Peter Pan
Author: Anjali Thapa


The Lil' Mermaid threw a pebble,
Into the water,
Deep, untroubled.
What did she get?
Ripples that smiled at her,
Ripples that sparkled for her,
Millions and millions of her,
Angels that sang
Just for her.
I threw a pebble,
Into the water
No ripples, no songs
Calm, spooky as it was.
"No,not a gurl agin'!" cried he
On the rocks,
Brutally handsome,
Dangerously free,
Always eighteen,
Peter Pan with his team.
Doesn't he miss anybody?
Doesn't he love ?
I shrug my shoulders.
Well, fairy tales,
I've had enough already, haven't I ?

------- Author's Notes -------

Dedicated to that soul who is alone even in a crowd and even amidst merry-making
