Two Men Were Freed From Their Burdens - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

I found the rust
clotted tears in an old padlock.
A man was in the cell
for his life imprisonment.
Jailor opened the padlock
let the prisoner to be free.
And I saw his teary eyes
want to speak something.
Out of his sobs
I caught few words.
His wife has eloped
With his Jailor friend.
