Oops! Shoes Doesn’t Fit Her!


He loved one
Married next one
His parents were the happy ones.
He cheated everyone one.

His bride quiet different one.
Couldn't fit in shoe of his sweet heart one.
His sweetheart had a shoe slim fit one.
But his wife was just opposite one.
Now to fit her in his beloveds shoe
He crushed her with words
Shoe bites hurt her.
But forced her to swallow some diet made by self
Finally with each hurtful words
Surely made her so slim that the shoe
Turned out be loose one.
He changed the complete diet chart.
Her weight doubled.
Now he tuned diet chart again
Now slim fit she is.
But still she didn’t fit in that shoe.
This went on many years.

He met his beloved years later
She had put on good weight
And looked happy and different too.

Now again he came back home, he felt
His wife looked more beautiful than his beloved.
Now with a sweet smile
He said I regret for all those words
You lived the way I wanted
Now here after I will live the way you wanted!

She felt headlong in shoe bites
But now started loving the one who relieved her from such bites.

Darling if you don’t mind
I want to go to my love?
Fuming husband asked in boiling anger
Who the hell is he, more fit than me?
Wife in a pleasant voice said
the shopkeeper is the one
where you used to take me to buy fit shoes for me.
Oh! that guy who is as good as mosquito
Will fly away with just one blow of breeze.

Darling I am ready to fly with him...
LOL...

    The person in question did not know what he really wanted and thus he tries to fit his wife into his beloved shoes. A nice and serious poem with great humour. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
