It’s pitch black outside
And he’s yet to return
She’s waited and waited and gone back inside
It’s starting to make her heart burn.
It’s silent in the house
It was always just those two
She wears her prettiest silk blouse
The one that was used for occasions few.
She sits on the couch
And gets under a woollen throw
Taking the letter out from her pouch
And reading how their love did grow.
She had gone over this again and again.
As if preparing for an exam that never came.
This whole relationship was becoming a cheap bargain.
Their long lost love was finding someone to blame.
It was dawn and the birds were awake..
She was fast asleep with his first letter in hand
And he was on the door step..for God’s sake..
This anniversary celebration was definitely going to be grand.
He knocked on the door with a heart full of fear..
She got up startled and ran to the sound..
As soon as their eyes met, she unconsciously dropped a tear,
It wasn’t out of love but the realization of being bound.
Opening the door fully to let him in,
She welcomed him to enjoy his stay
He was surprised with her strange grin..
She started gladly walking away..
He looked aghast and asked where are you going
She said I’m going to live my life
He said but can’t you see the winds are crazy blowing..
She threw away the pouch on the porch and said I quit being your wife.
