Cafe Wanderlust

cafe wanderlust

It stood there, in a middle position

between, what was and what ought to be

A cafe of sorts, a city of dreams

Stated- souls shall come, souls shall leave

 

The menu- highly controversial

Offered everything from misery to laughter,

The deepest fears, overcome

Many battles that no one won

 

Amidst the aroma of life and death,

A table I found reserved for me

It had my name and destiny on it

But the paths to take were many

 

So who shall light the path, yonder

I wondered to myself ..

The Traveller from South Kansas

Or will I sit beneath shelves?

 

The waiter screamed CHOOSE !

He ain’t got all day

So I held him by his collar and whispered in his ears

“This is my choice, please do prepare”

 

What I asked, he did not have

Yet , what I seeked was his hearts solace

So he left to forge in eternal fires, the machinery of my fate.

And In all these years, I never again saw, that jolly infamous gate
