When I Married a Poetess


When I married a poetess,

Pain, I divorced

Bad temper, I quitted

Pampered I am

With her written pieces,

Lavish in her verses,

Languishing not in silence

As verbalization is the dovish neighborhood


When I married a poetess

I stare at the moon,

Suntan under the sun,

Sing  in the rain,

Dance in the snow,

Tell stories in the storm,

Bake during the Covid-19,

But never curse the day

I met my princess poet

My life with her

Is scintillating,


When I married a poetess,

I am watching my language,

At night or daytime

Caught with a birdlime

Of vocatives,

Luring vocabulary,

My diction grows,

Like a mother lulls her child

To fall asleep.
