Delayed Love

Overpowering silence survived the chaos

Feeble stirrings disguised their feelings before dawn

Waking up lonely and empty while greeted by mundane mornings

It was the wickedness of time that restricted any passage

Emotions stopped reminiscing the missed opportunities

Some paths never meet but come closer at a bend

Different travellers determined to reach a destination

Wary looks and hurried greetings are escape routes

Delayed aches still churn the soul with known stirrings
