LOVE SANS COMMITMENT

Written by: Suresh Iyer

When we met that day, we were strangers at bay
Seeking a companion, my eyes met yours with gay
An unwritten bond enveloped you and me
Destined to be life partner everyday
 
Days and months and years passed
Our relationship changed tracks by the way
My love demanded sex, yours sought commitment
Life seemed a chore, none of us had a say
 
Love borne out of compulsion, we became partners at bay
Our love was blind, exposed day by day
Years down the line, my eyes have opened
Only to realize you say to my love “nay”
 
Is it too late! – am afraid you shall never
Meet my eyes with love and gay
Sitting alone with lost hope to win back your commitment
Come back O Dear’, I wait for that day
