“The Unheard Prayers- II”

A lonely summer evening with the sun shining bright,
He watched the city’s lushness from the man built concrete heights.

The wind blew hard in his face, whistling in his ears,
Bringing back his senses from the warp of memories and unshed tears.

He watched his train derail and come to a muzzling halt,
Reminding that names and stars can sometimes be at fault.

The marriage of a girl who once meant his life,
Now boarding another train as another man’s wife.

The vows were exchanged, promising each other for years,
His prayers unheard and deaf to god’s ears.

He watched the train leave and go far away,
Knowing it will be gone and never come again.
