The symptom

Two legs in one
Trouser and pants
She thrust words as
Arrows and spears…

Some times tears melt
Mountains of ice
Some times the tears
Refuse to pour

Instead it falls
Like collapsed walls
Picking the tooth
Meal or no meal…

Digging deep holes
The blood gush out
In response to
A broken heart

Dumbs, can not speak
Some times they rap
When pain hits peak
In sorrow wraps…

At times we men,
Turn good women
Into awful
Terrible nags.

The neighbor hears
Parrots and dogs
Next time when we
Say she has changed

Firstly; let us,
Correct our wrongs
We are diseases
Her nag; symptoms.

  1. Someone on WhatsApp, asked me to explain the last to stanza, so here it goes:

    [2/7, 9:33 AM] VinX:

    * The neighbors hear …

    – Parrots symbolizes talkers… Dogs often bark noisily…

    So if we are saying our wives, gf or sisters have changed into nags
    Let us as men, correct the wrong in us she is nagging about

    For, sometimes we men are the sickness, while their nag is the symptom…

    We should cure the sickness, then the symptom will disappear.
