The Love Not Sparking - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Man’s love for woman is blatant.
Woman’s love for man is latent.
Blatant or latent, there is love
Between the two opposite sexes.
She puts him blind
By her opaque veil.
Yet he is adept to see through
Little gaps her throbs.
Both lose the battle
Without waging it at all.
