Poetry

Lottery

Tonight I have him

Close to my heart

Embedded in my dimples

Shining in my eyes

Tomorrow shall be a new day

A lottery, to say

May win, may lose but mostly lose

Lotteries were meant to be lost anyway

But today I put myself completely at stake

“All or none” that’s what I say

Knowing that he would mostly leave

And I would be broken again

But I know if there is any hope

It’s only in this last game

Already lost most.

Tomorrow would be yet another day

When I wait for fate

To roll a dice

And decide my case.

Namita Satija
