Look into my eyes when you talk to me 
Keep your phone away, so will I 
Let't talk about things that matter for a change 
Not just the bills to be paid or the outstanding EMI 

Let's go on an impromptu trip 
For old time's sake, couple of clothes and faith
And let's escape reality 
Let's forget there are chores to be done 

And travel to a place where the earth meets the sky
Where the sea has endless waves sweeping us away 
And stay in a cosy place that has no wi-fi 
At night we will read by the fireplace 

Listen to all those albums that we have 
But have been too busy to hear all this while
Those long hikes that we thought we outgrew 
Can we try it one more time?

Take a plunge and try doing things
We have been putting off for a long time 
Ice-cream cones at midnight 
Books that have been piling on our shelves

Try not to think too much 
And let's do this one last time
For you, for me, for us
For what we once were...


Linking this post to the A to Z Challenge.

  1. The harsh modern reality is well depicted but the last verse made me feel that all is still not lost and brought a smile on my face. Beautiful poem.

  4. We are so busy with our lives or say our tech savvy lives that we hardly find the time to sit back and relax and have a face to face discussion. Lovely poem Aathira :)

    1. Oh yes. A face to face conversation seems to be so rare these days. It seems to be underrated as people prefer to communicate over texts and messages! Thanks, Reema :)

  6. Truly depicting the harsh realities of modern times and mechanical lives ! Sweet, simple yet appealing because of its link with that harassed self within all of us. Very soothing even to think of an Escape Holiday, like the one Aathira describes so movingly !

  7. You got me in the second line. It is hard to get love or attention in this fast robotic world. The woods continue to be lovely dark and deep, but there is noone to stop and see.
