Visalakshi iv


Visalakshi is under dialysis.
I heard and enquired over phone.
She displayed no attachment.

Her son family met a car accident.
I heard and condoled over phone.
She displayed no attachment.

After her husband’s death in a car accident,
When I condoled to her over phone
She displayed disinterest.

It is written on the wall
That she is not inclined to resurrect
Our love aborted fifty five years ago.

Her virtue is commendable.
My lingering love is rejected.
I am proud I’d loved such a woman.
