When It's Over Just Bow!

When the fantasy had ended,

Horrors turned true, Promises were false,

Except an end there was no solution,

Never had she imagined, he would be such a crook.

In the tenure of a beautiful lie,

There were a thousand dreams,

Soaring high, until it all crashed down.

Oh, what a disgusting sight that was,

Viewing her own husband with a woman stranger,

Every moment flashed in her eyes forever, the

Rascal still flaunts his ego!

Jewels and Riches he gifted were burnt, for

Unfaithfulness still lingered,

Says he, “Please forgive me, I love you so..”

That’s supposed to make her feel better?

“Better off alone than live with you, cheat!

Over it is, it was never meant to be,

What a show! Go on and take a bow…” Said she.

P.S. This is my try at the same acrostic which Leo has posted on his blog. It's just a try, and as soon as I heard the title the only song that played in my mind was Rihanna - Take A Bow. So I built the poem around it!

Manjari Singh said...

very good. Actually i am not that much into poetry but this was so simple mujhe bhi samajh aa gayi. lol

Brosreview said...

Umm, I reckon you intended this to be more prose-like than poetry. I mean, I see a few lines here to be poetic whereas a few to being prose-like.

Having written that, I like the way you've expressed this quite neatly, barren of any analogies. Although that very factor makes it quite clich├ęd, I felt it as I like the monologue/dialogue style implemented.

Keep writing!!!

PS: It also qualifies to being a voice-over for any film.

Satans Darling™ said...

Thank you :D I love the way you analyze everything!
