Two strangers

A wedding in progress,
two random strangers,
36 common friends,
still no conversation.

When 'hi's and 'hello's
die their certain deaths,
the two strangers
retrace their steps.

Four years later,
they meet in a world,
virtual and open,
unhindered, unnoticed.

Words turn to songs,
emoticons to expressions,
self-deprecation to humour,
and conversations long.

Boredom rears its head,
during that odd pause,
a new thought crouches in
and bludgeons it to death.

"How long will they talk?"
With a sigh, you ask.
Till it rains while the sun shines,
there are rainbows in their hearts.
