A Woman Forty Plus Aspires Poem by Rm. Shanmugam Chettiar

A Woman Forty Plus Aspires

Rating: 4.7


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.

'faithful to the spouse' thats where men fail and women struggle and keep their wedding vows.....! women of all ages do aspire this....secretly! but morals and ethics have a bigger role to play.

Yes this does bring smiles.....! ! yet perhaps speaks of deeper truths in existence.... Perhaps men too stumble to prove themselves all over again.... Will you agree to that?

A superb creation! The inner urge of a woman after forty has been narrated in philosophical parlance. Great work!

The psychology of a married woman in her mid forties has been nicely interpreted. Thanks.
