A Very Sad Letter - Poem by Soma Mukherjee

Dear mirror on the wall,

It's with a heavy heart
I today write you this letter,
I would have stalled this if I had any hope
that things would get better.

I still remember the day I bought you here,
you were sparkling and just fine.
Ofcourse I would have loved to have a little more
but I thought you would improve like wine.

Sadly though that was not to be and
you had nothing more to offer.
Not that you made any false promises but I thought
I can persuade you, being a good goffer

Agreed age has not being on my side and
times have been cruel too,
But to show me in bad light, all fat and wrinkled
is that what partners do?

They say we are as old as
our partners make us feel,
And all you have done is to highlight my flaws
rather than conceal.

So I am switching to a new sparkling mirror
which has some amazing additional features,
This new one makes automatic changes
and doesn't nag me, you know how much I hate preachers.

We have been together for years now
do not think I will leave you all alone,
I have found some new homes ready to take you in
will give you details over the phone.

And call me sensitive and emotional
I could not bring my self to see your sad face,
I will how ever wish you the best and hope
all legal matters be resolved at a fast pace.

Thanking you
Mr. Knight in shining armour

P.S- Please sign the papers attached and send it to me by tomorrow,
There is no need to prolonge this matter for it will only bring more sorrow.
