Absence, Worse Than Presence - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

At my ten itself I was aroused
By the sight of massive women.
At six-ten, too, I had aroused
The hearts of younger women.
There were many I had courted
But they conveniently deserted.
There were many paths I treaded
But all led me to the dead-end.
I hate women but it is the lack
Of woman that I hate most.
