Whodunnit? - Poem by Mandira Mitra

Love, remember when
As wanton love’s refrain
We vowed to me and you
To round off with, “I Do”.
Thus safely enclosed
In desires we dozed
Future unwary we two _
Until (was it me or was it you?)
We forgot to renew
Our terms and make them new.
That was the END.
HE called off our play enforced
And declared the game as closed.
Tell me who had the first fright
Tell me who first moved out of sight
Converted “I do” s to “may” or “might”
Tell me who switched off the moon tonight?
