A Love Of Two Sexes. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A man and a woman were in love
In spirit, by mind and with soul.
Now she is gone off the earth.
Her presence had soothed his soul.
The remembrance of her burnt his sap.
Her vision gave light to his eyes.
Her absence torched his eyes.
The world was nothing to them.
Were they in turn to the world?
No roads could reach them.
No eyes could catch them either.
They whispered in each other’s ears,
Perspired in the exchanges of glances.
Now she is dead and put on fire.
The flame left her alive, him dead.
A true story of the two
Who were not married to each other.
