But why it should come to this!

Bjorn's given words:
misalliance - An unsuitable alliance, especially in marriage.
brouhaha - turmoil or clamor; uproar; hullabaloo.
rook - a swindler or cheat, esp one who cheats at cards
percolate - to drain or seep through a porous material or filter.
gimbal - . A rigid frame or ring in which an object is supported by pivots.
partake - to take or have a part or share; participate:
repast -  a meal or the food provided at a meal:

A misalliance but only recently
No brouhaha to talk of, nothing
It had been bliss no holds barred
It had been loving, heavenly
To say the least
Love sustained right from high school
But why?
Not why it happened
But why it should all come to this!

He was not rookish in his dealings
She provided repast at appointed times
Complete with percolated coffee
Mandatory at meal-times
They did partake in joint activities
Even shared hobbies
Stamp collecting of all things
Could only be described as ideal
A couple meant for each other

The gimbal toppled
The goodness of hot coffee
Splashed all over him
When it happened
He was more shocked than angry

Things changed from then on
The equilibrium shifted
How long would it linger?

  2. The shock of it can be a blow, but we can decide how long we let it linger
