) and a distinct couple caught my eye. Her man was on the right and tried to hold her hand but she holding her smartphone on her right made it awkward for him to hold her hand. The strange thing was, despite his attempt at holding her occupied hand, she didn’t switch the near-worthless accessory… The last thing I noticed before I lost sight of them was that, ‘the guy retracted his hand after that awkward moment…


Being single and emotionally imbalanced at the moment it was quite harsh for me even as an onlooker, hence I wrote this piece. Hope you like it
