We began together

on the same page

with an introduction and

a couplet beginning

an epic romance.

Our past a mere prologue

which seemed to foreshadow

a manuscript to come

filled with great passion

in the classic theme

of you and me

against all odds.

But eventually we fell

out of sync

and I don't even begin

to know where I

closed the last chapter

and left your feelings unread.

That place where you put

a book-marker of tears.

But I am alone

delivering my soliloquy

with all the fervor I own,

and you still can't see

my point of view through

this final sentence you

have imposed on me.

You are taking things

out of context

and I am becoming

a footnote in your

latest short story.

Disbound and ex-libris

as I watch our

epic romance

turning into a

modern tragedy

with nothing to

look forward to

but an anti-climax.

Just another

dummy copy

with nothing left

to say inside.

OUCH,sad but maybe this book is not finished yet?

The pages of life can sometimes go astray,

but each sentence links you back to a happier day,

and when the book is finished, you find,

that all the loneliness has ceased and together you both are



I rate this book as a top seller!!!

All our emotions

is but a trance

and lasts not

for long.

We are as water

our emotions keep us




And that is how water tastes.

Yet we are


the water

without a taste

to our own tastes.

We remain forever

dissolved resolved and even unsolved

And we know our solution.

Sometimes we know

that we are a puzzle

beyond our own ability to solve.

We need some one to solve us out.

And we need some help.

And that someone fails

as we fail..


to solve

much of the other.

But that is not the answer of life.

Life is an emotional question.

Yet let it not be understood

that neither success nor failure

of any human enterprise whatsoever

is the last word.

It is either love

Or forgiveness.

Nothing ever succeeded where love did not go

and no one was more condemned

than the one


The consequence of our actions

never forgive our

freedom to do them

The freedom of a different point of view

is enough

to turn tragedy into indifference...

Sadly that is life.

Sadly that is someone ( with a different point of view)

whom you ever called 'WIFE'
