Radio romance

I was on a public transport
with its radio playing a duo

The bus’ accelerator though,
let me hear only the hero’s solo

Blaring from the road-side radio,
his foray, made him sound like a true hero

The bus’ change in gears,
let me hear his highness’ meek tears

Oh! There is resistance and distance,
Even in radio romance...

Your post took me back in time when I used to ride the bus to work.

Listening to the radio while the bus drove fast through the city's streets had a magical effect on me.

Born to be or Amlagamated with thee?
Prowling in the dark
Snooping and sniffing
Digesting the bits and bytes
Rummaging the intricate network of blogs
For days at an end
Here and there
In yours and others
Yearning for a provoking one
To reveal thy
Until a post like this, flies by.
