Just for your glance

This poem is about a wife who waits for her husband

To have a tete a tete with him. But ………

he has no time for all these in middle of his busy work schedule.

In this poem the wife tries to woo her husband

from …….. Who is she? Just find out

 

Just for your glance!

Just for a glance from you, longingly I wait,

Spreading my charms with coffee and a brownie as a bait,

Indubitably I will draw your intense gaze towards me, I thought,

With indomitable spirit I put on the blusher and the perfume that you bought!

 

You came, you had a wash, to wash the residue of the outside world,

Gulping my brownie and sipping the coffee immersed in her world,

I have waited all day, longing to have a rendezvous with you,

For I am the one who is legally wedded and true,

 

Muttering, grumbling, clattering and reddening,

Nothing seems to draw you from her colorful chattering,

Without blinking your fingers caress her in a trance,

While I wait, just to have a word or least a sideways glance.

I know with you she burns the midnight lamp,

Smitten by her,you are welded to her, like a clamp,

Dusk has gone and night has brought the moonlight,

After the errands, I wanted to have dinner in candle light,

She is like a Trojan that has wiped out my desires and dreams,

The children have slept after their play and delighted screams,

With your tired eyes immersed in her files, and folders forever bright,

You slept with your hand stretched comfortably in her sight!

The mouse, whimpered and disturbed your noisy dreams,

While you drag yourself to cozy bed with satisfied gleam,

As for me one more night trails off, with emotions unexpressed,

Words lost and mind distressed in a world that is stressed,

News papers and magazines, mobiles and now laptop,

I have lost you to gadgets and new inventions that pop

Who can wage a war against these ………….

They interrupt our lives with ease!

A little you, a little time, a little glance that’s all I need,

Time together, with our little starlets as we agreed,

Little warmth, little memories that’s all I cherish,

To live the dream woven together, before we perish!

    Teacher The Potter I didn’t choose the title because it rhymes but because both the teacher and the potter play almost a similar role in the sense of creating something unique. Being a teacher is a very creative...

It is so easy for us to get wrapped up in our outside world that we forget to pay attention to the relationships in our life that really matter. You expressed the frustration felt by spouses all over the world! Well done. I look forward to more hubs by you.

Interesting view of things as they happen today...

we are so caught up in technology or is it the other way around that technology has us in captivity and we are willing slaves .. not knowing that we are entrapped we try to conquer the unknown.

Wives, husbands all in similar the same whirlwind.. Great poem Sandy, keep the good work going!!

Hi burns, Thank you for your encouraging words. Yes you sre very correct in saying that it is frustrating at times when we have some important thing to communicate to our spouse but cannot because of their buisy work schedule.

Dear sof,First I want to thank you for helping me to publish this hub. Thank you so much for the support and help. As you rightly put it technology is to help us to make things easy for us instead it has become more of an intruder and has us in captivity.Thanks for taking time to post a comment it is really nice to hear from you.

Well said!! Your words have captured well, the mist that is called 'modern life'.

Even now one sees, elders doing things together gardening, cooking et al. Could it be because they haven't been invaded?

Waiting for such thought provoking reads from you...

Rekha Thanks for your nice comments. As you have put it correctly that earlier generations are more connected with the natural world but ours is more obsessed with the gadgets. We do not know how to disconnect ourselves from the cyber world and maintain a perfect balance. Our relationsip and connect with our families have gone for a toss we have lost human touch.Thanks once again for your comment
