I confronted her,
asking about the promises,
the gorgeous views of the waning moon,
that we agreed to hold our hands,
to stay forever in blithe,

I accosted her,
for the moments we shared,
when we promised
the world of togetherness
and some divine mind share

I remained agog,
thinking how time could change hearts,
the nest of our love,
how suddenly it can be doomed to oblivion
and remained lost

Then she spoke,
with a timid voice,
half convinced and half with an ardent force,
and the excuse she portrayed gave all the answers
for she was the master of all presumed alibi

    Still she rested on her natural, Go-To when she is exposed, Alibi.
