The Mysterious Night
It was getting dark
I was moving towards my home,
But suddenly I saw a girl sitting on the bench
She was reading a book with her head down
Looking at her I felt something was wrong
When I went towards her, she just moved on.
I followed her even in the heavy rain
She saw me once
But I acted like I was doing nothing there
Looking at her I felt she was crying the whole day
But after she saw me once again she just ran away
Even though I followed her, but couldn't find her again
But the amazing thing was that when I was in front of my house.
After a long time I realized that
The mysterious girl was me in past few years back
Crying for someone who didn't care
But now I have moved on,
I don't want to bring those memories back again
Want to see a bright future ahead, not staying in the darkness of yesterday.
