A Woman Forty Plus Aspires
I must be the centre of attention
And reaffirm my desirability.
I must feel validated as a woman
And re-experience the romance of love.
Let be burnt the ennui of monogamy.
Let come again the sexual excitement
That I went through at my first night.
Need not the man in focus be a prince,
An emperor nor a millionaire.
Let him be the one I want to be with,
In accordance with my safety,
Proximity and convenience.
Just for a ‘love you leave you alliance.’
Yes, I must waste no time to test my worth
And remain faithful with my husband.
To fall in love is to feel euphoric;
To pursue love is to have butterflies.
Nothing is more interesting than love.
Without being in love one goes restless.
Many men are love addicts, who possess
A chronic and compulsive craving for love,
Romantic or sometimes emotional,
Which might be abusive relationships.
