Adultery - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

One way it's a great sin
an illegal partnership too.
These sleepwalkers drown in their fantasies
entangle with the string of passion.
and how can they let go?
This longing won't be an end
with a marriage or a separation,
unless they adrift uneasy
on the stream of endless suffering?
