A Platonic Love

When we first met each other
As two strangers saying hello,
Took a little time to know
And then came very close.

Hand in hand, side by side
We were very close,
Lips in lips, hugging each
Tightly we held both.

So excited so delighted
We felt the heaven in our hand.
We two were feeling so good
Like made for each other we felt.

One stupid came, he said -o' my friend
How you find the love'.
I replied him - it's unique
So divine is this platonic love.

But one evening along the beach
I found my love there
Walking with hand in hand -
With another man there.

That stupid came, and said 'my friend-
Now, how you find your love'
I replied, groaning within -can't you see
She is a bitch and do hell with your love.

Stupid said - oh' my dear -
Once I also was a lover here,
But after getting a slap like you
As a stupid only, I have been sitting here.

Come on friend - sit down dear
At last, I got one more stupid here.
Don't worry and don't feel sorry
Wait and see -
How many more stupids will be joining us here

    Good one, unique style, Amitava. Yes, this does happen way more often than

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
