He walked over to her cubicle on a hunch.
He had been right, she was out to lunch.
He squinted at the name tag and memorized her name.
To him, the word Kavita would never again mean the same.
He saw her everyday but he never spoke.
He adjusted his chair to peer till the lever broke.
He fixed his meetings to stay back late
For her shift was long and ended at eight.
She was too pretty and he was too shy,
Things stayed the same as the days went by.
Till one day, as he walked by her seat,
He saw her on his Facebook and his heart skipped a beat.
She came over that day and asked him out.
He knew they’d be married, beyond doubt.
They soon dreamed of perfection, of forever having a ball.
Of ending up in therapy; dog, kids, and all.
