Lust is only flame


Lust is a must to start with.
Trust is a must to last with.
Then sustains marital interest.
Trustless lust wrecks the boat.
Lust-less trust floats the boat.
Both together make it sail.
A wife merits by her loyalty
And husband by his sincerity
As the family is the bed of trust,
More than a bed of roses.

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
