The Lady Next Door!!

The Lady Next Door!!

The pitfalls of working as a crime reporter,

Often required me to travel, in pursuit of adventure,

At best I would have stayed in a place for a year,

When it was time, I bid farewell without a tear.


I was happy and content with bachelorhood,

Till I landed up in my present neighbourhood,

My whole world suddenly turned upside down,

The reason? A lady, unlike any, I met downtown.


Tall and attractive she walked with a rhythmic gait,

Brushing off the strands falling on her lovely face,

Her pleasant personality added to her elegance and grace,

I was drawn to her, like a magnet sucked from its case.


Time after time, of her, I could only catch a glance,

In thin air she would vanish, each time I advanced,

Then one day my heart skipped a mighty beat,

I stepped out on the porch, I was in for a visual treat!


There she was!! Standing right next to my abode!

She was my neighbour, she lived next door!

Thereafter I looked for reasons to stay back at home,

The centre of my world, she had now become.


Everything about her was shrouded in mystery,

That made me more curious, I pursued her resolutely,

I knocked at her door when I couldn't stand the distance,

The knob turned, I was greeted by an eerie silence.


True to her nature, once again, she had disappeared,

I stood pondering when I saw her climbing up the stairs,

It was now or never, this was my only chance,

I followed her blindly, I was a man in a trance.


The boards were creaky, the rooms shabby, unkempt,

Not enough to deter me, I was bent upon unlocking her secret,

Her fragrance churned my senses, her steady breath I could hear,

Though she was not visible, of her presence I was so damn sure.


Then I saw a life like picture, of her, hanging on the wall,

It was so real, she was truly dancing at the ball,

I stood admiring her, couldn't take my eyes off her face,

Then I heard the whispers, she was calling out my name!


On the table below I saw a tattered, old, newspaper,

An highlighted article, which displayed her lovely picture,

It said, "You are my life, I will always love you my dear,

Rest in peace my darling, till I join you there".
