Unmarried - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

Unmarried; when we kissed; we felt the waves of untamed passion rise to
the
ultimate crescendo of fulfillment; whilst when after Marriage; we felt
it to
be just routinely boring ritual to be inevitably done; just to
spuriously
appease each other,
Unmarried; when we listened to each other; our eyes interlocked for
hours
immemorial as we became oblivious to every other sound in the
atmosphere;
whilst after Marriage; the words seemed to irately pound like a billion
unwashed boulders; upon the extremely tempestuous chords of our
eardrums,
Unmarried; when we philandered together; we almost seemed to
unanimously
admire and appreciate each natural creation of the Lord Almighty;
whilst
after Marriage; we sat taut and haughty in stony silence; even as the
most
majestically virile sceneries and greeneries passed by,
Unmarried; when we confronted any problem; both of us earnestly put in
our
the last droplet of our sweat to emerge unitedly victorious; whilst
when
after Marriage; each of us left it wholesomely on the other to get out
of
the inexplicable disaster,
Unmarried; when we sipped wine; we cheered a toast umpteenth number of
times
in the sensuous wilderness of the night; whilst after Marriage; each of
us
chimed our glasses just once for the sake of the sanctimonious society;
and
that too with profound abhorrence lingering in our eyes; and time and
again
casting sneering glances at the bottle price,
Unmarried; when we slept; we were aware and fondly traced even the
tiniest
creak of our bodies with our uninhibitedly wandering fingers; whilst
after
marriage we indifferently slept poles apart; thunderously snoring till
eternity; even as either one of us was being crucified by the swords of
diabolical hell,
Unmarried; when we sat to eat supper; each one of us altruistically
waited
for marathon moments before the other devoured to his/her hearts
content;
whilst after marriage both of us made a barbarous beeline for the
singleton
dish; at times ending with raw gashes of unsavory blood; on our
profusely
scratched hands and face,
Unmarried; when we wrote each others names; we felt the most
pricelessly
blessed organisms alive perpetually possessing each other in our
hearts;
whilst after marriage we never disclosed it to anyone that we even had
a
lifepartner; specially if it was someone of the opposite sex,
Unmarried; when we swam in the choppy ocean; even the most
infinitesimal
vein of our body was so perennially entwined that it was impossible to
separate us even in the fiercest of storm; whilst after marriage we
deliberately used each others heads as a lifeboat; drowning the other
in our
attempt to stay triumphantly afloat and selfishly alive,
Unmarried; when we awoke; the very first thing that we did in the
morning
was to bow down to each other's feet as we found our ultimate liberator
in
each of ourself; whilst after marriage we strangulated each other's
senses
for uncannily waking up early in the morning; and hideously disrupting
the
heavenliness of bountiful sleep,
Unmarried; when we were wounded; we compassionately ran every contour
of our
fervent lips to those parts which hurt till there was not the tiniest
of
pain; whilst after marriage all that we could hedonistically muster;
was
indigenous salt to apply on the agonizingly crimson streams of blood,
Unmarried; when we laughed; it was as if to trace and assimilate even
the
most insouciant bit of ecstasy hidden in our unconscious veins; whilst
after
marriage we invidiously chortled and exploited each other's
idiosyncrasies;
even at the cost of an infinite tears which unstoppably flowed,
Unmarried; when we sketched; all we could capture on our barren
canvases was
every conceivable shade of our passionately exuberant silhouettes;
whilst
after marriage if ever we used our drawing pens; then it was to spew
blood
of intolerance and unfathomable hatred,
Unmarried; when we were lost; we rediscovered and reborn each other in
our
very own unassailably redolent breaths; whilst after marriage we
heartlessly
abandoned each other; leaping at the beams of hope who came searching
us;
and at the first opportunity,
Unmarried; when we sobbed for our loved ones; the innermost realms of
our
souls united for an infinite lifetimes to share our grief and
ameliorate
ourselves to the highest epitome of the Sun; whilst after marriage we
sadistically used each other's tears to bathe; incase the overhead tank
was
empty,
Unmarried; when we created something; we mutually congratulated each
other
till the aisles of endless infinity whether there came or not; the
tiniest
of soul from the outside world; whilst after marriage the same creation
became the ultimate reason in our route to divorce,
Unmarried; when we saw suffering on the streets; we selflessly
extricated
even the last ounce of blood from our veins; endeavoring our best to
serve
humanity; whilst after marriage we greedily amassed our own wealth;
career;
identity and fame; in order to royally exist in separate palaces of
gold
soaked in innocent blood,
Unmarried; when we met after office; we embraced each other with so
much
passion and intensity that the most gigantic of structures and creation
around humbly tumbled to our toes; whilst after marriage we rapaciously
preferred to frequent the prostitutes dwelling to placate our heinous
desires; as well as stay forever away from our robotically boring
faces,

Therefore it is my nimble plea to you O! Omnipresent Lord; to let our
love
forever immortalize into a cloud of unbreakable compassion; to let our
love
forever become the ultimate guiding beacon for every other true lover
born;
and thus for all this to consolidate into a timeless reality; leave us
best
as UNMARRIED.
