Poem 339: Four Times

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Four Times

The first one broke due to

his habit of suppressing-

his career was important, her not,

inside the cage only she was allowed to sing!

The second one was sure to end:

she had a hole in her heart.

He appeared in the scene for property.

Left her during her end for music and art.

The third one cheated him.

He became angry but could do nothing.

The fourth one was a widow, much younger than him.

He died of heart attack years later, fifth chance lost meaning.

He was an unsatisfied soul:

Love and lust to him

were as uncertain as, as undefined as blackholes-

night sky full of day dream!
