Love Wins

Dr. O. P. Arora


He was in his frame
guarding the bridge main.
Night was dark, no moon
his one shot, make way soon
give him Vir Chakra by noon…
His finger on the trigger
the breeze brought waft of the mint
mesmerized, he thought of her
arms of love, her lips’ quiver
her love won him over…
He abandoned the kill
got lost in the thrill…
