A Love Story Narration In Verse
It is true
We have never met
She is very beautiful and lovely (Like a fusion of Venus and Aphrodite)!
Thousands of kilometers keeps us apart
Yet a few steps in our fantasies will take us to each other’s anxious arms…
If you listen carefully
If you enter our different thoughts
You will hear the rhythm of our heartbeats…
We both have our dreams
She wants to see the Eiffel in Paris
I want to see the Taj Mahal in Agra
We both have plans of that first day
She is typically Indian and shy…
I am typically Nigerian and reckless…
I want to ravish her with all sorts of imagined romance…
She wants to sing and dance for me, no touching…
We are in love
How so true…
How long will it last and to what end?
She promised to love me for as long as she lives
How so sweet…
I want to marry and live forever with her
So much for imaginations…
THE CASTE SYSTEM
A civilised society
An advanced nation
What is the beauty of arranged matrimonies?
This could cause us untold sorrows
I am of a different background
A different origin…
What will be of us?
Love is said to be all!!
Our fates is in the hands of the gods
If customs and traditions are able to overpower their scheme
Then like Romeo and Juliet
Cupid will take us to Avalon
And in eternity shall our love be consummated!!!
