Dell and Dale
Two rivulets flow side by side
Emerging from the same womb
Having grown in the same milieus
With dreams of devotedness,
With promises of holding together
Singing the song of love for others
Dell and Dale flowed on and on
Oblivious of boulders ahead.
The tide of time tossed them around
One found the valley, deep and sound
Found happiness, even disseminated it.
The other found mountains high and mighty
Injudicious track changed all reflections
The flow was warped, adrift, crooked
Promises broke, dreams grew dreary
Slowly it grew shallow, self-centered.
So Dale lost identity,
The watery grave could not be traced
Barren land, choked throats were insignificant.
When love wanes, well- wishers are kicked off.
Incognito efforts fail miserably
The façade soon stands exposed.
