Out of a large number of poems that I have penned since 1995, I have included all the poems I wrote during 2013 on love, relationships and family. This anthology consists of 120 poems.


Poems reflect far reaching thoughts and will take you to a new plane to think and muse on those issues that the poems touched on. I have adopted a simple style with meter addressed to. The targeted audience is common adults across the globe. I remember my parents on this occasion.

The Voice of Reason (on Shanmugam)


[Here’s a man to be revered
He has lived 73 years!
He’s prolific OVER 7000 poems!
Over 70 and still going!
India is his home nation.
He’s gotten a great education.
He’s been in a
tough line of work
His responsibilities
He didn’t shirk!
He was married many years
And a few children it appears!
He’s a man for every season
I think that he’s a
voice of reason.
On all things we don’t agree
But he has allowed my
Mind to be free.
He loves Shakespeare
And Thomas Hardey
Does he bend his views
Of life… hardly!
He may not believe in God
But his morality is not odd.
He is not afraid.
He speaks his mind.
But he is also very kind.
This wonderful man
Do not neglect…
… he deserves our…
…….. deep RESPECT! !!!

[][] Trust is the core of love


Lovers crossing a hanging bridge,

He offered her his hand to grasp;

She preferred his holding her hand.

Do grasping and holding differ?


A firm hand holding a frail one

Is a bond, ensuring safety.

A frail hand grasping a firm one

Is a bind, causing anxiety.


Woman wants to submit herself

To the trust she finds in her man.

Man takes care to sustain the faith

His woman reposes in him.





[] Of fuss of a kiss [A]


Man’s tongue is an overt phallic symbol

And woman’s mouth, an overt pudendum,

In a kiss that he employs into her mouth.

Both then get a sensation of coitus.

Expression of sexuality

Is the essence of the life.

Women enjoy exciting men.

Men enjoy being excited.

Gender proximity sparks love

And thrives if it’s bilateral

And withers when unilateral.

It is futile to segregate

Women from men to avoid rape,

Which is to be dealt with as crime

And tried with a speedy trial

To ensure a harsh punishment.

[] Blushes blossom from emotions


A wife blushes every time

Her husband touches her in bed.

A whore is devoid of blushes

Even when the partner is new.

[] Be eyes of any colour. 000


Black eyed, blue eyed, hazel eyed or

Grey eyed or brown eyed, be you any;

I love you for the eyes you own

When they have admitted me in.

[] Flirting is a game.


Women are not averse to flirting,

Given right man, right time and right space.

Most women would not cross to intimacy,

Blocked by the commitment phobias.

To have man pursue is woman’s pleasure.

To get nod to pursue is man’s pleasure.

Both play the game to enthuse themselves.

Both play the game as far as it takes them.

[] Man can’t hate woman.


If hunting does not mean hating

Or if preying is not hating

Then man is not in hating woman.

Man hunts woman or prey on her

From his ardent desire for her.

Man’s chase of her is not from hate.

Love denied, he may be angry.

Love shifted, he may be angry.

Anger does not amount to hate.

Positives can’t hate negatives.

Man cannot hate woman.

[] Acupressure effects [adult]


As he took one of my nipples

Between his lips and tugged hard,

Sensation swept through my body

And all muscles around the groin

Was tightened, implying a link

Between the nipples and the groin.

Acupressure Science has a sense.

[] Puzzles and quizzes

Puzzles and quizzes are just temptresses.

You crack your brain and seek to unfold them.

You beam if you win or go to the next.

Women to men are puzzles and quizzes.

[] Parting is sad

Away today from me you go

Though yesterday to me you came.

So now I am destined to sob

Which, heretofore, I haven’t had.

[] Let us desire anew.

I cannot desire you

As I did thirty years ago

When you were in your spring.

Still I’m the best bet you can count on

As others around you

Are seeing you in your falls.

Me alone you can tempt

For my memory of your green spring.

I alone can thrill you

With my memory of your spring image.

Let us desire anew

And explore the missed paradise.

Apr., 2013


[] Who deserves who?


Desdemona was a lily, pure white;

Othello was a beetle, utter black.

Their consents solemnized their marriage.

So there is no question of who deserved who.

Othello feared the public opinion,

Suspected Desdemona’s fidelity

And put an end to her and to himself.

Liking each other is what deserving each other.

[] You will melt for me.


What is in my brain, that was not said

In my talks to you about my fast love?


What is new to speak, what’s new to record,

That may express my love or your glory?


Nothing, beloved; no new one to say.

I shall repeat the very same again.


It’s is like a prayer, divine in chanting.

Chanting and chanting, I don’t get tired.


Hearing the chanting, no god will get bored.

Listening to my tone, tune your love sting.


Intensity of love and perseverance

I show you, will melt your heart for me.



[] She or her love?


Must I save her husband or not?

If I didn’t, she might be made mine.

If I did, her love would be mine.

I paid the bill and earned her love..

[] A victim of an affair


Sexual thirst is not the cause

But sexual pulls, for an affair.

Sexual pulls are bilateral

And reach, granted space and time.

Winning spirit acts as a drive.

Winning confirms one’s worth.

An affair can be emotional

Or physical or mere dumb.

Precedence can encourage;

Secrecy can guaranty;

Impulses can trigger the fall,

Thanks to hormones’ havoc.

Ignore, endure, cure or leave

Instead of making violence.

[] To bet for wife’s love


To retain wife’s love, you must do a lot.

You must earn well and fatten her wallet.

You must listen to her and heed no woman.

Even then there are chances for a crack.

[] One side love is a blossom.


To fall in love is not intentional

But spontaneous and incidental.

Not calculative, it is innocent

Of its end as success or failure.


The unrequited love is one side love.

The love kept undeclared is one side love.

The love might be a forbidden one

Or formidable or inaccessible.


The emotion cherished and undergone

In the one side love is not inferior

To one’s sensual and sexual impulses.

One side love is easy to form and live.


The one side love depletes not and fades not,

From the absence of expectations

Of adequate response from the partner,

Which empties the chance of dissatisfaction.

[] Love thus lives.


What your heart intends

And your lips prevent,

Yours eyes do betray.

Thus you keep my love.

All kinds of love barred

Will exist likewise.

[] It is love so true.


I looked upon her with a colleague’s eyes

When I was last with her under a roof.

Then she was a reserved one, off my scope.

When I came back in my second innings

As the head with a built up confidence,

I could look upon her with a lover’s eyes,

Being affected by her looks and smiles.

It in all possibilities reminds me

That I’d loved her before as a coworker.

A true love as it is, I must pursue.

[] The one preserved to decay


An asset is meant to appreciate,

Generate demand and be salable.

Woman considers herself as an asset

And will not sell it till demand dwindles.

[] Orgasmic pleasure


He let her not know that he loved her.

She let him not grasp that she liked him.

Lest she should veto, he locked his longings.

Lest he should decline, she veiled her lust.


How to break the ice was his concern.

How to know his pulse was her anguish

Both were desperate to know each other

And to find subtle ways to let it out.


He told her he had nurtured a gnawing wish.

What it was, she asked of him, being tense.

To know what stands between you and me:

A wall or a bridge;’ She said it a bridge.


In their next meeting, her eyes showed blushes

And his, confidence. He dared to reach her.

His love and her love on pollination

Gave them a kind of orgasmic pleasure.

Oct., 2013


[] Lavishness in love


Man is lavish in love to women.

He misses to spot those who love him.

He misses to say love to those loved.

Thus he ends up in a total failure.

[] Indian mindset is to blame.


That a woman was molested is news.

That a woman was raped is read as news.

An obscene or a kiss on stage

Will call for attack and protest all over.


Consensual sex is raided and punished.

Indoor rapes are ignored and forceful sex

By marriage has got societal sanction.

Husband’s beating is domestic problem.


To kill a girl caught in love with someone

Low in caste is one’s family honour.

People gather to be moral police

But ignore to stop sexual offense.


Indian mind-set promotes sexual crimes.

Jan., 2013



[] The value of a cute face


A woman who has a cute face

Need not reveal her parts to lure.

A woman in revealing clothes

Need not have a cute face to click.

[] Money spinner


Audience wants intimate scenes.

Audience wants hero stalks heroine.

Film makers take advantage of them.

Actors are prepared to do so.


Readers want romantic stories.

Readers want erotic novels.

Publishers take advantage of them.

Writers are willing to do so.


As long as sex is in a sealed cans,

Formidable and forbidden,

People will go hungry of sex,

And sex will be a money spinner.

Jan., 2013


[] Woman will go companion-less.


Law on sex is made strong for woman.

A girlfriend can book you for teasing.

A flirting girl can complain of molestation

And a sexual partner, of a rape.


Women blackmail men with these threats

When they are displeased or disappointed,

Their cordial relation notwithstanding.

Men scarred, women will go companion-less.

Jan., 2013

[] Sexual freedom checks rape.


No man is allowed to get a woman

To do anything without her consent.

No woman is punished for her relation

With a man of her choice at any time.

There must prevail the fear of repercussion

In the form of physical punishment

In case rape or gang rape occurs

With the trial speedy and sincere.

Where woman enjoys sexual freedom

There hardly come any sexual assaults.

Jan., 2013


[] Moral is rewritten.


Every third woman cheats on husband.

Every second man cheats on his wife.

Others might be impotent or fear struck.

Cheats include flirtation and love notes.

Jan., 2013


[] A wife’s love


He is my husband; vibrant, he must live.

Who would sleep with me? Who would spend for me?

He is my husband; invalid, he must go.

Who would spend for him? Who would carry him?

Thus might end a wife’s love for her husband.

[] Man must behave himself.


Remaining as a daughter, a sister,

And becoming a wife and a mother,

A woman stood as a person to man.

Otherwise, she was an object in his eyes.


Women who were dancers, courtesans,

Singers and actresses were seen as objects.

Menaka and Oorvasi are beauties

That fed men’s lust from the mythology..


Her face is the moon; her eyes, the faun’s.

She stoops a little, burdened by her breasts.

Her heels sink deeper, burdened by her back.

In writing and reading, sex was drunk by men.


Woman wants no more to be an object.

With self-esteem, she denies man access.

Man must see her as an individual,

Not a person, nor an object, and behave.

Jan., 2013


[] Black beauty


The dense lock eclipsed her dark skin.

Her toned body shaded her dark skin.

Her sharp eyes put aside her dark skin.

She has made me frequent her shop.

[] To drain money


Man finds money to win over woman.

Woman gets it from man to groom herself.

Man wants woman; woman wants money.

Thus excess money earned is drained away.

Jan., 2013



[] Segregation of sex


Even a piano leg is sexy,

Not to say about lady’s slippers,

Where women are shut from the sights of men.

Passion only grows from segregation.

Jan., 2013



[] The dual purpose of man


Man sees woman as a property

And controls her sexuality.

Man’s possessiveness has been answered.


Man sees woman as a sex object

And have her exhibit her body.

Man’s polygamy has been addressed.

[] Misconception

Betting his higher position,

Man seeks woman low in rank.

She’ll take it as her privilege

To be a love of his fevour.

Accepting him in his advance

Because of his high position

Is being a pray to a wolf.

Wise women keep such men at bay.

Jan., 2013




She wanted a groom fit to her standard,

Which she was not getting despite search,

Owing to her dullness in appearance.

She chose to be single without a mismatch.

Jan., 2013


[] To be haste is to waste.


Closer and closer, taking liberty,

When a man advances towards a woman,

She would thing that he is treating her cheap

And put a full stop to his ambition.

[] No deprivation it is.


Deprived of cigar or liquor,

Those who aren’t exposed to it,

Would not suffer for want of it.

So do chaste ones from monogamy.

Jan., 2013


[] Why are they gays?


Too shy to confront woman in bed,

A man ends as a homosexual,

Like an introvert who is too shy

To face an alien situation.

Feb., 2013



[] Seek the submissive.[adult]


The strongest humiliation man suffers

Is from the Erectile Dysfunction,

More from the psychological factors.

Every third male has experienced it.

Half of them are due to low self esteem.

Seek woman you can dominate in bed.

[] Essence of life


Expression of sexuality

Is not an invitation for sex.

Expression of sexuality

Is an essence of life.

Expression of love

Is not an adultery.

Sexuality is experienced

In mutual exchange of visuals.

Relationship is enjoyed

Without prejudice to modesty.

Feb., 2013

[] Husbands’ sins


Wives are fed with sex by husbands

And prisoners are fed with food,

Both just to kill their appetite.

Wives denied feasts, husbands reap sins. Feb., 2013


[] The flame to live


Mutual cares and concerns are the fuel

That must come forth to keep the love alive

As supply of fuel must continue

To keep the flame of the lamp from dying.


How much fuel might have a husband spent

For his wife to keep her in good humour?

How much fuel must have a lover spent

For his beloved to retain her love? Feb., 2013

[] Love is status bound.


She loves him for he is handsome,

Rich and cheerful, and for himself.

That he loves her is least mattered.

Without that also she could love.

With that alone she would not love.

With the other factors she could love

Any other knight if chance allowed.

She is sticking to him for the present.

What, if he went poor and invalid?

Love marriage has no advantage

Over arranged marriage in survival.

Feb., 2013


[] To avenge their depravity in love


Most of women just flirt with men.

All of them are called adulterous.

Whim and fancy of gossipers

Are to avenge their depravity.

Feb., 2013

[] Sex without fear


Sex is a biological need and a right.

The society has no right to deny it.

The delay in the years of marriage

And the aversion shown towards it

Make it necessary to develop affairs

Before wedlock or without wedlock.

The society by stringent laws

Should not criminalize sexual acts

And deny the legitimate need and the right

To experience sexual love and passion

Without fear and without vandalism.

Denial of sex is denial of pleasure.

Feb., 2013

[] In-sensitiveness.


Man is ready to desire any woman

And is in constant watch for this purpose.

Hence women show blind eyes and deaf ears.

Are men optimist or insensitive? Mar., 2013


[] A face matters


The face gains acceptance

When women appear

In revealing clothes.

With face in acceptance,

Eyes wander not in search

Of the revealing parts

In subsequent appearances. Mar., 2013

[] Humans are drawn upward.


Fair skin stands for beauty.

Tallness stands for beauty.

So do oval smooth face.

They’re upper-class features.

[] Pursue sexual love


Love is through which you can attain the bliss.

Intensity of love determines it.

Intensity is easier in sexual love

Than in spiritual love. Pursue passion

Mar., 2013


[] Love rises and ebbs.


That I take your wish as a command

Will show the depth of love I’ve for you

That I take your wish as a burden

Will show the ebb of love I’ve for you.

Love is waves that rise up and ebb.

Patience alone can sustain it.

[] Wife’s compliments and contempt.


No better compliment could be

For a husband from his cute wife

When she holds her child as his

Rather than hers, and with it she beams.

No bitter contempt too could be

For a husband from his own wife

When she holds it solely as hers

And avoids projecting it as his.

Mar., 2013

[] Conjunction is sex


She drives him insane with her sucks of his.

He loses himself, which is his pleasure.

She submits herself, which is his pleasure.

She is in the driving seat, her pleasure.


He drives her insane with his licks of hers.

She loses herself, which is her pleasure.

He submits himself, which is her pleasure.

He is in the driving seat, his pleasure.


He sinks into her and moves up and down.

She moves her pelvis to meet his charges.

She feels fullness in, and sensation sweeps.

He feels tightness in, and sensation sweeps.


Tension on its peak, he falls on release.

Tension on its depth, she falls on relief.

Losing to each other is the sexual bliss.

Charging and yielding are the sexual bliss.

Back to content


Man is subject and woman is object.

Her responses are subject complements.

His imitative are object complements.

Sex is a conjunction joining two halves

[] The couple made a history.


He and she were not a match

As they have got same birth stars.

It’ll give them ups or downs same time.

Pundits predicted like that.

Yet they married and had lived

Happily for fifty years.

Now both have developed cancer,

A proof to the prediction Mar., 2013

[] Come out of the shell.


Prostitution is purely a business.

Man buys; woman sells; a private affair.

They transact without any disturbance.

Punishing them is an act of sadism.

Apr., 2013

[] For woman’s attention


Woman in revealing pose,

Man accepts her any face.

Woman in concealing pose,

[] Swapping spouses


In monogamy, man goes dry;

In monoandry, woman does.

In polygamy, man stays wet;

In polyandry, woman does.

In swapping wives, both stay wet.


Swapping spouses is a new game,

Devoid of any paramour,

Unsoiled by prostitution

And of adultery as whitewashed.

Guiltless, couples get sexual bliss.

Apr., 2013



[] To look with comforts


More and more in exposure,

The back lost its glamour.

More and more in focus,

The shoulders lost their sheen.

More and more in display,

The cleavage lost its appeal.

More and more in show,

The face will retain its glow.

The face shown and the rest hidden,

A woman looks with comforts.

[] Not for a night stand


I wish you admire me

But don’t say it to me.

I wish you desire me

But don’t show it to me.

It means you are braver

And I am cheaper.

Without your conveyance,

I can read it from your eyes.

Without your expression,

I can sense from your looks.

So don’t embarrass me.

I can guess and feel sex.

In the medieval days

Women encouraged men

To woo and pursue them

For those men made courtships

With women for marriage

And not for a night stand.

Apr., 2013


[] Is she his property?


Woman may resent being man’s property;

Woman may refuse to be man’s property.

Man considers woman as his property,

And defends her more than his property.


The king utmost prefers losing his kingdom

To losing his consort in eventuality.

He would not lose his queen, to save his life.

The queen too wants to be his exclusive. Back to content

Woman cannot surpass man in loving,

Caring and protecting a woman, sure.

She to him is more than a property.

He to her is more than a proprietor.


The influence you have on someone you love

Gives you a spirit of love and affection.

When man and woman are in embrace of love

Woman doesn’t mind being man’s property.

Apr., 2013

[] Lips and tongues[A]


Woman’s lips,

A pair horizontal above

And a pair vertical below

Send man insane in bed

When they lock

Man’s shooting lower tongue.


Man’s tongues,

One wagging above

And one shooting below

Send woman insane in bed

When they play

In woman’s vertical lower lips.


Thus, manmade devices

Of woman’s sucks

And man’s licks

Serve as the best foreplays

To prepare the couple

Against monotony in sex.

Apr., 2013 Back to content

[] Breaking of relations


Separation by force is painful.

Separation mutual is harmless.

Separation unilateral

Is painful to the aggrieved one.

Most premarital relationships

End like that, making victims a lot.

The affair is a soother to both

To muse and chuckle later in life.

May, 2013


[] To bring down offences


Abandon fabrics; abolish marriage.

Hold the sex not a sin, nor a taboo.

Men will become free of sex starvation.

Women will lose her sexual importance.


No sexual assaults; no romantic acts.

No paramour and no adultery.

No adult movies; no adult contents.

Even art and literature will die.


Woman’s image is not a money spinner.

No more murder is for illicit sex.

Libido releases and lubricates life.

Then will come down the drive for offences.

[] The old are bold.


Be it monkeys or elephants

Or any gregarious species,

Old males corner all young females

And leave young males to starve for sex.

Old females and young males are left

To be together and have fun.

May, 2013


[] Virility of the old


A man of seventy,

Still remaining healthy,

And young in perception

Like a man of thirty

On love, lust and passion

With woman in focus,

Is to men a pervert

And to women an expert.

Don’t mortify such men.

Put down your jealousy.

May, 2013

[] To be made meaningful. 0000


Unless your eyes turn into chisels,

I’d be granite, not a statue.

Unless my lips turn into brushes,

You’d be canvas, not a picture.

Your glances and my utterances

Can transform us to meaningful ones.

[] In glow without make up


Makeup heavily coats the skin,

And makes it impermeable,

And blocks the hormone osmosis,

Responsible for the skin glow.

See the woman in the kitchen

Or from the bath to note difference.

May, 2013


[] Woman’s needs


Cuddling; pampering; chivalry;

The child expects; parents provide.

Woman, any age, too from men;

The art known, men win over her.



[] Seamen catch no cold.


In contacts between man and woman,

Take place visual communication,

Verbal and aura communications

Providing expression of sexuality.


Where the inter gender relationship

Is tabooed and stigmatized,

There’ll crop up incest relation

Or will sneak out illicit relation.

May, 2013 Back to content

[] Internet romance


Romance in the net

With false identities

Will betray commitment.

A prostitution.


Friendship in the net

With sexual intent

Without the partner involved

Is a voyeurism.


Such indulgence is

A kind of perversion

Floating in India

Due to sex repressiveness. June, 2013

[] Face to acquire grace.


Hers tucked inside, man’s eyes look for them.

Hers held under wraps, man’s eyes feel for them.

Hers kept from sneaking, man’s eyes presume them.

Her bosom in place, her face acquires grace.

June, 2013



Engaged in talks with a potent woman,

Man’s eyes feed on her body; he’s helpless.

Watching a woman singing on the stage,

Man’s eyes devour her visage; he’s helpless.

Woman knows it and will have no complaints.

Is voyeurism a sexual assault?

[] Be a Bhishma of the Mahabharat


Let the lone mother find her lover.

Let the lone father seek his beloved.

Children must act as a catalyst

And be a Bhishma in their approach.

[Bhishma in the Epic Mahabharata, helped his widower father remarry the desired fisherwoman, sacrificing his throne in fevour of would be step sibling and observed celibacy to emit his progeny which might claim kingship.]


[] An affair is not love.


In love if one wrecks, the other suffers.

If someone wrecks it, both would suffer.

From the wreckage, if both do not suffer,

Then it is not love but prostitution.

June, 2013


[] The mental maturity


Woman gets ripe by mind, reaching thirty,

While man gets it only at his forty,

Towards when both are solid for marriage,

Since when they’d feel no need for a divorce.

[] Marriage is not a mockery.


Man and woman fell in love to commit,

Married to commit and begot to commit.

They were together throughout to commit.

The other one remained as a widow

Or a widower, again to commit.

The commitment was the purpose of life.

With escapism in mind don’t enter

Into marriage and make a mockery of it.

June. 2013


[] The constancy


A wife redeems her husband’s heart

He had pledged elsewhere earlier.

A husband hardly succeeds in such cases.

Man is more fluid in the constancy.

[] Poly-amorous relationships


The female scorpion takes forty eight hours

To get arousal for the same partner

But is ready in a hour and a half

If the sexual partner is a stranger.

The sexual drive dead in the old couple

Gets renewed when paired with the new ones.


Sex suffers a lot from monogamy

And monogamy is undoable though.

To be desirable is the goal of life,

Which is not addressed in monogamy.

Monogamy cannot be dispensed with

For its guarantee and ownerships.


The elite struck a way and brought about

The poly-amorous relationships,

Which are enacted with the knowledge and

Tacit consents of everyone involved.

As husbands and wives they roam in the days

And go out reaching lovers in the nights.

June, 2013


[] Being a half gives the drive.


Woman is a half and man, the other.

They aren’t ones; they together make one.

The two halves join and reproduce one

Which is again a half. Thus, it is made

Both are always halves with drives to become one.

[] Any tie is good.


Lord Rama practiced monogamy.

Prince Arjuna practiced polygamy.

Queen Panchali observed polyandry.

Constancy was in all the formats.

Infidelity never crept in.

With no transgression, any tie is good.

June, 2013


[] The virginity 000


Innocence is pure; innocence is fresh;

Innocence is new. So, it’s a beauty.

The virginity is the innocence.

Virginity is itself a beauty.

June, 2013


[] The vertical growth of man’s love


Man’s love for woman witnesses

A vertical growth from inception

Of his desire and pursuits

And stops growing further higher

When he has impregnated her.

It is like the growth of one’s bone,

Which ceases with its adulthood.

Love and bone do not grow further.

[] The odd relationships


Two like charges or two like poles

Repel each other in contact.

[] To earn out of the way


The pleasure I get when I please my wife

Or children with kinds or comforts or cash

Drives me to earn even out of the way.

It is the case for all weak minded men.

[] The hurts of the breakage


The end of my relationships with her,

My heart throb, did not hurt me but did

The way I had to behave as a stranger

With her, whom I thought I couldn’t live without.


The end of my friendships with him,

My staunch mate, did not prick me but did

The way I had to behave as an enemy

With him, whom I thought as my staunch support.

[] Energy is sexy.


An intellect is seductive to ladies.

A genius is prone to womanize.

Ladies are drawn towards intellectuals

As they get from them a feeling of self-worth.


One’s ability is one’s energy.

Great men have abundant energy,

Which is inclusive of sexual energy.

They deserve allowance for their conducts.

July, 2013

[] Love is an illusion.


I am born alone and shall go alone.

In the meanwhile also I’m alone.

Only when I am in love with someone

I make an illusion that I’m not alone.

July, 2013


[] Why is love failure hailed?


Love failure is long remembered.

The unrequited love is cherished.

It has appeals to those who are deprived

Of true love experience in their lives.


Such love is a fantasy that chimes

With the longing of the fantasists.

People bereft of love overwhelming,

The unrequited love is glorified.

[] Impotency is creeping in.


Seeing and seeing matches from T.V.,

An easy access to the people across,

They lost interest in seeing it real.

Seeing and seeing porn from internet,

A secret access to the people across,

They suffer arousal in actual acts.

July, 2013



[] The fate of last hopes


A dying man takes his hopes and wishes

For granted in absence of a feed back

As a lover takes his love letter sent

For granted in absence of negation.

[] The ultimate winner


There were many who stole her glances

Or won her heart and some had coitus,

But her husband is the ultimate

Winner, whose seeds she has borne.

[] Mind toilets.


A public toilet can’t be as pleasant

For the ones who keep it or who use it.

Sex workers aren’t different from this.

Avoid being one or going to one.

Aug., 2013


[] Who could be a beauty?


Agreeableness is beauty

Or sexual attraction is beauty.

One must be either of two

To you, to qualify for a beauty.

Aug., 2013


[] The second spring


Autumn is a second spring

When all leaves would look flowers

In any temperate land.

Woman gets it at forty.

Aug., 2013

[] Love is blind.


The sweet music is the lover’s tongue.

The sweet odour is the lover’s sweat.

The sweet taste is the lover’s skin.

Sexual impulses blind one’s senses.

[] Honey is sweet.


No need of flamboyant garments;

No need of revealing display;

No need of alluring attire;

Woman’s mere face and her contours

Would give signals to men’s eyes.

Blame not honey for its sweetness.

Aug., 2013.

[] Emotional infidelity


Infidelity can be emotional

In the absence of corporal contacts.

Proximity and banter can promote it.

Any relationships across the gender,

Kept in secret from the spouse’s knowledge

For the sexual pleasure it derives,

Can be termed emotional infidelity.

No harm and hence, it is connived at.

[] Woman’s love for man


Women are not mad of men

As men are after women.

Writers being mostly men,

It’s man’s view about woman.

[] Man changing to woman


Femininity of a woman dies

In the eyes of a man in love

When she is taller or bolder,

He ending up as a woman.

Jan., 2013


[] Domains of man and woman [A]


Conquering spirit will reign in a man

When he is in foreplay with a woman.

Surrendering state will capture him soon

On his entering her and being locked.


Simmering lust will run in a woman

When she is initiated by a man.

Capturing status will catch her soon

On her clamping him and locking him in.

[] Being detachable


Detachable ones are separated

With no damage to the parts separated.

Divorces are obtained without bruises

As the couple lives as detachable.

[] Realities differ


Two boys loving a girl

Or two girls loving a boy

And the loved one paying

The love to only one

Is the norm in stories,

But in reality

People love more than one


Aug., 2013


[] Come out of delusion.


Possessiveness is delusion.

It seeks absolute ownerships

And exclusive enterprise.

It binds one with a golden chain.

It is born from the weak mindset.

The more you are possessive

The less you are in receipt of love.

Fear of losing love as the cause

For possessiveness, loses the love.

[] No monopoly in love


The person you desire

Is, was and will be desired by others.

The person you desire

Desires, desired and would desire others.

The person you desire

Is not the only person you ever desire.

There is no monopoly

In respect of love for anyone.

[] India witnesses more rapes.


When robbed, no shame is to the victim.

When swindled, no shame is to the victim.

When raped, all shame is to the raped.

The society is to be blamed.


No publicity to the one robbed.

No publicity to the one swindled.

All publicity to the one raped.

The society is to be blamed.


The trauma experienced

By the woman raped is severer

Than that of the robbed and the swindled.

The society is to be blamed.


The robber gets the public’s wrath.

The swindler gets the public’s wrath.

The rapist slips as a conqueror.

The society is to be blamed.

[] Her face and his talks


Man is lured by woman’s face.

Woman is lured by man’s talks.

Her face is an assurance

And his talks are a promise.

[] Man’s concern for woman


A predator seeks no consent

From the prey it is aiming at.

Such tendencies are explicit

In men’s desire towards women.

[] Must human race decline?


Be woman feminine;

She need not ape man.

Be man masculine.

He need not come down.

Be they themselves as much.

Be they so that they cling.

Then only they flower,

Pollination takes place

And fertilization sets in.

Else, human race will decline.

[] Woman’s dignity


She might love him as much as he does her

And yet would give him much anxities.

Too easily to be won in courtships

Stands against woman’s maiden dignity.

Sep., 2013

[] The pride of woman


Armed with beauty, modesty

And intelligence in full,

She wants her groom good to be

Older, wiser and higher

So that she could be at ease

To lean by body and mind.

Woman wants man her higher. Sep., 2013

[] Hormones and the urge


Woman is attractive to man,

Thanks to her female hormones.

Man is attractive to woman,

Thanks to his male hormones.

Hormones surge with puberties

And cease with menopauses.

With that go their attractions.

Passions for the opposite sex

Are embedded in the brains;

It works beyond one’s menopause.

Sexual urge without sexual pulls;

Not attractive yet passionate,

The aged ones are unfortunate. Oct., 2013

[] Man’s satisfaction


Man’s satisfaction is not absolute

Unless he finds it full from his bed-mate.

Then only is his manliness approved.

It’s this that drives him to toil his best.

[] Beauty hides reality


Imagination adds to beauty.

Exaggeration adds to beauty.

So do make up and cover up.

Beauty alters reality.

Oct., 2013


[] The old wood is not dead.


Lust for woman hardly dies in man.

Its root is the sexual thoughts in the brain.

Lust for woman deeply lies in man

Even after cessation of sex acts.

Flowers lost, leaves lost and stem lost, stays the root.

Hands and mouth under the supervision of eyes

Are the undying sexual organs for man.

Eyes are as cunning as they were before.

[] Orgasmic bliss


Human is of body and mind;

They are matter and energy.

Energy includes sexual energy;

Sexual energy is the strongest.


Man and woman experience

Sexual energy in their union,

Which culminates in orgasmic bliss.

One can get it without coitus too.


Lord Krishna could give orgasmic bliss

To thousands of women, Gopis.

The dance dramas of Gopis and Krishna

Give the performers and the viewers this bliss.


Lot of men could get orgasmic bliss

From their heart throbs without touches.

Lot of men in their friendships across sex

Could draw such bliss in their company


To spend sexual energy

And feel the orgasmic bliss

Without sexual union

Spares human’s starvation of sex.

[Gopis are virgin women who fell in love for God incarnation Krishna on the banks of The Jamuna River in his life play]

[] Anger and passion


Anger springs; passion springs.

They respond to stimuli.

They cannot be sealed;

They can be channelized.

Mind finds outlets for them

To match the opponents.

One hits, shouts, sulks or cries

When one is in anger.

One shows, hints, hides or dreams

When one is with passion.

Sometimes they might transmit:

To beat the child instead

Of the spouse and to kiss

The child instead of lover;

Oct., 2013


[] Soft and rough is woman. 000


Wind is soft; water is soft.

Gale is wind; flood is water.

Woman too is soft like them

And can turn a gale or flood.


[] Lust is bait.


Man sets bait to catch fish.

With bait the fish might slip.

God set lust as bait for birth.

Man gets it without a birth.

[] Man is safe from marriage


Marriage is a registration,

Where a woman is reserved for a man

For an exclusive possession

With a bar to all other men.

Nov., 2013


[] The purpose of marriage


Marriage is a bandage given

For two souls to fuse together.

If it happens without a marriage,

Then marriage is redundant.

Nov., 2013



[] Two types of love


Two types of love man is longing for.

To love someone by a surrender.

It can be a mother or a God.

To love someone from sexual urge.

It can be a wife or a beloved.

By both ways one feels secure,

By holding above and footing below.

[] Is woman a threat?


The home-bound women have turned work-bound ones.

They assert their freedom with their spouses.

Wise men will hold them as their assets

And the insecure hold them as a threat.

The Voice of Reason (for shanmugam)

[Here’s a man to be revered
He has lived 73 years!
He’s prolific OVER 7000 poems!
Over 70 and still going!
India is his home nation.
He’s gotten a great education.
He’s been in a
tough line of work
His responsibilities
He didn’t shirk!
He was married many years
And a few children it appears!
He’s a man for every season
I think that he’s a
voice of reason.
On all things we don’t agree
But he has allowed my
Mind to be free.
He loves Shakespeare
And Thomas Hardey
Does he bend his views
Of life… hardly!
He may not believe in God
But his morality is not odd.
He is not afraid.
He speaks his mind.
But he is also very kind.
This wonderful man
Do not neglect…
… he deserves our…
…….. deep RESPECT! !!!

Trust Is The Core Of Love by Mr.Rm.Shanmugamchettiar Page 65



Out of a large number of poems that I have penned since 1995, I have included all the poems I wrote during 2013 on love, relationships and family. This anthology consists of 120 poems. Poems reflect far reaching thoughts and will take you to a new plane to think and muse on those issues that the poems touched on. I have adopted a simple style with meter addressed to. The targeted audience is common adults across the globe. I remember my parents on this occasion.
