990: Beautiful Mind, Unmatched Pretensions - Poem by Amit Biswas

I had not met an intelligent woman like you before,
For all I know, you have a beautiful mind for sure,
I wanted it to remain active and never get dumb,
That’s why negated alcohol which makes it numb,

Unfortunate you are, never got love,
Did get a few things that are associated though,
Thereby more confused as to what love meant,
When you did get love, wrongly attempted to match,
Love with associated things that were in your catch,
The mismatch turned you against love,

You were intelligent and thereby proud,
Hence failed to distinguish love from the crowd,
Selfish you were about your career,
So much so, even your child you did not spare,

In your chaos you never knew whose words to count,
Your claim of love sounds so funny,
Unmatched actions make your words so hollow,
You never valued actions of compliance of others,
Thereby demanded personal space for your whims,
Your unshakable faith in destiny appears only convenience,

Unworthy you proved by your intensions,
Wanted to hide truth, only pretensions,
Intelligent you were, possessed a beautiful mind,
The ugly part I only know, being one of its kind.
