Aimanu Begum

A letter to my Ex

One last word my dear,
I will not ask how you are.
It is already clear
you and I are
not made for each other.

You saw the stars and the sky
in my eye(s) ,
all beautiful and bright
in the soft moonlight
and I laughed with delight.

I followed you like a puppy.
We were so happy
and knew no strife.
Then she came into your life,
a prospective rich wife.

It is now clear
like a bottle of mineral water,
love, to you, is not any star or sky
but sensex soaring high
or the bank notes bringing glitter to your eye(s) .

I will not remind you of your vows
to hold my hand always.
We are now miles apart.
Yet in retrospect
I have no regret.

I do not have any desire
to be another pyre,
a sacrificial goat at the altar
of your lust for money and power.
I am well off without your mercenary love my dear.

(sensex, is a free-float market capitalization-weighted stock

    The materialistic view of in particular is nicely presented.The importance of compatibility, love and emotional attachment is ignored while power, status and money play a vital role in selecting a partner. (Report) Reply
