The End Chapter - Poem by Shreej k.c

I sit down with my morning coffee beside
flipping pages, determined to write an end
chapter to a story I no longer dare to amend.
diffuse storyline, contradictions and plot twisted
muddled, here I sit down to rhyme instead!

The chapter begins with the two strangers
staring deep into each other's eyes
playful as child, they see no otherwise.

Next they appear armoured, ready to fight
she fights the world to conquer herself
he fights himself to conquer the world.

In a moment she becomes her
childhood warrior princess, the Xena
yearns to throw her boomerang
bring him down to the arena
pluck every inch of balding tuft
kick ass the bulging belly soft
just to let him feel how bad she is hurt.

Next she is love - struck teen, helpless
longing for the Prince, searching every verses
life is but a drama, cliché, she rehearses.

In a moment he is the profound lover
most empathetic, ready to share
fair as judge, heart crystal clear

Next he acts a headstrong reign
her hold is to demean
his hold is not to deign.

I lay the base to end chapter
the two elderly on a park bench
sit tracing each other's senile line
recalling how thicks and thins refine
staring deep into each other's eyes
playful as child, they see no otherwise.

Again, with such fleeting characters
I wonder if I should write fiction
to bring the two strangers
to end the chapter
or hit them with real pranger.
I guess these days realities steal and fence
Moreover, fiction needs to make a sense.

Oh! it's exhausting and seems in a way
takes your everything ending the chapter
But the determination, I remember
and then I need to carry on with my day.
