Standing on the narrow lane,
I see a house standing alone.
No life, no joy playing there.
Only a gloomy shadow dancing out.
Whose house was that ?
Was is all alone or any life living there ?
Sometimes I see a light flickering.
In a second or two it fades away.
Affecting me to the core.
I sit on the steps of my house and keep staring.
Wondering what might have befallen ?
Why did the house looked so sad and bereaved .
Was it cursed or just forlorn.
I kept wondering often almost every night.
Even now when I pass by those lanes,
I lift my eyes and stare.
Wondering where has it's inmates gone by.
Abandoning the house on it's fate to flare
