Poem: When you are not around

By: Aruna Subramanian

I stay awake and
silence the sounds around
awaiting your call
Or a single text..
I search your timeline
for any updates..
I scroll my newsfeed
Looking for your likes
In any of the posts..
I check and recheck
Your last seen time
For every second..
Retracing your web-prints
I try to solace my heart
Burdened by the single tick mark
Of my last sent message …
