Curled in her bed with a book on her side..
She plays with her locks, lost in deep thoughts..
She had fallen in love and her life eversince had been a joyride..
Never did she contemplate tomorrow, engrossed in fun of all sorts..
The train of thoughts cease to come to a halt..
Making her reminisce the day they tied the nuptial knot..
They had held each other's hands and walked every step in unison..
Those holy promises and the holy fire were a mark of benison..
He had said," I vow to take care of her, pamper her, fulfil her needs..
Trace her footsteps and be along forever, protect her in my embrace..
I'll never embarass her with harangue, I'll keep her happy forever!"
Inside, she grinned sheepishly, and said a virtual 'Amen!'
Her emotions outwitting her control, a tear rolled down her cheek..
Another memory came in foreground while the emotional outburst had reached its peak..
The day she revealed that she was in a family way..
His happiness knew no bounds, he held her like a kid and that was her besttt day..
All of a sudden, a harsh reality struck her like a bolt from the skies..
Whatever the memories be, the outcome of their test on the plateau of love was not nice..
Though sanguine in true sense, she was slowly and steadily losing her sanity..
She had lost support from all sides and her situation demonstrated pity..
She stands up with her long locks on one side and walks in front of the mirror..
With eyes swelled with anger, a questioning look on her face, answers now clearer..
Weren't those promises, those amorous talks nothing but moonshine..
Fighting her tears, she looks at her tresses and picks up a comb..
She's the mother who carries the burden of a baby daughter in her womb..
