Love Expired – A comedy poem

He took her to his favourite spot

The day was bright, the sun was hot,

She knew he liked to walk a lot

But she was getting tired.


They reached the zenith of the peak

It seemed she’d trekked for about a week,

And now the sweat streamed down her cheek

The walk was not what she’d desired.


Breathtaking views greeted her eye

velvet green forests, azure blue sky

but still, she turned and asked him why

“Why drag me up here?” she inquired.


Then he realised his big mistake,

The gaffe he’d made and what was at stake,

He should have honeymooned by a lake

or on a yacht, he could have hired.

Rather than this mountain that he admired.

And so like, life, their love expired.
