Possessiveness - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A possessive wife is a fortune.
It gives all the comforts.
But you lose freedom.
Your lust is imprisoned.
Comforts give pleasure.
Freedom gives happiness.
Freedom is supreme.
A possessive wife
Is suited to a meak husband
Otherwise it is a hell.

    A remarkably analytical commentary on the 'home truths' of our relationships. I quote some of the finest lines which highlight the contrasts: A possessive wife is a fortune /... Comforts give pleasure / Freedom gives happiness / A possessive wife /.... Otherwise... is a hell. Thanks. (Report) Reply
