Honrary Memoir, Shamed Existence

on

 When a toll maintained,

And an untrodden lane

Crossed at a crossroad…

There they met;

A pair;

So unusual, So unknown.

When an embossed silk clad

Toned , cared sculpt,

And a faded cotton draped,

Roughened up bode

Brushed in impact

With each other,

Then they met;

A pair;

So different, So opposed.

When the wisdom of Khusruo,

And the experience of life

Gazed in each others journal,

For a moment too long,

Then they met;

A pair;

So apart, So torn.

When a heart hurt by politics of household,

And a soul burdened by politics of class officials,

Thudded together to sing,

A symphony like sync,

There they fell in love;

A pair;

So challenged, So strong.

Though their appearances were clear…

They weren’t meant to be together!

Though their statures spoke loads…

Of acceptance of expectant mingles!

Yet they were unaware and forlorn,

For the swirl of their irises

Held their gazes from detours,

Then they desired,

To be with other;

A pair;

So innocent, So pure.

Among the hesitance,

And among the curiosities,

There was lying forgotten…

Duties of curtesy,

And Expectations of nobility.

When the lines

Of wealth and servitude,

Blurred into foggy…

Then they strengthened,

To affront the odds of favour;

A pair;

So beautiful, So cursed.

When the hope dared…

To become stronger than fate,

When promises flared…

Inspite of flames of hate,

Then they decided,

To fight towards the end;

A pair;

So hopeful, So naive.

When the enemies,

Recognised a common fiend,

When two branches of politics,

Merged and conjoined in a single vent,

Then they perished,

At the hands of blood and poweress;

A pair;

So pitiful, So dreaded.

When the red stained…

The breadth of grass,

When the swords dropped…

In defeat and victory at last,

When the blood had claimed blood,

And power had claimed slaver,

Then they departed,

Fingers murmuring farewell’s task;

Together at last;

A pair;

So remembered, So reverend!

Gaining in death,

What life denied…

A chance, An honor,

To love, In love

A pair;

So…;

So…;

So… ……………………………………………………………………………….A Pair, In Memoir….!
