The Graveyard Of Relic Rituals


The institution of marriage does not hold sanctity any more.

His tone scoffed but his voice was gentle
Reminding her to anticipate reality and not be hurt by it

Yet, she persisted,

I hold it sacred, even if no one else does
And till then,
It won’t be relegated to the graveyard of relic rituals.

    Ricercer,
    She may have persisted because it is not easy to build an institution with all of one’s sweat, blood and soul and then just throw it away like yesterday’s newspaper!

    Idea,
    I felt he is looking at the easy way out while she holds herself dear.
    But then at times in this world, it is the easy-runners who win.

    @ Ricercer: Maybe she was stubborn or just plain stupid.

    @ Shreyasi: Or perhaps that was the case.

    Or maybe she was one of those who believed that it takes a lifetime to make but just a moment of madness to break. But once made nothing could be more beautiful.
