the reward

where did all the words suddenly go

I can relate your reply in just yes or no

we had a big array of thoughts bartered

the endless strings of words exchanged

the impressions on keyboard vanished

the mouth dried, the tongue desiccated

the nights over brimming with radiance

the time running fast to its brilliance

and then suddenly there was this thud

feelings battered, the dreams shattered

only to find myself all alone, crestfallen

the heart obliterated, the eyes swollen

now I wonder in a state of painfulness

is this the reward for my responsiveness
