The Moment of Arrival - Manushya Puthiran

“Shall I come tomorrow?”
She said.

Then she breathed
“No, I would come
This evening itself”

Unable to hold herself anymore
She uttered unsteadily
“Shall I come right now?”
“Come earlier than that
Earlier than earlier can be
If only you could
start right now
and arrive at yesterday
all my sorrows would cease to exist”
I said.
