#Poetry. Harmony, or a marriage gone stale? What do you make of this kind of humdrum existence that the poet describes succinctly, in such few words?
I watch him getting ready
Calm and collected
Choosing non-confrontational white
I choose non-confrontational breakfast routine
We bury our heads in respective news rags
Butter the burnt toast
Check the pings
The coffee scalds
Flavors left unsavored
He makes the first move
A dry peck on the forehead
A desultory ‘see you soon’
I exhale a relief
Mull my escape options
Settle for the habitual domestic drone
But shed a sorry tear
At the terrible descent
From a soulmate to a teammate
A dead romance
A heart gone astray
A marriage of convenience
These sounds of silence
Overpowering and shrill
Being brave is brutal
Waking up to walk tall
Or to even walk away
Just an abandoned dream!
