The Story Of A Marriage - Poem by Debasish Mishra

When tears true trickle down,
The house resembles a conquered town;
Despite the dazzle, the festive air...
Prepared for the farewell of the lady fair.

The whole world to a standstill comes
And silence prevails amid sound of drums;
Aeons of age will now be confined
Just to memories in the mind!

But behind this pain- this natural act-
The lady's future is tied in tact
With a chosen hand, a merchant of dreams,
For a lifetime of love and bliss, it seems! ! !
