Sex Binds Us - Poem by Aparna Chatterjee

Sex binds us.
Nothing else.

You don’t feel like
Making love
To a man,
Whom you
Just love
As a friend.

But you have to
As he’s the one
You are
Married to…

We are bonded
By sex.

He, with an
To make love.
And I,
Just as well
With no sex.

On second thoughts,
Sex binds us – does it?

    that's bold...i think its the same for most married women...the monotony of the routine...more so in Indian households if I am right...the house, the kids, the husband, the job, the extended family of friends and relatives...where the time for sex? ...its there more becoz the hubby can't do without it! !
