Come hither, do not fear
My beloved, there is nothing that separates us here
We are one for aeons to come.
So saying he held my hand
The journey of tears arising in my heart
and finding expression in my eyes began.
How was i to tell him this wish of his falls on deaf ears?
I didn’t have the courage
I meekly obeyed, doe eyed gazed
Years passed, slowly from a lover he
Became a man at large,
He was now ready for everything
Capable of everything
Where earlier he had needed my support
Today he was in love with himself
I wondered in fultility ”where i was?”
I had cried alone, in order to prevent him from suffering;
I, now cried infront of him to stop this infliction
Does love do this to all?
Does love make man the master of a woman?
To lash,to whip, to ignore
Are all his rights
To concede, care , compromise in addition to conceive, mine.
I bore the burden with pride
But prayed deep inside
I will revolt,this will not subside…
Yet another day,I think, yet another day
Till then its my sorrow,my plight.
