A Letter To My Ex - Poem by Aimanu Begum

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
market index of companies listed on Bombay Stock Exchange, India.)

    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
