The Woman On Platform Number Ten

Still I remember the day when,
I met the woman on platform number 10.

Few years back,in the month of July,
I was at station waiting for my train,
Going to meet a client which on me rely,
It was twenty passed ten,when rain began,

The place was silent except sound of thunders,
Draped in white salwar-kameez with red border,
Came she grabbing attention of me and few vendors,
A mesmerising wet beauty of top order,

She came and sit beside me on bench,
Smiled,greeted and asked my name,
Sweet voice,her style in my heart made a love trench,
Sure was I that she was feeling the same,

First time I don't blame railways for delay.
At around midnight we took something to eat,
and in each other's arms quietly we lay,
A moment no other thing could beat.

But suddenly she stood as train approached and stopped,
Hugged and kissed a man stepped down from the train,
He was her husband! I was still and shocked,
time pass for her was I all emotions were fake and in vain.

Why she did this to me was still a mystery,
Perhaps feeling safe in my company on that deserted place,
Her trust was for me now misery,
Never after that I found her trace,

But it's difficult to forget the day when,
I met the woman on platform number 10.
