Romance Is Short Lived Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.


Romance is a chase. Both will stop doing
Once the pursued one is in the pocket.
Man skips romance soon after marriage.
Wife minds it not, getting proprietorial role.

Romance is the cotyledons of the seed.
Once germination is set they will die as food.
Seeds must die for the shoots to develop.
Romance should wane for the love to stabilize.

    Brilliant idea... I love the way how you compare romance to a seed, optimistic. But in the first stanza its kinda feminist... (Report) Reply

    Brilliant idea... I love the way how you compare romance to a seed, optimistic. But in the first stanza its kinda feminist... The title also is kinda not relevant to the text. (Report) Reply
