You, As I Know. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

You, full of guilt,
Extremely shy,
And prone to shiver.

Full of passion,
Strong in emotion
And still placid in vision.

Good at desk,
Lazy in house works
Or in domestic cores.

At ease with brain
But less so with limbs
And in manuals.

For being admired
And pampered
Rather than vice versa.

keen to be fondled
And to be nestled
But in no way to requite.

Eager to be dotted on
By any in position
And not keen in repetition.

Not one enticing
Nor one yielding
But choosy for entertaining.

Discreet to foster me,
Me not the only one
But not a festered one.

Who fully I know,
Accordingly I befit
And shall keep aloft.

The apple of my aye,
Is kept bouncing and buoyant
By me, myself thus vibrant.

Who can’t be apart,
Are in me a part
And July twelfth can’t part.
