Today’s poem is inspired by Botaiku Writing Prompt 558 “Crunch”
Meaning of Crunch is
Crunch (verb) : crush (a hard or brittle foodstuff) with the teeth, making a loud but muffled grinding sound.
Crunch(noun) : a crucial point or situation, typically one at which a decision with important consequences must be made.
For those of you who do not know what Botaiku is, let me explain. Botaiku is a poetry challenge hosted daily on Twitter, making people write Haiku/Micropoetry on Gardening Theme. Since I am not that good in haikus, I chose to take the prompt and write a poem of my own here.
I loved him

and he too did the same

for, its not the consequences which scared us…
but it was our own kith and kin who played mind games against us….
