Bonds On Paper - Poem by Punit Parikh

Millions of times he confessed
Of his love eternal and pure.
Eloquent words,
Promises made by the stars
But trust leaked and love ended
People called it a divorce
A paper with two signatures
And years of loneliness’

There was a council of men
Dignity clad in suits and ties,
They talked,
About disarmament and peace
Deciding the fate of countries.
A summit and a treaty signed
A piece of paper inscribing peace,
Yet firing continues at enemy lines.

People often talk about love
They proclaim about,
Peace and wisdom too
But these are just fragments
Of broken words tied to a paper
Future, fate, love and laughter
All merge into one,
Bonds signed on a paper.
