Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. Poems
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.
Love In Sacrificial Mood
We loved each other in the college days,
And accidentally met with wonder
In a function along with our partners,
Two decades later, and got stuck anew.
She too has nurtured her feelings for me,
Knowing of which fanned my ember of love,
Which got refueled to flame up in glow.
Though content with spouse's relationship,
We could not forgo the pleasure of contacts
