A smile, a wave and goodbyes were exchanged She said she would try to remember the good times After the misery they had endured He replied he would seek the silence of the night It had been an amicable parting They had loved each other deeply He thought they were a good match She felt in her heart this was the real thing But as luck would have it Up jumped the devil when they began living together Their personalities clashed fiercely Soon, they realized it would come to no good She was intransigent in her views And his ego could not stand her arrogance Of course, his ego was no child that could be tamed Nor his brusque manner tolerated They said that if their union was made in heaven It could very well have been forged in hell too They didn’t yell too much at each other But the animosity was there It had reached the point of no return After a short while they stopped touching Separation was the only solution A sweet apple turned sour, an expectation rancid Love comes seldom Hatreds become frequent After a while, affection became difficult Love needs affection not discord It behooves the lovelorn to think maturely Is there is compatibility, sincerity, honesty and understanding of each others' feelings? Are you ready to let it all die in one giant scream of silence? Love consists of many intrinsic small things Like comprehending that obstinacy unnerves even the sacred, Tolerance is next to saintliness And true love is not so easy to achieve
