THE OTHER ONE

In another time, another life;

All factors constant and considered,

Both parties on the same wavelength,

Scruples dangling uselessly on the window-sill -

And the Other One conveniently inexistent:

I’ll eat from your hand – a tamed beast, 

Toe the party line from sheer bliss

Brought about by my prying for misadventure,

Utterly mindless of a dark surprise hanging unseen -

As I hug tightly, the mirage of a storybook finale!

 

ALAS! It is now!

Everything is as is and appears thought through:-

And the Other One inconveniently exists.
