The Protagonist - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Everybody suspects him a peeping tom
who used to trespass in the nunnery.
A handsome middle aged in ragged
and a very peevish personality.
I was bit inquisitive and had a chat with him.
He is an atheist it seems
and once a free lance writer
who loved a Presbyterian teacher
known to him since his childhood days.
All of a sudden she has disappeared
and somebody informed him
that she has converted to a nun.
He still search his fiancee in every nunnery of the world?
With his sobs he told me
who knows that she must have eloped
with the God?
