The Solitary Anguish (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

111.He whom I love, but she whom he loves obtains
The seedless, luscious fruit of love to enjoy.
112.As the clouds shower enough rains to those who expect it,
The lovers bestow tender grace on those who love them.
113.The women whom my beloved lover loves may boast
To say, “ We will live” and it suits them best.
114.If the women esteemed by the chaste women are not loved
By my beloved husband, then they are unlucky.
115.When my beloved lover does not love me
What good will he do to me?
116.One sided love is painful. But two sided love, like
the bow-like pole decked with peacock feathers gives joy.
117.As Cupid wages war by standing beside the one,
Doesn’t he know my sick of love and pain?
118.Hearing not the pleasant words of the beloved husband
No one is more courageous than the woman living single.
119.Though my beloved bestows no grace to me
Listening to his qualities is sweet melody to my ears.
