A - Another Tale To Tell


PC : Unsplash

So, how did this tale begin
Was it with that cliched
Once upon a time
That made you child-like dreamy eyed
Believing in that ever so perfect 
Happily everafter of an end
Or was it the not so much 
Of a perfect fairy-tale beginning or end
Is what made you hear
Or did it just capture your attention 
With one of those hooks on life!
Or was it the repertoire of questions
That compelled your glance 
To pause and give it a read
Perhaps, this too being 
Yet another imagery
Which evoked once again
Those foregone emotions
Making you graze over 
The moments that were
A part of another anecdote
As rhetoric as this one
And possibly as mundane 
Yet, as stirring 
Even if it were 
Just another 
Of  those tales to tell
Of mine, of yours
Of that every someone
Somewhere else
