A Glimpse of Another Life

Saahithya Gutta, Arts & Entertainment Editor, Features Editor, Co-Lead of Social Media

You told me my eyes

Were the color of your go-to coffee order

At your favorite café.

So I said

Your eyes reminded me of stormy skies,

My favorite weather. 

We shared merely a moment 

And within it a lifetime. 

I could see us in rocking chairs 

When I said goodbye. 

To the stranger in the bookstore,

Maybe we weren’t meant to be 

Maybe we were

But together,

Our home was beautiful 

And our lives were full.
