Love And Separation

Love And Separation long poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

It is believed marriages are made in heaven
If it breaks then for sure it is planned in hell

He was a persona of poise and dignity
She was an epitome of grace and beauty

It was a chance encounter that made them
come across face to face
The two stood silent & stared at each other
While totally forgetting one another

He was drawn to her by her enchanting beauty
And she was bowled over at his dignified stature

The initial attraction to each other
Culminated in the marriage to one other

Life was a heavenly abode for this young couple
With neither of them telling NO to each other

The love between the two souls ended up
In the birth of a little sweet chubby Doll

The extent of Joy and Ecstasy the couple
Felt had reached the skies and beyond

The mother in her was totally occupied
With taking care of the child day in & out

The frequent breast feeding & Nappy changing
The unscheduled waking up of the child during the nights
All made her looks & personality change drastically

She was not the same young gracious beauty
She was now a matured and a little bulky

The less attention by her and less attraction
towards her All made Him lose much of his romantic instinct

With the increase of family responsibility and
Work pressure in his office mounting he was
Bit unhappy and worried & was feeling very lonely

He was irritated with her for giving less attention
They agreed to disagree on every issue and the
Rosy life they were earlier leading was gradually
Turning into thorny one with extent of even
reigning Blows on each other at the slightest opportune

With the domestic life in turmoil He took refuge in
Drinking and smoking neglecting his work and family
With little money in hand he could hardly take care of his child

With their married life now lay in shambles
She approached the court to seek Divorce,

Once revered husband,she now sought
monthly alimony from him for maintaining herself and the child

The Court after deliberation granted Divorce

Thus ended the married life of the couple who
Were once so madly in love and now foolishly
got separated all due to his mindset that the life was only
ROSES devoid of Thorns

Dear Ramapriya ji
a wonderful poem on “love” and then separation………..it is painful to observe how a loving couple had to seek courts decision and the heavenly relationship ends in divorce……very very painful…….i personally feel marriage is an institution …where both the partners have to play their role individually and jointly to make it a success…..if the marriage fails then I am sorry to say both the partners are equally to be blamed, the woman for neglecting her husband while taking care of her child and also the husband who took to drinking and bad habits for being neglected……
a wonderful poem on the hard facts of todays life….i pray and wish no marriage comes to ending in divorce……a very painful separation …..written in your own unique style

True love is something so elusive. True love between two people is the most precious of gifts, Falling in love is not just an expression. Love is a powerful force that cannot be dissuaded. Love requires a lot of faith.

She was a traveling soul. The galaxy resting above her nose. I’d sit & stare. Wondering where the stars would go next. Both young & in love I let go. Tracing together swirls of color. The planets all together aligned.

Please take my hand, for I am blind. I’ve lost my path and my sense of touch. I’ve fallen, for my hands and feet are behind. Please let me hear, for all is in a hush. My wrist and ankles
