Running Scared - Poem by Sangnam Nam

That winter was so cold
and he thinks it's quite OK
for he is from the northern parts
of the country where
the cold is quite natural
things to live with
frozen car he thaws every morning
with hot boiling water
the engines are not functioning
in those cold early mornings
he has to go to work
riding that cold car
so thawing out the frozen car engines
was his everyday chore
didn't feel it was a nuisance
for he is accustomed to do such a thing
the year he was in his honeymoon
with wife at home not have to do
such a hard chores like him
the wife feels so romantic to see
the man do that every morning
before going to work,
and returns home on time
punctual his returning time was
the snow also added the coldness
outside the wife doesn't need to go
outside for the man brings everything needed
home if the door is locked and the wife
doesn't answer the door
after several tries of ringing the door bell
he is so worried and goes anxious
until he finds out that the wife was
deeply asleep didn't hear the door bell sound
now he is relieved and doesn't blame the wife
who is a 'childlike' to him
he likes her for the man's wife is so
having been away from her parents
acting as if she was twelve years old
he resembles her father back home
so she likes him he her
the morning of the snow and frost
terrible cold keeps the couple warm
don't have much to brag about but
they have each other
that's how the married couples honeymoon
days were...
but the wife is not happy for his
living style is a bit too harsh
for her to stay with him for life
so she leaves and his heart is still for her
but she leaves him and stays on her own
'Sadagy, sadagy'
he says to describe the situation
sad and tragic
the couple is no more of a couple
for the life shared was just too short
and he was all to himself
made the girl lonely
for home for love for caring
but don't complain about them
he doesn't know why she is leaving him
she either doesn't know why she is leaving him
the judge at the court wants the answer to the
question 'Why are you leaving him? '
no answer was the answer
if she says anything
that won't be true
so they parted and left each other
the snow and cold in their honeymoon days
are a long ago story
she wore a looking glass to see him
a hero but he is only a human
no hero no wonder man
