Tea at Jamia

Scrolled down the phone book,
with confusion whom to talk
Thought about going somewhere,
but unable to decide where to walk.

At the bench near  library,
I decided to sit
Buy myself a cup of tea,
and give solitude its sip

Thoughts! Thoughts!

like bubbles
its every sip spark,

felt like descending sun

while witnessing
blue sky fading  to dark

Then inner voice confess-
the difference between
solitude and loneliness,

Happiness can’t survive
if  you live like this for long
your misery!

The category of species
called human being you belong

It will taste better
try to have it with friend
To kill the loneliness
and make it more refreshing
and peaceful at the end.
