then

when we first came to this city.
we were high on love.
and drunk on happiness
for hours we sat in the cafes.
watching the people and cars.
without having to worry about whether we had enough vegetables in the fridge.
or whether the curd had set.
we ate where we want and what we wanted.
without worrying about heart attacks and diabetes and bad knees.
now we fear tablets and fear our bodies breaking down.
if there are no fruits to eat, no salads to make we panic.
we exercise and maintain our physiques.
watch our calories, more protein, less carbs.
in the middle of all that.
we lost the time we had on our hands to while away.
