An Ageing Sex - Poem by lalitha iyer

yes, love is
by time and
space Sex is...

by telepathies
and thoughts hypnotising
but, Sex
distanced by space....

When the hair turns grey
and heartbeats stray
little by little
the seed of life
is sucked by the vortices
of difficult strides

When the Pain of living
outwits the pain of life
when the aching body
could only ache in pining
what wrinkles Sex
and buries unspent.

When words caused havocs
now, sights space locks
When looks chanted worlds
now, looking is only seeing.
When fragility of life
caged within flaps its feathers
to just live with ease
the Spring weathers away
and strangely tremors.
