This poem was based on 'The Reader' (For those of you who have seen it and remember the characters played by Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes). For those who have not seen the movie/do not remember the intensity of the characters, take it just as any other poem.
It bothered him that he had not achieved his dream.
It bothered her that she had been in a delusion the whole while.
A delusion of the love that he seemed to have offered.
Of the vows he pretended to take up.
Of the facade of a happy life together.
Of the umpteen memories,now too distant.
The fading away of once cherished times from her mind spoke for themselves.
She knew that she had been defeated.
All her life,she had taken everything that had come her way.
And now,it would all end.
By any means pursued,she would detatch herself completely,
The last thing she had to do.
