The Straight's Rejection
The goddamn questions of her
Irritates me today,
Being sarcastic in every word she spits out,
Her attention seeks forgiveness, after those fierce fights.
When I adopted a baby girl to fill the voids.
My love for my wife, started vanishing away
She feels discarded, thinking of someone else with me on my way.
Her anguished behavior towards our daughter was but obvious,
Cause she wanted to be the biological mother of the solitaire I acquire.
I catch him walking on the same path each day,
Eyes on the ground, stealing the glances away.
I doubt myself on being straight, this man causes me wonder, The law of nature turning the ways.
His pink crisp shirt tugged in right and jet black trouser making him elite.
My heart skips a beat, A little memory of my wife,
I leave, abandoned on the way.
Those limited meetings, now changing the course,
Spending most of my time with him alone.
The hint of having an affair with someone, my wife could sense now but, knowing the mystery of dating a man would surely cause vexation.
Her eyes appear swollen, her body becoming leaner,
Gathering some strength each night to fight with me for my affair.
The diminishing emotions, the lost love, my body aches and heart despair.
Finally, after a great deal of controversial acts,
I shifted to an apartment, with the man she hates.
My daughter innocently asks "Dad, now whom should I call my mommy?" And I calmly reply to her, your daydda is your new momma.
She gets confused to see two men, loving and living together,
Because nature allows but society keeps the barrier.
And I recite her a story each night, In which Cinderella is still in love with her prince
But gets replaced by a handsome prince for her husband this time.
- Prithvi Gulati
Even the ecstasy was jealous..
For how he felt,
When he touched him for the first time..
Even the passion wasn't that passionate..
as they both were,
When his fingers moved through his hair..
Even the love was in love with him..
for in his arms,
He gave a meaning to love after an era...!!
