Ever-Changing Faith Should We See? [Poetry]

Poetry: Promises once made in love, were broken by the man. A woman is again asked to sacrifice her career and stay in the kitchen.

Romantic love bloating with

forever waiting promises made on

garden benches in Gulmohar tree parks

on sprinkled early mornings and late evenings

coming to an end too soon.

The metal ring beautiful

on those thin light-colored fingers

getting close-knit cover under

Never miss real stories from India's women.

his selected sky-blue shirt

left on white cotton bed sheet

of Hotel Room 301 and continued

for more honey makeovers

and impassioned cries of indulgence.

“No! It’s all pulpy my girl

the best figure, slanting waist, fuller chest

she’s mine

I love her for a lifetime.”

But reality of fake love broke

forever waiting promises made on

garden benches in Gulmohar tree parks

on sprinkled early mornings and late evenings

devastated with a shocking laughter.

“Oh Saba! Why don’t you suspend

all your career-making?

It’s for what?

a woman you are

not a man who needs earnings

sit back at home and try recipes of corn

get me supper now!”

“But you guaranteed support utmost,

love is hollow without it all?”

“Don’t think

and argue much now

it’s all done

why bother now?”

“Things convert

free outside, obsessed within

ever-changing faith

and things we should now see!”
