Feelings Of A Desperate Wife

I bake the cake in your memories.

And blow the candle of my tears,

An unwanted guest was there

To remember me, my existence

In the cave of my thought

The witches of pain hunted me,

The soup of sadness served

We cut the cake

With a hope

That one day you would remember,

The way of that road;

And the day of the year

When moments of age are melting,

Clappings and clappings,

Vanish the bird of your image

My heart sighs

On fortune’s song of loneliness

My fair, unwanted guest;

Loneliness in black robe,

Dancing on the floor of life

With a wish

Happy Birth Day

To you lonely soul.

Explanation of the Poem

Feelings of a desperate wife, is a very simple poem with the touch of emotional depth. The whole structure of the poem revolves around the feelings of a woman. And the main theme revolves around three images wife, husband and loneliness. All images of the poem are knitted around the pain of that woman whose dear one is not with him on her birthday.

I bake the cake in your memories, here that woman bake a cake in the memories of her husband. And there were tears in her eyes. Here the image of candle used as a simile to explain the intensity of the image .Loneliness in this poem is the main image an unwanted guest but the only guest to accompany her on her birthday. And that is the loneliness which remembers her that she is alive.

The witches of pain hunted me,

There is intensity of feeling of pain these lines. But desperate woman still hopeful that one day her husband would remember her birthday. Here remembrance of the life partner is more important than that occasion of birthday. Here husband actually forgot her wife. But his wife is hopping that one day her husband would remember, that day even her age is melting like the wax of candle.

On her birthday loneliness claps, and fortunes passes an ironic smile. The bird of his image vanished. Here the image of bird uses to describe the presence of a person in her life was like a bird. Her heart was sighing on the fortunes song of loneliness .Moreover there is no one in her life except her husband. But unfortunately her husband has no feelings for her. Her fair friend is loneliness. But the woman is not in love with sadly she don’t have any option except to accept that unwanted guest means loneliness.

In a nut shell we can say that in this modern period we don’t have time for anyone. That is actually hallowing our relations. We need to stuff these relations with the stuff of love and remembering and sharing others sorrows and joys of life. And the only thing that makes the bond of husband and wife’s relation strong ,is caring and remembering each others in every walk of life.

      A very different take on the birthday party. It reads so many different ways but still your first intended way. The husband could be alive and forgetful, or to me he could be the husband who is gone, taken home and you are the wife in despair yearning for his presence at the party. Hauntingly beautiful, friend! It was touching, alive, and dark. Nice.

      i think ..BIRTHDAY issue in not a serious desperation in a woman life. love is name of compromise and sacrifice. but if a man do real love with his wife, than it's should be remember his wife birthday, fabulous peom********
