Marital Rape Of A Man - Poem by Deepti Agarwal

With dreams of Happy life
got married and brought home his wife
with zillion thoughts he entered his room
only to find his bride sound asleep
was touched to see how at ease she felt
thought himself proud to be called her husband...

morning he woke and got tea ready
waiting anxiously for his bride to see
and appreciate his efforts for her
got a shock when she came grumbling
why was she forced to get awake when
it was only nine in the morning...

In the evening he took her for a stroll
she made sure to push and make him fall
with a look of satisfaction
she laughed like a cunning witch
he took it light and brought her a cute gift
which was thrown away in a quick swift...

he felt his dreams shattering away
the next moment her sensuous kisses
made him forget all around him
hand in hand they returned home
uneasy feeling melt in the heat
everything was calm and sweet...

what more a man would want
then to see his bride respect his Mom
when everything seemed to be sailing smooth
whirlwind came and wrecked his life
wierd change was seen in his wife
in the form of a tight slap in front of all...

He could see stars shine in the day
her fingers imprinted on his cheek
then for the next two days..
suddenly mother was cursed for everything
for not cooking, cleaning and all sort of things...

In a jiff she called her mother
and filed a case against him.
he was awestruck to see the change of things
and being pulled to jail for marrying
loving and caring for her...

Is it not 'Marital Rape of a man'
where Love,
Patience and
Devotion
are crushed.

    had a man written this, the pseudo feminists would be up in arms calling it 'sexist' and 'unreal'. A man is usually cowed down to not reveal his worry 'cause of his 'manliness'. i guess a lot of men out there get a 'beating' too and never talk about it.

    poetry wise, well written tragi-comedy/parody on life 10/10

    Well, I suppose it could be described as such, when a man who loves is
    treated in such a way. I have heard of this. I am reminded of a poem of mine
    called THE CORE OF SIN. I won't give it away, but the essence of this
    writing is contained in it. Though it is a very different writing.

    oh yes, men are also victimised in marriage. it is sad the law is partial to women, and at times they get away with murder and leave him bankrupt. we are all human, feel hurt when spurned, disrespected. very fine compassionate poem Deepti.10 (Report)Reply

    the title of the poem is so apt and catchy-it is true in this world where materialism reigns supreme at times women- who are supposed to be an epitome of love puts up a tardy form and ruin many lives at a go! deepti after all it takes all type of people to make this world.very well propounded (Report)Reply

    a mis match...a mis marriage...such things can happen in life...an urge for vengeance perhaps prior to her marriage, could have been rooted in the mind of that woman...a ten for the nice narration (Report)Reply

    Is this true Deepti? ? ? ! ! ! ! ! a male harassed by female...I saw in movies women who were not aware of sex and seperately those viragos Shakespeare speaks of. But this all in one female is really ferocious.....wow...you narrated it so greatly.....10++++++++++++++++++++++++ (Report)Reply
