Nalini Jyotsana Chaturvedi

(18/2/71 / Jaipur, india)

Love was never there


You never loved me
I now realise
It's what I could get you
That you fantasised

I was to be your stepping stone
Inanimate piece, to be used and thrown
So when you found me obsolete
That I was no longer, what you need

Like a moth eaten rug
You threw me out
You looked so smug
You shameless lout.

I don't blame you
For any of my pains
I should have seen through
Your charismatic pretence

Another new victim
You will entice
Out on the prowl
Is this killer full of vice

Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
