My Wife And My Poems


In my poems
What do you like to see?

Is it me or my strength
Of imagination?

Whatever you like
Like those with pleasure
And freedom

I am delightfully
At my knees

Seeing upon my poems
Of darkness

My wife does not
See me eye to eye

Though I tell her
They are half of me

And the other half is
my imagination

I do not know
Whether she believes me or not

But she can not stand
And takes her bed seriously
Since then

    This poem of yours remind me of ending lines of one of my hindi poem' Kavi ki patni' which goes like this: Kavita ko patni apni saut samajhti hai, ki kavi ki patni kavita hi hoti hai../. But who cares! Ha Ha Ha (Report) Reply

    Maybe this is why some people say we are a strange bunch. A different breed. Maybe so. We write with our heart, our inner most feeling come forth. Also extra sensitive, that is why we understand and read each other. Beautiful poem, but I understand her. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
