Words of emergency on the
Ripping you out of a relaxing snooze
In the midst of editing journal poetry
Since years not such a shock of
A spouse’s cry for immediate help.
Another way to get the husband going
No peace for his literary work.
Throw in the towel of your temporary
Try defending your hard fought about
It goes for artist or poet
For the man cherishing his space
For the woman who treasures her
Tryst with personal freedom
For the designer of wondrous art
That depicts the atmosphere of scenes
He has invented for the pleasure
Of his readers.
Words of emergency mean the state
Of a suffering spouse
Who had inherited a damaged set
Of nerve endings
Especially in the tips of her toes.
Why would she shout at her spouse
Is he the only one left to listen?
A stand-by help besides a life-long
Debate to find inner peace and
Less troubles for one’s soul.
