Village Voice- Clamouring For Love

I fear…I fear…
I shall be …
No more youthful!

You went to city
To bury our misery
Upon the tank's full,
You promise to return,
Take to cultivation
And marry me!
Here is scarcity
Of drinking water!

Scores of moon
Pass as age
Upon my person!

I fear…I fear…;
Semi-literate you are,
A little English you speak,
In case
Any English speaking
Girl traps you…?

Solutions seem
Entangled in questions as
Unfastenable knots!

I fear…I fear…;
Whether I build
Four walls
Around me;
Doorless, windowless
But the darkest hopes!

I call, I shout, I shriek,
I hear no reply!

I fear…I fear…;
I doubt
I die spinster!

    Interesting poem. Brings to life the fears of many women of growing old alone. Although sharing your life with someone can be a wonderful thing, I find if you are comfortable and peaceful with being who you are, then you can also live a fulfilled life whether you share it with another or not. As for the poem, I like the emotion and almost desperate cry for a lover to return that comes almost screaming through. Well done. (Report) Reply

God leaves alone.
