Yes or No

I was flattered by the letter
                      Mailed by this august sister
I was lured by those beautiful flowers
                     She sent to me in summer

Soon I welcomed her idea 
Of renting a new apartment
I blindly fall in love
Within a sinister engagement

I loved her when she grin
May be that's not a spell
I loved her to her toes
The meaning, I couldn't tell

She succeeded luring me far
And we both lived as one
Soon I noticed something
Every night she loved being alone

I was still madly in love
And so I couldn't say no
For love I reminded myself
Is about Yes or No

Many months of loneliness night
In the mood still alone
Until the next day we should see
And she would stand on her own.

And I would ask if she enjoyed her night
And she would tell me she did
And I would ask what about this night
And she would say is yours indeed

Three years of tolerance
No 'Mummy' or 'daddy' called
Of course, it was the same
When no land was ever tilled

Her beauty upon my face
A charm that drew me near
But she failed me when she resisted it
For more than three years

Families are there at home but I submitted to her brow
And we eloped far away from our roots
Now we landed north for more than a three
And no harvest since seeds she denied us to root
                     I can't face it any more
There is a need to tour
                     If she won't tell me her past
Then I have to act fast
                     I have to seize the day
And strategize a new way
                     Only her utterances will sway
What will be the next day
