The Best Poem Of Rm. Shanmugam Chettiar

A Woman Forty Plus Aspires

I must be the centre of attention
And reaffirm my desirability.
I must feel validated as a woman
And re-experience the romance of love.
Let be burnt the ennui of monogamy.
Let come again the sexual excitement
That I went through at my first night.
Need not the man in focus be a prince,
An emperor nor a millionaire.
Let him be the one I want to be with,
In accordance with my safety,
Proximity and convenience.
Just for a ‘love you leave you alliance.’
Yes, I must waste no time to test my worth
And remain faithful with my husband.

When I accidentally came into this site on 18th December 2011 for the first time, his name appeared on the Home page. Out of curiosity, I logged in and posted a few poems. Rm. Shanmugam Chettiar's poems talk about eternal truth, though he touches a few odd subjects here and there.
