"Fell in love when thirteen…"
-she told me.

Open mouth, fallen jaw
-I observed
-remembered my sister
-got married at same age
-I opposed with no use!

I asked her of her age
-she is in late forties
-with same man…
-saw sort of beauty…

-"…socially he was low…"
-she said and was great
-in telling story…
-"…I had to find a way…"

She made up stories
-dropped out of school
-a failure and a shame
-nobody wanted her

But she got what wanted
-the man of her dreams
-turned husband…

"Love is the best ever…"
-she said and smiled wide:
-"…and can last…last for long! "

I could snot sleep well
-love races in my head

"Love? What is...? "
-I question:
"For yogurt, shoes and ties? "

And I laugh! ! !
-with questions…
